Updated: Dell Streak 7 16GB priced up for the UK: £299, 7-inch Tegra 2 Froyo tablet

Dell has just announced the availability of its Streak 7 Android tab. It’s priced up at £299 and is available to buy now via Dell’s website with delivery included.

The Streak 7 runs on Android 2.2 Froyo for now, but an over the air upgrade to 2.3 Gingerbread is due to follow.

While it doesn’t come with the sweet taste of Honeycomb, the Streak 7 does have a Tegra 2 dual-core chip beating away at its heart.

This means you’ll be able to enjoy faster web browsing, more efficient multitasking and (most importantly) play the best in high end Android gaming.

Other features and functions of the Streak 7 include a 5-megapixel main camera and a 1.3-megapixel front facer, and that 7-inch screen is protected by Gorilla Glass, like the original Dell Streak.

You can also order the Streak 7 Audio Video dock (which we saw at Mobile World Congress) for £39.00 as well. This dock features a full-sized HDMI-out, micros USB and a 3.5mm line out.

You can also order a whole bunch of other accessories like extra cables, a leather case and a car kit, should you wish to use your Streak 7 as a gigantic sat-nav.

Currently, there’s just a Wi-Fi-only version of the Streak 7 available, although we’re told a 3G + Wi-Fi edition should be hitting the shelves later this spring.

We should be seeing 32GB editions of the Streak 7 at some point this year too. We’ll keep you posted on both of these.

Update: We’ve just had a chat with Dell who’ve got some more info to add regarding Android updates on the Streak 7. We’re told that the Streak 7 has been “designed to accommodate an upgrade,” although we’ve not been told to what.

Interestingly, Dell said that “Google has yet to announce the hardware requirements for Honeycomb, so cannot confirm if we’ll offer an upgrade [to Android 3.0] at this time.”

So we could well be seeing Honeycomb on the Streak 7 – or we could not. Stay tuned for details as and when they come.
