T-Mobile to sell Dell Streak 7 for $200 after rebate

Dell's 7", Android-powered Streak 7 tablet will debut with a bang later this week. T-Mobile posted the following in its Twitter feed yesterday:

Our first 4G tablet, Dell #Streak7, hits stores Feb 2 for $199.99. http://cot.ag/fYaZTO New 2yr agmt on qual’g plan + $50 MIR req’d.

Translation: you can grab the Streak for a cool $200 on Wednesday, although you'll need to sign up for a new two-year agreement with a qualifying plan and submit a $50 mail-in rebate form first. The appealing price tag comes with some strings attached, in other words. This could still be a decent deal if T-Mobile offers an affordable 4G plan to go with the tablet, so I'll reserve judgment until Wednesday.

According to Dell's product page, the Streak 7 features a 7" 800x480 multi-touch screen, a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra system-on-a-chip, Android 2.2 Froyo, a couple of cameras, and 16GB of internal storage capacity. It weighs just under 16 oz (450 g) and is about half an inch thick (12.4 mm). The launch might be a bit premature, since Android 3.0 still isn't out, but early adopters should be able to upgrade to the new software when Google releases it—Dell mentions "over the air upgrade capability."
