The Dell Streak's onscreen keyboard is relatively quick and responsive, thanks in part to the capacitive touch screen and 1GHz Snapdragon processor. One unique aspect of the keyboard design that we both love and hate is the addition of a numeric keypad off to the right side of the QWERTY keyboard. Direct access to typing out numbers is great, but the off-center QWERTY takes some adjusting to.
A removable slide-out plate on the back of the Dell Streak offers access to a replaceable battery (take that, iPad!), SIM card, and MicroSD memory slot. The Streak model we received included a 16GB SanDisk MicroSD card installed. A 5-megapixel camera with flash and autofocus is also found on the back.
The Streak's size fits midway between an iPod Touch/iPhone (left) and the 10-inch screen of an Apple iPad. It feels a little too big to hold like a phone, but a little too small to browse the Web without a lot of zooming and adjusting.
