    Well its been officially annouced by O2 that they will be stocking the dell streak/mini 5 in "early june" at their shops and at carphonewarehouse.

    http://mediacentre.o2.co.uk/Press-Releases/Dell-Streak-to-launch-exclusively-on-O2-29d.aspx

    There was then a series of posts by the usual tech sites which all had slightly different info in. See the following links.

    Dell Streak hits the UK as an O2 exclusive | Electricpig

    Dell Streak official: exclusive to O2 UK in early June -- Engadget

    Dell Streak official: O2 UK in June, US this Summer [Video] - SlashGear

    The main contradictions at this point seem to be over exactly what version of Android it'll be running at launch and when it'll receive the OTA update to froyo. The other main contradiction seems to be over exactly how much internal memory it has.

    But either way its coming :) Cant wait to try it out and see if I like the size or not. Though if it does launch with 1.6 I'll be a bit disappointed.

    carphone warehouse confirming its android 1.6 out the box with a OTA "soon" and 16gb micro sd included with it. Not sure if that means inbuilt 16gb and then also your additional SD card slot or just that 16gb. Hopefully they will put that 16gb in the "hidden" slot inside the body

    The information yesterday was not yet but I've had a chat with a contact we have at Dell and they are saying yes. He couldn't give me much info other than pictures but he did give me a price range in dollars. How accurate that is I dont know but he did seem to think it'd be sold separately off contract.

    We'd heard $399-$549 but the details the person we spoke to had are very very sketchy so I wouldnt take this as a solid bit of info.
