Dell Streak MID could be headed to AT&T in 2010


Now I don't want to get everyone overly excited about something that is strictly a rumor at this point, but according to the Commercial Times, Dell has supposedly already decided on Qisda from Taiwan as its partner to make the Streak MID a reality. Not only that, they have apparently thought enough of AT&T to bring them into the fold, so those of us here in the US have yet another Android device to look forward to in the upcoming months.

The article doesn't specifically mention the Streak, but we do know that Dell has prototypes running around out there, so it would be the likely choice to compete with the Nokia N900 that will be strutting its stuff on T-Mobile. It could also be interesting to see how AT&T manages the Streak so as not to ruffle any feathers over at Apple with its cash cow iPhone.

AT&T currently is the only US wireless provider without a single Android device in their lineup, so they have quite a bit of catching up to do. The Streak, which was running Eclair when we last saw it, would be a great way to get into the game, especially if it comes early enough in 2010.
