Dell Streak coming to AT&T later this summer

We've heard that the Dell Streak, the sexy Android MID heretofore known as the Dell Mini 5, was headed to AT&T before. But haven't heard official confirmation since. Until now that is. CEO Michael Dell showed off the Streak (again) at the Citrix Synergy conference and spilled the beans for us. To quote:

"[The Streak] will be available starting next month, first with our partner 02 Telefonica in Europe, then later this summer with our pretty good partner here in the United States, AT&T." 

We've been really impressed with what we've seen in the Streak and hope that it can start a trend of awesome Android devices on AT&T. Remember, the Streak is expected to run Android 2.1 (will it be 2.2 by late summer?) and comes with a 5-inch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera and your usual slew of connectivity options. We'd complain and wonder aloud why Europe is getting it first but hey, just getting a good Android device on AT&T is good enough. [eweek via Engadget]

  • Any takers? Hello?
  • I'm gettin this or the EVO just not sure which one yet. I've never had ATT or Sprint so I'm not sure which one has better service.
  • I guess it all depends on where you live and what you plan on doing with the phone. You should research 3G & WiMAX(if you plan on using the EVO to full potential) coverage as well as speeds of the 3G Coverage. I can tell you that AT&T 3G is faster, but only because the amount of area it covers it greatly smaller than Sprint, meaning they have less area to push to, but if you live inside a major city then the smaller coverage area won't matter. But if you live in a major city, chances are that WiMAX(10x faster than 3G) is either already in your city or on it's way. But most importantly you just need to research EVERYTHING you can about all the details and specs of the device and the coverage for those devices before you make an investment into a new "laptop with phone capabilities."
  • I have been waiting to hear some info on this phone. I'm glad att is getting this phone. Lets hope att dosent kill it if so we can always root it. jus imagine what custom roms can be done with the power of this phone.
  • Any info on the screen for multitouch?
    For example, HTC is now using the Atmel mxt224 screen vs. the old Synaptics 2000, Incredible and Evo have the new screen. I'd like to avoid limitations:
  • Hold up. I have to buy this tablet from AT&T? Probably with some sort of data plan or contract? I was holding off the iPad in hopes of being able to snag this tablet instead, at a lower price. Looks like that was a pipe dream. I may as well go ahead and order that iPad.
  • This ISN'T the Dell tablet, its a MID.
