Man. I'm all over it already. I also signed up for email and text alert. Plus you get a coupon code for a Bluetooth headset for 99 cents. How cool is that. I'm so tired of waiting for this device to come out. Finally something solid. Not some rumor saying the 14th or 19th. And yes.... Isn't it already late July. So anytime soon. Plus free upgrade to two day shipping! I'm going to pay for next day shipping if I can. Alot of people talking about it only having android 1.6 on it. But alteast that can be upgraded thru Dell or custom rom. Can't upgrade screen size. Lol. Bring this bad boy out already.

This is great news. I wonder if this effectively means they've decided to go the unbranded, unlocked and unsubsidized route.

Thanks for the heads up guys. I signed up as well. Please clue me in on something though regarding T-Mobile:

1. The specs shows 1900mhz for GSM/EDGE. So as for T-Mobile...check
2. It also says UTMS is 2100mhz. This is T-Mobile 3G as well. My question is T-Mobile is listed as 1700/2100. Do you need both for proper functioning?

This is probably stupid to some of you, but I want to make sure.

I thought their plan all along was to go unbranded and unlocked AND subsidized with AT&T. There's also a rumor about subsidizing with T-Mobile, too.

Yeah, you need 1700/2100 (AWS) for T-Mobile 3G. Otherwise, you can only use edge.

Gimpage/bloatware aside, it was good to be able to check out the Captivate in person, so if they carry it in stores, great. Even if you decide to buy the unlocked version, you'll have a local source for accessories.

There's an update re: Dell's early sign up program. Check here for the details.

The gist of it is that, after you've signed up, Dell will send you an email next week with a link you can use to order your Streak. They also said there will be an additional update with exactly when the email will go out next week.

I guess because I am signed up, I got this in an email from Dell, not very clarrifying though, other than it makes it clear that nothing is happening before NEXT week, so I would say the rumors of Tuesday might be somewhat close and probably not seeing anything new on Sunday

24 hour pre-sale window. Not too much of a head start. So i guess 1 whole day before everyone else can order it. Im gonna add next day air shipping to mine. i really want to get my hands on one of these.

I guess it's pretty certain that the Dell price will be $500.00?

You can get them on ebay for $400-500 but, I believe, that would be without a warranty.

That's a risk I'm not willing to take.

And also you might be able to talk AT&T into an early upgrade without waiting for your contract to expire. Sometimes AT&T will do that for a fee of around $75 or so. If they will and they are subsidizing it, you could stand to save a bundle.

Of course you'll have to wait for AT&T to add the Streak to their system. And I suppose they'd make you take a new 2 year contract which wouldn't be an unlimited data plan.

Dell Streak

Calling the Dell Streak an "Android Phone" is entering a grey area - with a massive 5-inch screen the device is practically a tablet but it hauls cellular connectivity that make "phone" a perfectly acceptable categorization. By ... Read More
