Dell Streak 10 launching in June for $499?
It's no secret that Dell has been not-so-quietly working on the Streak 10.
The 10-inch Android tablet's existence was first leaked back in April 2010, it made a brief appearance at CES 2011 (albeit as a cardboard/plastic mockup), an accessory for it showed up on Amazon in late January, and then last month Dell confirmed that the device would be running Honeycomb (Android 3.0) when it arrives later this year.
And now we have details about the unit's purported release date and launch price, leaked to the world alongside a bunch of other tablets that a "major US retailer" wants it employees to know about. The credibility of the information printed on the "Line Up & Release Date" chart shown above is unknown, but if it's true, then it appears that the retailer is expecting to sell the Streak 10 for $499 in June.
That price seems right to me, as the just-released iPad 2 starts at $499, but I think the date could be inaccurate. If you look toward the top of the chart, you'll see that the Streak 7 has its launch schedule listed as "End of March" when, as we all know, it was really released on February 2nd. So maybe we're looking at May for the 10, maybe even late April.
Whenever it comes out (and assuming the specs are competitive), would you buy the Streak 10 for $499?[PreCentral]
