Dell says it's due in "late July," and it's opening a 24-hour presale launch window with free second-day shipping and a Bluetooth headset for 99 cents to sweeten the deal. You'll need to sign up to be notified.

Thanks for spreading the good news! And apparently, according to the spec sheet, the Dell website is selling the international version, not TMUS or AT&T frequencies. The Streak would make a perfect second phone, an entertainment phone to complement my business phone.

The real question will be..is Dell going to be committed to marketing the Streak? Their past attempts at moving beyond corporate and into the consumer space (DJ Ditty, Web PC, Bamboo Eco (which was pretty cool)) have been pretty lackluster. Hopefully they treat the Streak as something special.

Actually I rechecked, it is AT&T 3G at 1900, but also international 3G at 2100.

The Streak is a great and unique device, but yes, marketing consumer products is not Dell's strong point. Imagine what the Streak could do with Apple's or Verizon's marketing behind it! Still, I think it will do well, since there really is no competition.
