Excerpt: I really liked it as a phone but towards the end of using it, after updating it, the phone began to crash a lot and the keyboard would type random letters. Also, it would never let me update to gingerbread so I was stuck with froyo.
A good phone/tablet not without it's flaws but great for anyone with big hands or poor eyesight

Excerpt: + is for my edits ============ The Dell Streak, a 5inch screened behemoth that feels too large to be a phone and too small to be a tablet (although on the packaging it is stated as a "tablet") Ahhhh schizophrenic gadgets!
Summary: I had the DS since it was released...loved it from the start. However 3 months in I had to send it back cos the OS stopped working. Upto that point it would never upgrade. It began to reset itself and then finally bricked. Since O2 replaced it, I have up graded to 2.2.
Pros: It does so many things well, sat nav, Sonos hand control, web browsing, email.
Summary: I am looking to upgrade to this phone tablet type thing soon I will mostly be using the web watching movies etc while commuting. I am reluctant to buy an iphone/pad. is it worth signing up to a contract for 2 years for this bit of kit any opinions welcome
Excerpt: I purchased the Dell Streak as a upgrade thru O2. I did have a few problems with it in the beginning ie: the battery cover was not connecting correctly and was causing the phone to reboot every time i put it down.
