Dell Streak Available August 12…Really

Dell has announced the official (for real) launch of the Streak on AT&T.

The pre-sale is still on, and will occur on August 12. An email will be sent out the morning of the 12th, including a link to the sale site. As before, pre-orders will receive a free upgrade to 2nd Business Day shipping and an exclusive coupon code for a 99ยข Plantronics Bluetooth Headset, with purchase of course. The Streak will go on sale to everyone else on Friday the 13th. Make of that what you will.

The Streak will set you back $300 on contract, or $550 without. This is roughly twice the price of the Xperia X10, but with few obvious additions. The screen is 1″ larger, and there is a front-facing camera. These are cool features, but should they double the price? Dell actually passed up Sony in a pricing point, which seems out of character for Dell. The Sony is actually the more affordable phone, and is fairly loaded with features. I wonder how well Dell will do here. Both devices feature Android 1.6, with promised upgrades in the near future. The Streak will jump straight to Froyo though, while Sony Ericsson will take a bit longer to get there.

If you haven’t registered for the pre-sale yet, there is apparently a little more time. You should hurry though. Sign up here.

The Streak is finally on its way. Dell missed one deadline, obviously missing its July launch. If this is still the phone for you, the wait is almost over.
