Official Dell Streak Details Emerge on Eve of Release, No T-Mobile Support
Dell has taken to their company blog to shed light on their forthcoming Streak tablet/phone. Among the details shared is the fact that there are no plans to support T-Mobile’s network. Tough stuff for those of you holding out hope that we’d see a variant certified for their network. On a positive note, it has been confirmed that Android 2.2 “Froyo” will be coming later this year in an over-the-air (OTA) update. As of right now, the only color option is Carbon Black, but a New Cherry Red will be the next color offered. You may recall seeing CEO Michael Dell playing with a red variant early this year.
It’s worth pointing out that the Dell Streak is receiving tremendous amounts of buzz. According to spokesman Lionel Menchaca, this is the most successful pre-sale the company has ever offered, far bigger than anything he’s seen in his 16 years at Dell.
Here’s a clip with developer Kevin Andrew demonstrating the device running Android 2.1 “Eclair”. Maybe it’s me, but I think Kevin’s wording hints at a different device headed for T-Mobile.
“…This particular unit is not certified or compatible with the T-Mobile 3G network…”
Thanks for the glimmer of hope, Kevin!
