Summary: The Dell Streak is certainly an interesting device to say the least. Its unique size and design makes it a contender in the market, as it stands out above the rest of the smartphones on the shelves. I’m certainly looking forward to the Android 2.1 (or 2.2?

Excerpt: Times certainly are changing. Devices that can boast a larger screen are becoming the current fad. By increasing screen sizes manufacturers hope to fortify users’ ability to multitask and become even more efficient by maximizing usability.

Conclusion: Until we get foldable displays we’re going to see smartphone manufacturers experiment with larger screen sizes. While no one likes to carry around a giant phone, the benefits of a bigger screen are undeniable.
Conclusion: The Dell Streak is great for web browsing, watching videos and social networking but its size means that it won’t necessarily fit into a pocket and will prove a bit of a handful for some. This is accentuated by the homescreen view being locked to landscape forcing to you hold it in two hands.
