Dell has decided to suddenly shave no less than $180 off its pricing for the unlocked Dell Streak part-smartphone, part-tablet device. As such, you can now order a contract-free Streak from Dell for just $399.99 (as opposed to the $579.99 they have been asking up until today).
There’s a catch, though. Well, actually two. First off, it won’t come with Android 2.2 Froyo preinstalled. You’ll have to manually update it yourself once you get it.
And speaking of that, Dell will only ship these to customers on January 10.
But, if you’ve wanted to buy a Streak yet didn’t want to commit to a 2-year contract with AT&T, and also didn’t want to spend almost $600 on it, here’s your chance to get some hybrid smartphone/tablet action. And you should probably order fast, since CES is right around the corner (and before January 10), and once you’ll get your eyes on the rumored Honeycomb-powered tablets that will get announced there, you may just entirely forget that the Streak exists.
