HITTING A SWEET SPOT
The Dell Streak, a carbon black Android-based tablet with a 5-inch display, is designed to provide an excellent “on-the-go” entertainment, social connection, and navigation experience. The spacious 5-inch screen is ideal for experiencing thousands of Android Market widgets, games and applications, all without squinting or compromising portability. Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth capability and available 3G connectivity brings easy access for downloading and listening to music, updating social networking status in real-time, and staying connected to friends and family through e-mail, text, IM, and voice calls.

On-the-go students, mobile professionals, and active families will find Streak’s web-browsing capabilities as natural as a laptop. The 5-inch screen is large enough to present Web pages in their natural form, create a comfortable viewing experience, and make turn-by-turn navigation simple. The Dell Streak is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon solution with integrated 1GHz processor to combine basic functionality and benefits of a laptop in a pocket friendly size.   

The Dell Streak was designed with the future in mind to support future software, application and platform upgrades.

  1. So Doug,,,,,, are you going to tell your wife about a new purchase, or is this one of those times you send her to Florida for being such a wonderful wife and mother. Then buy the new Streak and hope that, buy the time she gets home, your warranty period is up and you can’t return it???????

  2. I am in the Dog House big time already. Dougy needs to be a good boy. :(

    I am beating on our Dell contact for a Review Unit, keep your fingers crossed unless I sell off all my old stuff. (Tilt, Fuze, Tilt 2, gulp….Telstra HD2)

  3. Don’t get rid of the Telstra…i was fortunate enough to find one here in Louisiana…its the best device ive seen hands down!

  4. This may double post, my apologies if it does

    This may be the perfect time to buy one then, if you are already on her no fly zone, you fall into DavidK’s Android graph. What can she do wit hold something you are already not getting.

    DISCLAIMER: My wife has already left so my advice may be a little slanted.

  5. I’m gonna sit on the fence on this for a couple of reason. A. It’s something new from Dell LOL. B. I’d rather wait until it gets Droid 2.2, which, according to dell will be “before the end of the year”. C. It’s at&t, so it might affect B.
    I’m not “due” for an upgrade til November anyway, and my trusty little hacked TP2 is trudging along with a custom rom, and overclocked to 652mhz anyway, so the wait will
    let any “bugs” to be fixed.

  6. Great article! Look at the title.Someone had prime rib on their brain.Steak/Streak both look pretty good.
