Dell Streak Being Tested in the Wild for AT&T


I have to admit that I’m not the most knowledgeable on testing protocol and precedures for wireless carriers and manufacturers: the most I’ve seen is HTC’s series on the rugged testing process for the Google Nexus One. Thanks to one Seattle Times writerBrier Dudley – we’re able to catch a glimpse of how AT&T is testing the Dell Streak’s performance for handling e-911 services on the carrier.


The setup was quite intriguing: the engineer attached what looks like a yard-wide wooden plank to a high-end camera tripod. Four very slick Dell Streaks were evenly spread across the width of the plank. Everything was hooked up to a pair of laptops for monitoring network activity, errors, and log reports. It looks like AT&T is getting the final rungs in place to launch a (hopefully) error-clean device. Would this turn your head if you were walking down 2nd Avenue and saw the same setup?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
