AT&T isn’t playing nice with Dell Streak Betas
August 2, 2010 | Google and Android | 3 Comments|
Engadget is reporting that AT&T is blocking the IMEIs of some Dell Streak Beta devices that were released for testing. Voice calls on blocked units get re-routed to AT&T customer service and data on AT&T’s network is shut off as well. It appears that at least one of the beta devices was not locked out of AT&T’s network. But something to be mindful of if you are considering buying one of these beta units off eBay.
Apple solves the problem by limiting the multitasking. Apple doesn’t multi task where it should. Android multitasks where it shouldn’t. Somewhere between the two is the right ansewr. You may not need dual core chips to do the job right.
