If you do not like the idea of being tied down to a single network and happen to live in the UK, then you might be interested in word of the Dell Streak being available as an unlocked device in that part of the world. Of course, you will need to fork out another £50 to remain unshackled from O2′s contract, but for those who are into dollars and cents, the £449 price point is still lower than the 16GB iPhone 4 unlocked and ought to prove to be an extremely tempting proposition to interested parties. For those who are willing to wait it out, the Dell Streak should be going for around $500 unlocked Stateside from next month onwards, proving yet again that patience is a virtue. and should prove mighty tempting. Then again, if you wait until next month, you might be able to import one from the good old US of A, where Dell will be selling the unlocked Streak at a thrifty $500. It all depends on what you have more of, money or patience.
