The world's first 4G (subject to your definition) tablet is available now! Well, if you live on the East Coast, and assuming snow or rain or some terrible combination thereof aren't preventing you from going outside. Those of us west of the Rockies will have to wait another 2 hours before getting our Streak on, but I feel like my LA sunshine is worth it. Of course, anyone can order it online right now. Oh, and you can get it directly from Dell as well.

A quick reminder on the specs:

  • NVidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • 16GB internal SD storage plus SD card slot
  • 7" WVGA display
  • 5MP rear and 1.3MP front cameras
  • Android 2.2 w/ Dell Stage UI

While we were thoroughly unimpressed with the Streak 7 (see Brian's hands-on), there's no denying the attractiveness of Tegra 2 power and HSPA+ speeds. And for a paltry $200 after $50 mail-in rebate on a new 2-year agreement, it's quite the bargain. Off contract, expect to cough up 450 big ones. Of course, the software is old, outdated, and essentially the same as that found on the original Streak, minus the whole phone part. Sounds like an ideal Honeycomb port candidate, and you can bet we'll keep our eyes open for just that in the coming weeks.

Will you be getting a Streak 7? Already have one? Let us know in the comments.

T-Mobile, Dell

    No way in hell. The screen on it is really bad, and it kills the whole experience. Our CES impressions side-by-side with the Galaxy Tab were that it was definitely faster due to a more modern dual-core CPU, but the screen could not even be compared to the Tab. It almost felt resistive.
