Deal of the day: Dell Streak 7 for $179

The 7in Dell Streak is currently selling on Catch of the Day for $179 plus postage

Australian online deal site Catch of the Day has decided the 7in Dell Streak Android tablet is still worthy of some attention.

The 7in Android tablet, first launched in the US in early 2011, is currently selling on Catch of the Day for $179 plus postage. The Dell Streak 7 previously sold through Optus in Australia on a two year contract plan, or $279 outright. It was launched in Australia in late November 2011.

The Dell Streak 7 was a follow up to the original 5in Dell Streak, which was marketed as a tablet with phone capabilities, but didn't hit any great heights after its release.

The 7in Dell Streak has a 5-megapixel camera that doubles as a video recorder, a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity.

The Streak has 16GB of internal memory, but also includes a microSD card slot for extra storage and has full access to the Google Play Store for third party applications.

The Dell Streak sold through Catch of the Day comes with the 3.2 Honeycomb version of Google's Android operating system, which was initially designed for tablet devices. Due to the age of the device, it won't receive an official update to either 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or 4.1 Jelly Bean versions of the Android platform.

The Streak may be old, but a 7in 3G tablet from a reputable brand is definitely worth a look, especially at this price.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
