The Good The Dell Streak offers an unprecedented combination of processor power, screen size, and design quality. Support for 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth hit all the wireless sweet spots, while photo, camcorder, and calling capabilities blur the boundaries between tablet and phone.
The Bad Battery life isn't great, the touch-screen keyboard is awkward, music quality is below average, and the position of the camera tends to cloud photos and video.
The Bottom Line The Dell Streak is the first Android tablet worth taking seriously, though its size puts it on the fence between tablets and smartphones.
Dell Streak 16GB
Editors' note: Dell has released afor T-Mobile, one that is compatible with 4G wireless speeds. It has also pushed out an over-the-air update for the Streak's operating system, bringing the device up to Android 2.2 (Froyo) from 1.6 (Donut) and enabling support for Adobe Flash, Microsoft Exchange, and Swype text input. Still, given the change in the competitive landscape since our original review, we have lowered the rating of this product to better reflect its value.
