US Dell Streak on sale July 28th [Update: pre-sale is back]

We were only talking about the US version of the Dell Streak this morning, and now comes news that the 5-inch Android tablet will go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday July 28th.  The company's presales page has been updated, ending the registration process and announcing that would-be owners should "visit www.dell.com/streak tomorrow to purchase".

Updated with Dell comment after the cut

Right now the link simply redirects to the same presales information page.  Earlier today, Dell confirmed that the Streak would only support AT&T 3G, rather than T-Mobile USA, and that the Android 2.2 Froyo firmware update was still a work in progress due to be released later in 2010.  For more on the Dell Streak, check out our full review.

Update: That was quick: Dell has taken down the notice suggesting the Streak will go on sale tomorrow, and reinstated the pre-sale. Guess we'll find out for sure tomorrow. [Thanks David!]

Update 2: Dell has been in touch to say that the purchase information suggesting a release tomorrow was "inaccurate" and accidentally caused during some online site tests.
