Re: Dell Streak

Too bad it is overpriced.  I will wait to see if the price drops and how soon it upgrades to Android 2.1 or 2.2.

Re: Dell Streak

I'm with ya there, especially with some of the ratings give it dropped calls and prro performance with the 1.6

Re: Dell Streak

I want a red one with 2.2. I am on the pre-order email list - but I'm just going to enjoy my iPhone 4 until the Streak meets my wants! They just took too long to release the thing. If it had come out a month earlier I would have been all over it.

Re: Dell Streak

Lol "yes" 1.6 even sounds un-attractive especially with the Samsung Galaxy Tablet possibly coming next month with a 7 inch screen and phone capable.

Re: Dell Streak

Dell may get the award for fail of the year on this one.  I have not seen one review that paints the Streak in a positive light

 

The complaints are all the same:

 

Price - It costs too much with and without a contract.

Android 1.6 - The OS is over a year old.  Should be running on something newer.

AT&T - People at least think that it should also be running on T-Mobile.

 

Also it appears that this phone won't be in any AT&T stores.  This is the type of device you need to hold in your hands before you buy.

Re: Dell Streak

You summed that up in a nutshell..

 

I'm seeing a pattern in these releases lately. I'm pretty sure that the release was delayed to ensure the everyone who got the captivate was past 30 days so if they want this over priced outdated phone/tablet they would have to shell out $550

Re: Dell Streak

Yeah, I was considering the Streak, but the price is way too high, not sure if/when it will upgrade. I've also read a review and other mentions about speaker/phone quality. And yeah, if I can't try something this big & expensive before I buy, then no way!

Re: Dell Streak

Wont be coming to ATT anyways....so much for all the excitement. Though it does make me wonder. They sell it ONLY locked and for ATT (the T-mobile version Dell had promised seems to have vanished or was cancelled), yet refuse to sell it in stores or directly. It's as though they want it to fail......

Re: Dell Streak

You would think they would have learned not to direct sell based on what happened with the Nexus One.

I think I'll wait and see what happens with the Dell Thunder.

Re: Dell Streak

The Thunder looks promising, based on what little is "known". Even so, good question as to whether it will come to ATT and if so, soon enough to matter based on current phones at the time.
