  1. is anybody actually excited about this?

  2. Finally. Yes, Dell gets in the android door at last. oh I didn’t know it has a FFC. It’s like a super evo

  3. No mention of the version of Android it runs on? I’m guessing its still the archaic 1.6!

  4. about time, my question is does pre-order count for existing at&t customer upgrade? probably not, seeing they keep saying “new contract.” Just curious if anyone had more info on that.

  5. notice they make a special point to say: The Dell Streak was designed with the future in mind to support future software, application and platform upgrades.
    That’s because it probably really needs it!

  6. i don’t know about you guys but i’ve never been a fan of dell…

  7. Unfortunately for “F”ing Dell, a lot of potential customers got pissed off when they pulled out all the false information of the release date on their website.

    Now, all your Pre-order signees already has a CAPTIVATE!

  8. So AT&T promised 5 Android phones by end of 1H 2010.

    About 1.5 months after that, they have 5 phones:
    1) Motorola Backflip
    2) HTC Aria
    3) Samsung Captivate
    4) SonyEricsson Xperia X10 (post-deadline)
    5) Dell Streak (post-deadline)

    Btw, where is the Dell Aero?

  9. Who cares? Dell Shmell!

  10. this may sound stupid so please dont criticize me but when they say $550 of they mean unlocked right?

  11. you won’t say Dell Shmell once the Dell Thunder arrives…

  12. That Thunder sure looks sexy.

  13. Anyone know whether or not they will hunt you down and change your data plan if you buy this one unlocked?

  14. @andulas

    That doesn’t mean unlocked. $550 is the full price of the phone without the two year contract agreement discount.

  15. @MT It does effectively means unlocked since you can get it unlocked after your first month’s payment.

  16. Highly doubt they would sell it unlocked. You would need unlock codes or some special tools to get it unlocked.

  17. I’ll be getting the X10 the Dell Streak is OVERLY PRICE and too big to be a cell phone.

  18. its probly shitty just like their computers

  19. Its definitely unlocked for $550, just like Captivate is
    unlocked for $500. And will most likely come with Android 2.1.
    The Dell Aero was advertised with 2.1, so why not the Streak.
    Have u been watching Best Buy smartphone commerical ? Watch for upcoming Streak to b blended into that commerical soon !?! Android 2.2 will be later this year, hopefully Sept. Also $299
    may include Docking station with HDMI, USB & Lineout ?!? Now if all of the above comes true, they may have a Hit after all. Want be long & we’ll know for sure.

  20. I just have a hard time understanding the need for a cell phone this big. But then maybe the intended target market isn’t for people who will use the phone feature.

  21. i know im behind the curve with this question but will the x10 have a ffc and be able to make phone calls? im on board if it can but when you think about the fact that the only thing really outdated on the streak, which is already getting updated, you really are getting a lot of bang for your buck

  22. i just read in a site called dellstreak.com that its not unocked for $550 :( im heartbroken i guess ill wait until a unlock code comes or if im desprate enough go to england to get it
