Dell has announced that American customers willing to purchase an unsubsidized Dell Streak directly from the manufacturer can now do so from the company’s website. The unlocked phone will come at a price of $549.99 and will include a 16GB microSD card slot.
Just like what we had noted in our article earlier this month, this unlocked Dell Streak phone will run on Android 2.2 straight out of the box. However, before you get all too excited, here are some pointers to note. Firstly, only 3G bands from the AT&T network seem to be recognized at the moment.
What this means is that while you can indeed buy a T-Mobile SIM for your Streak, you may have to make do with their 2G/EDGE network for wireless internet access. Not really a great option if you are quite particular about accessing high speed internet on the go.
