WiFi-only Dell Streak 7 pre-orders open

Fresh from its WiFi-certification, the 3G-free version of Dell’s Streak 7 tablet has already been spotted by Androidois as up for pre-order at Amazon. The Dell Streak 7 WiFi lacks a release date right now, but the retailer is happy to take your $379.99 in advance and ship out the Froyo slate when it’s ready.

Specifications look to be in-line with the original Streak 7 we reviewed back in January, which means NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor, a 7-inch display running at WVGA resolution, WiFi, Bluetooth and – unlike the WiFi-only iPad 2 – proper GPS. What you don’t get is HSPA+ support for T-Mobile USA’s network.

Unfortunately, the mere 800 x 480 display still rankles on a 7-inch device, when Samsung and others are already offering 1024 x 800 panels on the same size slate. We’d also prefer to see Android 3.0 Honeycomb, of course, though Dell is yet to confirm when (or indeed if) the Streak 7 will get it.
