It was under a month ago that Optus announced that they would be selling the Dell Streak 7 in the lead up to the Christmas holidays, it seemed pretty weird that it came out of nowhere and now we know why. Dell is discontinuing the Streak 7 — 4 months after ceasing production of the original Streak — to focus on other products (most likely Windows 8 tablets), so it’s a fair assumption to think Optus received a whole heap of the Streak 7s for cheap in order to get rid of them out of Dell’s warehouses as production stopped.
If you’re still hoping to get a hold of a Streak 7 for whatever reason, Optus have them for $0 upfront on a 2 year $29/mo Tablet Plan which includes 4GB of data for all your internet needs.
