Dell Streak Pro 101DL, GS01 released on SoftBank and eMobile, respectively

Today, Dell released the Streak Pro 101DL and the Streak Pro GS01 on Japanese carriers SoftBank and eMobile, respectively. These two devices have been in the works for a while and they're finally ready for consumer consumption. 

You're probably not thinking much about this. After all, these devices don't mean much to you if you live outside of Japan. But even if you won't be picking one up or importing one to where you live, these Streaks do have qutie a bit of meaning for the rest of the world. Last week, Dell announced that it would be turning away from its consumer products to focus on IT products and services – and when you add that fact to the underwhelming popularity of the Streak line, you get an outcome that isn't favorable: no more Streaks.

There's always the chance for me to be wrong, of course, and I really hope I am. I still love my Streak 7 and I'm sure you all love your Streak(s), too. I know most of you aren't willing to give Dell another shot, but if you're interested in these devices, hit up the source links to see if they're worth importing; after that, let us know if you got one!

[SoftBank | eMobile] Thanks, TheManii!

    After 17 months, My Dell Streak 5 is rock solid. I have even dropped it.
    I would totally buy another Dell product!
    Having a hard time finding a new device to “upgrade” to right now.
    Software is not always dependent on the OEM.
    Peace

    I ran DJ_Steve’s 2.4.4 GingerStreak and am now running the Korean (Olleh) Dell GB build (350), and I still really like my Streak 5. With mobility itself contributing significantly to enterprise infrastructure to support it, I find it difficult to believe Dell will back away from this space. I too hoped to see something at CES or MWC, but we’ll see what the rest of ’12 produces. Don’t lose faith, Calob!

  • I have a 1.6 Dell Streak still. I haven’t updated this one. I had a streak at one point that I did update and everything went haywire and of course I freaked because I love my phone. So I sent it in, got this one back and haven’t done anything else to it. Since then I have gotten 2 more streak 5’s that I keep just in case something happens to this one, and a streak 7, that’s still in the box, because I found I didn’t need it as much as I thought I would, since I have my streak 5..
    Anyway, I have looked around here and have seen talk about updates and not sure where to start with doing anything to my phone. I love it like it is but of course if there’s things to make it better, i’m willing. Also, I will be moving to Japan in September, and wonder if anyone knows if these phones will work there?

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! =)
