Streak 7 vanishes from Dell site

Streak 7 vanishes from Dell siteThe Android-rockin’ Dell Streak 7 first popped up back in April, offering a dual-core processor, 7in display, front and rear cameras, and 16GB storage for the fairly reasonable price of £299.

However, a visit to Dell's US site reveals that the tablet has suddenly been discontinued. Well, in the States, at least.

The Streak 7 still appears on the Dell UK store (£249, should ye care), but the US site explains: “Streak 7 is no longer available online, but you can browse our other mobile devices for similar products”.

The move follows the disappearance of the Dell Streak 5 back in August. What does it all mean? Engadget received the following statement from Dell:

“[The Dell Streak 7] continues to be available in many markets through retail, distributors and carrier partners such as Optus in Australia. A 10-inch version of the tablet, Streak 10 Pro, is currently offered in China, offering the ultimate digital divide between work and life.

“We remain committed to expanding our reach beyond PCs with a targeted set of open, standards-based mobility solutions and services designed for commercial and mobile professional customers.”

Dell has been acting more than a little odd of late. The US manufacturer previously backed Windows Phone 7 with the QWERTY-toting Dell Venue Pro, but turned its nose up when Mango arrived.

Weird beard. What are you up to, Dell?

Stock was cleared up last week @ $160 a pop. Very nice device for such a price. There is unofficial Honeycomb update for it available.

That would be a very nice price, I take it it wasnt at that price over here?

On a side note is it just me or are all the 3G versions of tablets (not just the iPad) rediculously expensive, even the Cheap China tablets put a huge £30+ premium ontop of thier tablet price for just adding a small and cheap component like the 3G sim reader, madness!
