Dell Streak not being released this week, pricing apparently not official

Streak-tweets-727For crying out loud, Dell. Get your act together!

Despite what was posted this morning on the Direct2Dell website about the Streak pre-sale, MattatDell insists via Twitter (the company's only means of releasing information, I guess) that the Streak is not being released this week and that there were no official announcements made today.

The offending blog post has been pulled and the original pre-sale sign-up is back up, so while it's clear that Dell wants us all to pretend that we didn't see anything, it's still ridiculous that they're acting like a start-up company who has never launched a product before.

I also find MattatDell's tweets on the matter really annoying. The pre-sale sign-up being temporarily replaced with the message about being able to order the Streak tomorrow is being blamed on a "Dell snafu" that happened when "testing [their] mobility page." Surely there's a better way to test a page than with information that you don't want people to know about and spread across the internet, Dell. As for the tweet about there being no official announcements "despite blogs, rumors, etc.," has MattatDell forgotten that the source of said blogs and rumors was none other than Dell's own blog (screenshot below for those who missed it the first time)?
