Dell Teases Dell Streak Prospects with Android 2.1 Demo

The Direct2Dell blog has new details regarding the company’s first Android MID/phone, the 5-inch Dell Streak. It turns out the Streak will ship with Android 1.6 (though an over the air update for 2.1, and then later 2.2, is forthcoming), will only work with AT&T’s network for cellular capabilities, and come in one color at launch: Carbon Black — no ETA on the Cherry Red version shown in the video below. FYI, Dell has a pre-sale promo going that will net you free 2nd day business shipping and a Plantronics Bluetooth headset for only 99¢.

UPDATE: An early leak by Dell states the Dell Streak will sell for $299 with a 2 year AT&T contract or $549 unlocked. Since Dell quickly removed the page it posted, it’s not 100% confirmed — though most likely it’s true since pre-orders start today. Hat tip: Engadget.
