Dell CEO: Streak coming next month to Telefonica O2, 'later this summer' to AT&T

Edgadget:

You know who can't stop talking about (or showing off) the Dell Streak / Mini 5? Company CEO Michael Dell, that's who. The man once again returned with his Android-powered 5-inch display of choice, showing it off on stage at the Citrix Synergy conference this morning. Sure, we've seen the handset ad nauseum at this point -- we're even a proud owner of one prototype -- but here's the quote that piqued our interest: "this [phone] will be available starting next month, first with our partner 02 Telefonica [sic] in Europe, then later this summer with our pretty good partner here in the United States, AT&T."

If the phones just keep getting bigger we might as well all just carry around pads. I'm okay with current size of smart-phone screens, imo there's no need to keep making them bigger.

4-4.1 inches for the screen is enough.

If they would utilize the device better we could see 5 inch screens on devices of the same size as now.

Dell US now offering Streak unlocked with Froyo, in Cherry Red

Engadget: We knew good and well that Android 2.2 was sneaking out and making itself active on Dell's unlocked Streak units, but now it seems that the backlog of older units has been cleared.

Curiously, that 16GB model is $30 more than what the unlocked Android 1.6 model went for back in August.
