Dell Streak 7: $200 After Rebate on Wednesday

T-Mobile USA announced via Twitter on Monday that the Dell Streak7 will be sold for $199.99 after a $50 rebate starting Wednesday.

The carrier unveiled the Streak 7 on Jan. 6 at the International CES trade show in Las Vegas.

The tablet runs the Android 2.2 operating system and features a 7-in. touchscreen and a dual-core Nvidia processor with each core capable of 1 GHz speeds.

At CES, T-Mobile officials said the Streak 7 price would be lower than the prices for tablets selling at $400 to $600.

While smartphones and tablets are mostly priced to draw customers into two-year contracts where carriers make their most money, the T-Mobile tweet doesn't say what the the monthly service minimum charge will be. It notes there must be two years on a qualifying plan without naming that plan. A spokesman could not be reached for further comment. The tweet takes customers to a T-Mobile Web site where customers can sign up to be notified about Streak 7 availability.
