Here’s an enticing deal for computer shoppers: buy a Dell laptop or desktop system for at least $699.99 and you can get an unlocked Dell Streak 5 Android tablet for a hundred bucks.
Purchasing both the computer and the tablet together with this special offer will save you $350 on the tablet, since the unlocked Dell Streak 5 currently runs $449.99. Although the Dell Streak 5 is also available for $99.99 on its own, that pricing requires a 2-year contract for 3G service from AT&T.
Although the Dell Streak 5 is more of a smartphone than a tablet, the 5″ Android device (running Froyo, Android 2.2) can be a nice add-on for a desktop or laptop purchase you were already planning. The bundle may also convince you to go with a laptop with a larger display (or perhaps a desktop system instead of a laptop), since you’ll now be getting a smaller mobile device that can do web surfing, emails, and mobile entertainment.
The Dell Streak 5 features a 5″ WVGA multi-touch display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and VGA front-facing camera, 2GB internal storage, a MicroSD card slot with 16GB pre-installed, and 512 MB of RAM.
If you are in the market for a new computer anyway, the $99.99 Dell Streak 5 is a bargain compared even to many smartphones with which it’s competing.
