Unlocked Dell Streak now on sale direct from Dell

If you've been holding off buying an unlocked Dell Streak out of a sense of loyalty to Dell rather than AT&T, the day of credit card flexing is upon you. Dell is now offering the Streak direct, complete with Android 2.2 Froyo pre-loaded, priced at $549.99 with a bundled 16GB microSD card. Unfortunately, while a T-Mobile USA SIM will be recognized, and voice and EDGE data supported, the Streak still only supports AT&T 3G bands and so they're your only option in the US if you want high speed mobile data. Meanwhile it's still available for $299.99 with a new, two-year agreement from the carrier. [via StreakSmart]
