The Dell Streak is coming to AT&T on August 13 with a $300 on-contract price

Out of nowhere as well, the Dell Streak is readying itself to supplant the mammoth sized 4.3” displays found on both the HTC HD2 and EVO 4G with its own gargantuan 5” touchscreen. Dell officially announced the availability of the Android powered device through AT&T with its launch date set for August 13th. If you're intent on snagging one come launch day, just expect to pony up a higher than normal $300 if you're going to purchase it with a 2-year agreement. Of course $200 seems to be that sweet spot for most of the high-end smartphones of late, but for the Dell Streak, it'll be interesting to see if consumers would be willing to dish out that higher amount for something that can hail as having the largest display on AT&T's handset lineup. Everything else under the hood has a lot in common with other high-end Android smartphones, such as a 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, front-facing VGA camera, 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. If you're not into getting yourself tied down with a contract, you can shell out $550 to purchase the Dell Streak outright – which definitely encroaches in tablet territory when you factor in something like the iPad. Nonetheless, if the value is more than adequate for you, then maybe paying its no-contract price should suffice.
