The demo units we tried out last night were running Android 2.2 Froyo. Suggested retail price of the Dell Streak 5 is Php27,000.
Announced early last year, the Dell Streak has been selling in the grey market for as high as Php35,000 for several months now. I wonder why it took them so long to bring it to the Philippines. I say better late than never.
