The Streak was previously available for $299.99 with a two-year service contract with AT&T. Now buyers will only have to fork over $99.99 and their signatures to a two-year agreement. The unlocked, unsubsidized price remains at $499.99.
Why the price drop? Best Buy hasn't revealed anything. It could be the holidays. Or maybe the device just isn't that popular (many Android-based tablets haven't been so far), and the mega-retailer wants to clear some stock before the New Year and some promised new slate PC debuts at CES 2011.
