Rumor has it that AT&T will launch the 5-inch Dell Streak on Monday.
If unnamed sources are correct, then consumers will see the Dell Streak launch on AT&T's network as early as Monday, July 19. Currently the report is unconfirmed and does not provide any additional detail such as subsidized pricing. But what we do know is that the tablet will sell for roughly $500 as an unlocked device.
The Dell Streak combines the functionality of a tablet with the portability of a smartphone. Its 5-inch WVGA display cranks out a 800 x 480 pixel resolution and is backed by a meaty 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. 2GB of on-board storage keeps the Android (v2.2) platform from going into a "low disk space" frenzy.
Although Dell is selling the device as a portable tablet PC, the Streak has built-in phone capabilities. It also provides support for up to 32GB of external memory, and features two cameras--one 5-megapixel on the back partnered with a dual-LED flash, and a front-facing VGA camera for video conferencing.
Voice plans provided by AT&T start at $40 per month. Smartphone plans typically add an additional $15 for the 200MB data package. Those who need a bigger download stream will be required to pay $25 per month for the 2GB data plan.
But, as previously stated, the news of AT&T offering the Dell Streak beginning Monday is unconfirmed. Plan prices listed here may not reflect with plans AT&T may officially offer for the device.
If the launch will indeed place, then stay tuned for something more official within the next few days.
