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. Those looking for something truly portable may want to consider a smaller-screened smartphone instead.
Conclusion: It's hard not to love the Dell Streak unless you prefer smaller, voice-centric smartphones. It's not only a voice phone but a tablet with a 5" display that makes for a better Internet and multimedia experience than 4" and even 4.3" Android smartphones . Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Tab, it's pocketable, you can hold it to your head and make calls and you can use it as a phone (US Galaxy Tabs don't do cellular calls).
Pros: Elegant hardware, pocketable, good price with contract.
Cons: The AT&T version is still on Android 1.6 (soon to be updated to Froyo). The Unlocked version is available with Android 2.2 Froyo.
Excerpt: The Dell Streak is one of the first Tablet/Slate devices to be launch official capacity. It’s a lot smaller than your average tablet and a lot larger than your large touchscreen mobile phone. So the big question is, just where does it fit in? That’s a question I’d like to ask you. Here’s a closer look at the Streak from my perspective but I’d like to know if there are any existing users amongst you readers who would like to share their experiences and opinions on the...
Excerpt: The Dell Streak is very unusual in the sense that it has all the features of a tablet, but is similar in size to a smartphone. It has a five inch display and a 800 x 480 screen resolution. The screen is bigger than the iPhone 4 and bigger than the Android phones, HTC Evo 4G and Motorola Droid X.
Summary: The Dell Streak may look like a smartphone, and you can make phone calls on it, but the Android tablet's form factor means it's a hybrid device that sits somewhere between a largish touchscreen phone like the HTC Desire and Apple's iPad tablet.
