Dell Streak: $549, or $300 with two-year AT&T contract

A few people have asked me about Dell’s Streak, the minitablet/maxiphone that surfaced in Seattle in May.

You could say it’s the latest version of the Origami ultramobile PC that Microsoft and Intel began developing about five years ago, but it runs Android software on Qualcomm hardware.

The company Tuesday finally announced that the Streak will be available to the general public on Friday for $549, or $300 with a two-year AT&T contract. It’s a few weeks late and $50 more than Dell said in June.

Like most big phones today, it’s based on a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm with 3G, Wi-Fi (b, g and n) and Bluetooth radios. It works with HSDPA networks (such as T-Mobile’s) that provide up to 7.2 Mbps downloads. It has a 5 megapixel still and video camera with a dual LED flash, plus a front facing VGA camera.

Here’s a Dell video showing it in action:
