Dell prices Streak and Aero, Aero coming August 9thAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Dell may be remaining quiet on the release date for it's 5-inch Streak, but they've finally come clean about the other most important bit of info about the device: the price. On the official Direct2Dell blog, the company announced that the Streak will cost $299.99 with a two-year AT&T contract, while a contract-free model will set you back a cool $549.99. Customers that ordered the device during the presale period, running from July 20th through July 27th (aka today), will get first dibs at the Streak.
Meanwhile, Dell also came forward with more information on the Aero, its other upcoming Android-powered smartphone. The Aero will be released on August 9th for $99.99 on a two-year AT&T contract. Customers that don't feel like signing away two years of their mobile life can snag an Aero contract-free for $299.99.
While the Streak is definitely priced at the high-end of the spectrum for smartphones today, it sounds like a reasonable amount for a 5-inch device. Unfortunately, we're not any closer to knowing precisely when the Streak will actually land in the hands of customers, but I'm sure we'll be seeing it sooner rather than later. The Aero's pricing, like the Streak's, seems to be pretty fair considering $100 seems to be a normal price for a mid-range smartphone as of late. So, are any of you planning on to get your Android fix by grabbing a Streak or Aero?
