Dell Streak

 

Is Dell's 5-inch Android smartphone come tablet a jack of all trades and a master of none?

Dell Streak review

 

The Streak is back with Android 2.2 and a whole host of new features such as stages, but can it finally start climbing the ladder towards smartphone perfection and tablet excellence, T3 puts the hybrid through its paces.

New home screen widgets ; Flash compatibility

Swype operation ; Still-slightly-high price tag

Dell Streak

 

Neither here nor there in terms of size, the 5in Streak from Dell isn't as sharp or as punchy as its leading rivals

Big screen for the price ; decent enough pictures ; fair spec

Big verging on clunky ; vision and especially sound can be bettered

Too big to be a pocket-friendly phone and too small to be branded a tablet, the Android-powered Dell Streak is a gadget conundrum

Awesome for web browsing and handling multimedia but this over-sized touchphone might struggle to find an audience

Dell Streak review

 

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...

The Streak's size will divide opinion, but its battery life and interface improvements are great; however until Dell updates to at least Android 2.1, we can't recommend it

Dell Streak Review

 

Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? No, it's the Dell Streak and it's kind of a bit of both. Dell's answer to the iPad can make calls as well as offering a nice big 5-inch screen; read on to see how well…

Dell Streak review

 

The Dell Streak is the first of a promised list of tablet-smartphone hybrid devices from some of the biggest names in the PC industry. Larger than an iPhone and with a similar look to a BlackBerry Storm, the 10mm-thick Dell Streak has a 5in capacitive...

The Dell Streak is a far more successful device than the hybrid smartphone/tablet concept promises. With built-in 3G and a lovely screen, it’s excellent for web browsing and email use and a highly desirable media player. Just watch the battery...

Dell Streak 2.2 review -

 

New widgets and user-friendly setup with Dell?s Stage UI, Google Navigation, camera produces clear snaps, Swype keyboard for faster, fluid typing

No smart dialling, slight lag in touch-screen, five-inch screen makes it too big as a phone but a touch too small as a tablet

Dell - Streak

 

When Dell originally launched its Streak Android-based tablet last summer it looked very promising. The trouble was that it ran Android 1.6 which, even at that time, had already been superseded by Android 2.1. That fact ...

We really like the Dell Streak. It has a superb physical design and thoughtful skinning of Android to its credit. However, it is expensive - and its size is both its main attraction, and its biggest problem. Too large to function as your everyday...

Dell Streak Review with Android 2.1

 

Last month we got hold of the Dell Streak from Clove.co.uk , it was previously available on-contract from O2, but now it can be bought as a sim-free option for us all to enjoy.
