According to Engadget, the 5" Dell Streak is pulling a disappearing act from Dell's online and retail stores but will be back on shelves by August. A customer service rep told Engadget that the phone hasn't been discontinued, but just requires an update that is not Android-related. Dell's PR team has not provided any more details on the Streak's absence because "Dell does not comment on rumors, speculation, or unannounced products."

When I tried to order the same phone from Dell's website, I received the following message:

Sorry, but this item is no longer available for purchase online. Please contact your sales representative for details on how to order.

Whatever this "update" is, it's certainly critical enough for Dell to stop selling the device and be so tight-lipped about the issue. For those of you who have a Streak, do you have any insights on what Dell could possibly be fixing? Please share with us in the comments below.
