White Dell Streak headed to Best Buy next month


If you've been keeping tabs on the Dell Streak since the then-unnamed device was leaked on a Vietnamese forum back in October 2009 (yes, one whole year ago), then you may remember that it had a glossy white finish at the time. A white version wasn't included in the April 2010 leak that revealed all the (vaporware) color and custom design options, though, so its existence seemed to have been forgotten. Since the actual release of the Streak over the summer, US customers have only been asking about the red finish, especially since it's available in other countries, but no one even mentions the white one.

Well, according to an anonymous tip I just received about some internal documents being distributed today at Best Buy, that's about to change. Next month, the store is expected to be the exclusive seller of . . . wait for it . . . a white Dell Streak.

Best Buy has similar exclusives with other phones (e.g., white HTC EVO 4G), so it's not too surprising that the store managed to secure the white Streak too.



I assume the price will be the same ($299.99 w/contract, $549.99 w/o contract) and that the device will look exactly as shown in these photos from last year, but we'll have to wait until next month to know for sure.
