It was much awaited phone and yesterday I bought it in New Delhi (Rohini Sector-3), India. It looked promising to me because I was looking for a big screen phone that is smaller than tablet and easy to fit in pocket. Being a web developer, I needed a tablet cum phone and Dell Streak suites my profession. Now I wont have to carry my laptop everywhere and I can perform website update, chat, email, browsing and related internet activities using my Dell Streak. Previously I tried, Blackberry, Nokia E series and also tested Nokia 8. I also looked at Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Tablets (S series, now available in India), but Dell Streak suited best for my job. It is very thin, and very light to carry. It is a little bigger than your normal mobile phones, but it can easily fit in pocket (your trouser or shirt). The look is great, comes in two colors, Red and Black. The good thing like about Dell Streak is, the Android platform is very very user friendly. You can learn Here are some pictures of my new Dell Streak. I am trying to explain few functionalities of Dell Streak here. My default home screen looks like this (it has 5 screen):
My Second screen, I use it for Internet activities (like chat, mail, IM, Facebook)
Backside view of Dell Streak:
Side view of Dell Streak. Left button is for Camera, and then second button is for screen on/off (sleep/wakeup mode) and then third button if to adjust volume.
When you press screen on/off button, your screen looks like this.
If you want to connect to WI FI, GPRS or Blutooth, you just touch the above bar (in which you see green color battery), when you touch Wi-Fi, it will search for the available Wi-Fi connections and connect. The operations are very very user friendly, far better than Nokia.
When you connect the USB cable from your PC to Dell Streak, the screen will look like this. It will ask for charge only, and other two options to manage your files.
Once you select an option, the screen will look like this. It will show how much battery is charged.
Installed applications (by default):
By default 5 home screens (manage view):
