Dell Streak prices revealed

Dell Streak

The Carphone Warehouse has revealed the price of the upcoming Dell Streak, which it has announced will cost the same as the low-end iPad.

The five-inch touch screen, Android-based tablet is set to launch this Friday solely on the O2 network. Carphone Warehouse will sell the device in its retail stores. Until now, the pricing has been a closely guarded secret.

Taken as a contract-free device, the Dell Streak will cost 429 the same as the low-end iPad or, with a contract, it will be 25 per month including data - a limit hasn't been confirmed as yet - or 35 per month for calls and unlimited data.

The Streak has a five megapixel camera, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, five-inch capacitive multi-touch screen and it supports up to 32GB on a MicroSD card.

It is significantly smaller than the nine inch iPad, and, unlike the iPad, will be able to run Adobe Flash.
