Been holding out for this after extensively playing with the 5 inch version but at £299 without 3G, that's pricing it the same as the Galaxy Tab with 3G is from O2 atm...
Dell has released its 7in Android tablet, the Streak 7, in the UK, pricing the fondleslab at £299. Dell Streak 7 The gadget only has 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity and only runs Android 2.2 Froyo.

..stop messing with these small screens people want to be able to browse and do email and other tasks simply and comfortably and a 7" screen is too small for that.

Seriously, what are Apple thinking by ignoring the 7" form factor? Ah well, more money for the droids I guess.
Overpriced considering 8G version of Archos 70 is available now from Amazon for £190 (bastards have dropped the price from the £229 I paid for mine six weeks ago but c' est la vie).
@FordPrefect. As in everything, 7" is more than adequate. :o)

which is why I said it. I use my phone for calls and texts, and have it on a cheap tariff for them from Orange. I use my tablet for internet stuff and have it on a cheap tariff for that from 3. I save money and have two devices which can function independently. And my phone's battery doesn't get hit with constant wireless comms.
I understand the argument but for me, the killer tablet feature is 3G.
