Everybody loves the option of choosing their own carrier. And the Dell Streak is now available for purchase factory unlocked. The half-tablet-computer-half-phone Dell Streak packs a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 5-inch display capable of taking quite a beating, along with a number of other goodies. The Streak shipped with Android 1.6 but will be updated to 2.2, as promised by Dell, sometime this year. The phone is currently only available in the UK but will be available in the U.S. next month for the reasonable price of $500. [via Engadget]
