Dell Streak Without Contract Isn’t Unlocked, Still SIM-Locked to AT&T

Dell Streak Without Contract Isn’t Unlocked, Still SIM-Locked to AT&T

Here in the United States, if you buy a device without a contract, even if it's on a GSM-based network (like AT&T), it's still going to be locked to the carrier. That's something that's not necessarily a new thing around these parts. Buying it off contract means just that: no contract. However, all over the world, buying a device without the contract tying it down, or lowering its price, usually (sometimes) means that you get it unlocked, and therefore can use it wherever you want, without the trouble of being locked to any one particular carrier. If, for some reason, you were expecting to get that latter deal with the Dell Streak, which goes for $549 san contract, you'll be disappointed.

Dell Streak Pricing and Availability Finally Unveiled: August 13th for $300 with AT&T Contract

Dell Streak Pricing and Availability Finally Unveiled: August 13th for $300 with AT&T Contract

The Dell Streak's details haven't necessarily been all that hidden over the last few months. In fact, we even had plenty of hands-on time with the device to get a review up. But, one of the missing aspects of the device, as far as the US-based release goes, was the price, and the availability date for the launch on AT&T. But, that's all been taken care of now, thanks to official word from Dell.

Amazon list Dell Streak (as a Samsung); pricing & release still MIA

Amazon list Dell Streak (as a Samsung); pricing & release still MIA

Dell's Streak Android MID has gained a sparsely-detailed Amazon product page, but it looks like someone at the retailer has got confused over where exactly the slate has come from.  Amazon reckons it's Samsung that makes the Streak, but we'd be more interested to hear their pricing for the handset; Dell are yet to confirm their pricing, though a previous leak tipped a $550 SIM-free figure or $299.99 with a new, two-year AT&T agreement.

Nationite MIDnite Android 2.2 MID: an affordable Cortex A8 tablet?

Nationite MIDnite Android 2.2 MID: an affordable Cortex A8 tablet?

There's been no shortage of Android tablets in recent months, many little more than PMP hardware repurposed for MID duties with a copy of the Google OS; rarer are models based on the speedy ARM Cortex A8 technology as used in the iPad's Apple A4 CPU or Samsung's Hummingbird.  We're curious, then, about the Nationite MIDnite (a WITS A81-E rebadge), packing a 600MHz Texas Instruments OMAP3 3530 core with a 7-inch touchscreen, Android 2.2 and access to the Android Market, despite a sub-$200 preorder price.

Dell Streak Beta Units Being Blocked from AT&T’s Network? [Updated]

Dell Streak Beta Units Being Blocked from AT&T’s Network? [Updated]

We all know the Dell Streak is coming to AT&T, we just don't know exactly when, quite yet. But, for a few lucky individuals out there, who happened to be included in Dell's beta tests of the Mobile Internet Device (MID), they've been able to use the device to their heart's contents for a little while now. Handed out in Austin, Texas, the users were supposed to test the device as they would any other, and apparently they were going to be able to keep them after the tests completed.

Dell Streak $550 price posted then pulled

Dell Streak $550 price posted then pulled

Looks like whoever's running Dell's servers needs to drink less coffee.  After first announcing that the 5-inch Dell Streak Android tablet would go on sale today - and then telling us that it was a mistake caused by some "site tests"  - the company then revealed pricing in a new blog post, only to yank that.  Unfortunately, once something is out on the internet it's tough to get it back in, and so we now have a pretty good idea that the Streak will cost $549.99 from Dell themselves, unlocked and contract-free, or $299.99 from AT&T with a new, two-year agreement.
