Dell Streak 5 reaches end of the road

Dell has stopped selling their Streak 5 tablet/smartphone hybrid – I guess it was a little bit too large to be used as a smartphone on a comfortable basis, while it remained too small to offer a decent tablet experience. The Streak 5 was actually launched in 2010 as Dell’s first Android-powered device, sporting a generous 5″ touchscreen display at 800 x 480 resolution with the ability to make and […]


Dell Streak 7 runs on Honeycomb unofficially

So you own a Dell Streak 7 and have more or less done just about anything and everything you ever wanted on it, save for taking the unofficial route where the operating system is concerned. Fret not – you can now explore the naughtier and cheekier side of you with news of an unofficial Android Honeycomb build for the Streak 7 being released. Aptly called the HoneyStreak HD7, this is […]


Dell Streak hacked successfully, runs on Android 3.1 Honeycomb

Hats off to DJ_Steve from the XDA developers forum who has managed to successfully make Android 3.1 Honeycomb run on the Dell Streak – this is no mean task, considering the operating system was optimized for tablet use, making it a quantum leap of sorts from the Streak’s standard Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. Needless to say, the hack isn’t perfect – but it works. There are still a fair […]


Android 3.0 Honeycomb ported to the Dell Streak

Dell’s Streak is often referred to as a tablet instead of a phone, due to the large display. With that in mind, some folks decided that it would be good to give the device a tablet-friendly operating system and ported Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb to the 5-inch device. Since it’s an unofficial build, it shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that it’s still at an early stage and you won’t […]

Dell Streak 7 comes with hidden but non-working phone features?

There was always the nagging suspicion that tablet devices could come with built-in phone technology, although to talk on something so large is definitely socially awkward. Well, the Dell Streak 7 being an Android 2.2-powered tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, is actually a large smartphone device that can hook up via 3G and make phone calls, although there is no official support for phone functionality since it is […]


Dell Streak 10 shown at CES

[CES 2010] During its CES Press conference, Dell has announced the development of a 10” Tablet, the Dell Streak 10. At the moment, it is a “lab” product, but Dell has a history of bringing products out of the lab once they have been shown in public. The Adamo was once a concept and made it as a product fairly rapidly. Dell didn’t provide much details about the Streak 10, […]


Dell Streak 7 Hands-On

[CES 2011] T-Mobile and Dell have announced the Streak 7, a larger Android Tablet based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 system on a chip. We got our hands on the tablet, and we can tell you that the extra 2-inch do make a big difference in terms of perceived size (in a good way). As a percentage of size growth, 2″ out of 5″ is significant. The tablet has a clean […]


Dell Streak pricing drops in the US

If you’ve been looking out for the Dell Streak for some time already, then you will be pleased as punch to have refrained yourself from making a purchase simply because Dell has just dropped the pricing for its Streak device in the US – presumably to drive sales figures up. The unlocked models are now cheaper by $180, touching a new low of $400, while Android-powered models from AT&T will […]


Best Buy offers $99.99 Dell Streak

Best Buy is offering the Dell Streak for $99.99, where it will be accompanied by a 2-year service contract from AT&T to boot. Of course, current owners might not be too pleased that the Android 2.2 Froyo update isn’t available to date until January 2011, but […]

Doctors To Use Dell Streak Tablets To Assist Them

Dell has confirmed that it plans to integrate its new Streak tablet with its established healthcare software, making it easier for doctors to access patient information and electronic medical records as they go about their work.

Dell will open source Streak code

Dell has promised to open source its Streak code, where Dell’s official blogger Lionel Menchaca stressed that the Texas-based company will adapt to “all applicable requirements” in due time. This would fit in perfectly with the GNU Public License (GPL) of Android 1.6 that sees action in the Dell Streak, considering it is based on a Linux kernel and by law requires it to be open-source. There is no deadline […]
