Dell wants to make the tablet a mainstay of the medical community and are pushing the Streak by incorporating their already established medical software into the device. The… Read more

Dell Streak 2.1 OTA pre-rooted

Some of you may still be recovering from the shock of Dell releasing the Aero, but try to take a deep breath, and remember that Dell does have some good stuff out there. Like for example the Dell Streak: 5″ screen, 1GHz processor, front facing camera…. Android 1.6. Oh yeah, that. Well it looks like today, that whole Donut problem the Streak has will… Read more

Dell Streak dismantled

Everyone loves a good tear down, and the more distinguished or popular the device, the better the breakdown.

Remember that brief slip where Dell took down their pre-order page and posed, in its place, a notice on straight purchases? I didn’t catch it, but Engadget did, and price tags were revealed.

Dell Streak to see 2.2 by year’s end, no T-Mo 3G [UPDATED]

UPDATE: Although the pre-sale page is back now, it was briefly down with a message about sales beginning tomorrow.
