Dell Streak

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

Calling the Dell Streak an "Android Phone" is entering a grey area - with a massive 5-inch screen the device is practically a tablet but it hauls cellular connectivity that make "phone" a perfectly acceptable categorization. By all accounts the Streak LOOKS like a fabulous piece of multimedia hardware, but because of its size, potential buyers should first think about if it fits their lifestyle/needs.

Some more specs on the Dell Streak include the Capacitive 5-inch display  with multi-touch support, made with Gorilla Glass, a tough and resistant screen as featured on the Motorola Droid. It has a rear 5 MP camera with Dual LED flash and a front VGA camera meaning you can video call!
