The Dell Streak 7 hasn't been met with much praise stateside, but maybe it will have better luck now that the Wi-Fi only version is being launched in the United Kingdom.

The 7-inch successor to the Dell Streak 5 is available in the U.K. now for £299 ($488). Compare that to the Streak 7 launched with T-Mobile USA in February for $199.99...but with a monthly data plan on contract. Sure, it supports 4G coverage, but it still only has Android 2.2. A Honeycomb update is promised, but it's not clear when that will be.

Thus, the Wi-Fi only version might be the better option. It still retains the NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core processor, Gorilla Glass on the display, Adobe Flash support and dual cameras. And don't forget about contract freedom!

Would you consider buying a Wi-Fi only version of the Dell Streak 7?
