It’s July 14th . . . do you know where your Dell Streak is?
One of the first specific-date rumors we heard about the US release of the Dell Streak was that it would be coming out on July 14th.
I'm in Hawaii, the last state in the country to see a new day, and the silence from Dell is as deafening today as it's been for months. We don't observe daylight savings here, so we're currently 6 hours behind the East Coast, meaning July 14th is already one-fourth over in some parts of the US.
While it's still possible that Dell could stun us all and announce the Streak later today (probably when I'm sleeping), I'd say there's about a 0.000001% chance of that happening. Dell and AT&T representatives, the ones who first put today's date in people's minds, are now telling inquiring customers that the Streak will be released at the end of July, which is exactly when Dell said it would be at last month's D8 conference.
In related news, anyone getting a Samsung Captivate this weekend? That seems to be the device that many are thinking of leaving the Streak for and if Dell maintains its silence through this Sunday (when the Captivate goes on sale), I'm guessing that we'll be saying goodbye to some of you soon. I'll be getting a Captivate the day it goes on sale (assuming it's available when I get there) and will do some comparisons for anyone on the fence.
