Today we learn the Dell Streak is going on sale next month for $500. Though the price sounds steep, especially when compared to the $199 sweet spot Apple, HTC and the rest seem to be favoring, the 5-inch Android device is different in that it's coming unlocked.
That's right, similar to what Google offered with the Nexus One, the Dell Streak will be available direct to customers through the Dell's wesbite. Back in May, Dell confirmed the device would be hitting AT&T sometime during the summer and the company confirmed an exclusive agreement with O2 UK, so it's rather surprising to hear the device will be available unlocked in the US. We'll keep you updated on this one and let you know when we hear more.
The Dell Streak packs a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor; a 800x480 capacitive touch-screen display with multi-touch zooming; a 5MP camera with a dual-LED flash; Wi-Fi; and 3G.
