Dell Streak 7 to launch on T-Mobile Feb. 2; $200 with contract and MIR, $450 sans contract

The Dell Streak 7 is reportedly headed for T-Mobile on Feb. 2nd, according to a Tweet by the carrier. The device is T-Mobile first 4G tablet, the company emphasizes, and will come with a much nicer price point than we've seen before for an Android tablet: $199.99 (subsidized, and with a $50 mail-in rebate).

Sans contract, the device will run $450, which seems like a sweet price for a 3G enabled 7-inch Android tablet. The device is dual-core Tegra 2 powered (1GHz), has the aforementioned 7-inch screen and comes in slightly larger overall than a Samsung Galaxy Tab. The device carries the non-tablet-optimized Android 2.2. As part of the price drop, however, the screen only carries an 800 x 480 resolution, although it is Gorilla Glass.

Compared to the iPad, the Dell Streak, even off contract, offers a lower price point than the wi-fi only iPad ($499). The lowest-priced 3G capable iPad is $629, without a contract.
