Dell CEO Michael Dell has confirmed launch details for the Dell Streak aka the Dell Mini 5 MID.  The outspoken exec took to the stage at the Citrix Synergy conference and announced that the voice-enabled handheld would "be available starting next month, first with our partner O2 Telefonica in Europe, then later this summer with our pretty good partner here in the United States, AT&T."

The Telefonica news - which will see the Dell Streak arrive in Europe before it launches in the US - confirms our speculation last month that the carrier had clinched a deal with Dell for an O2 Streak exclusive.  Still to be announced is pricing and specific availability of the Dell Streak, together with which of the countries Telefonica serve - which includes the UK, Germany and Ireland - will get the MID first.

The Dell Streak has a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen, UMTS/HSPA modem with voice-call functionality and a 5-megapixel camera.  Running the Android OS - version as yet unconfirmed - with several Dell UI tweaks, the company have previously positioned it as a "voice-enabled tablet" rather than an oversized smartphone.
