Summary: The Dell Streak is the first Android tablet worth taking seriously, though its size puts it on the fence between tablets and smartphones.
Pros: The Dell Streak offers an unprecedented combination of processor power, screen size, and design quality. Support for 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth hit all the wireless sweet spots, while photo, camcorder, and calling capabilities blur the boundaries between tablet and phone.
Cons: Battery life isn't great, the touch-screen keyboard is awkward, music quality is below average, and the position of the camera tends to cloud photos and video.
Summary: When compared to competing smart phones, the larger-than-life Dell Streak comes up a little short. It's not as fast as devices that run the latest 2.1 software (and 2.2 is just around the corner). As for the bigger screen, it truly is gorgeous, but the 5-inch display only enhances reading comfort and not sharpness because you get the same resolution--or less--than 4.3-inch Android phones.
Excerpt: In the world of convergence, there's a natural barrier between smartphones and larger devices such as tablet PCs or personal media players (PMPs). The jury is out on how small a device can be for videos, e-books and web pages to be enjoyable to watch or read. The Dell Streak tests the limits of that barrier with its 5in 800x480 display; in all other respects, it's technically just another Android smartphone.
