Pros There are no pros which would induce me to purchase this product.
Cons The 800×480 pixels display is horrendous.
Summary Why is Dell even trying to sell this product. It doesn't come close to tablets already on the market. Go back to the drawing boards Dell.
And Mr. Bell, how can you say, "It's a device that's worthy of the company." unless you think Dell is a worthless company, bereft of any intelligence whatsoever.

Pros screen size
Cons on repair since i bought it
Summary Bought the Dell Streak about four months ago and since then it has been a constant to and fro to the Dell Technical Support (principal problem : the screen will not light up after pressing the on button....you have to take out the battery and press it again to make the Streak switch on).
I have hardly used the telephone.
About a week ago, the screen of the Streak has shattered (so much for Gorilla Glass Corning !) because I had kept it my jean back pocket and was unable to stand the pressure.
Dell Support refuses to take this into guaranty.
I have lost more than 400 euros on this piece of junk.
Pros The size is good, larger than a phone smaller than the10 in. ipad. When it's working, it's not a bad little pad.
Cons It doesn't always work!
No cut and paste capability, or at least not on the one I have.
I agree with the other reviews the battery life is very short.
No USB connectors.
Not compatible with vista.
Summary Dell is very aware that the Dell Streak 7 doesn't work with the vista operating system, yet there is no discloser about this on any of their advertising, website, or packaging. I bought mine from T-Mobile; no one at T-Mobile disclosed this fact. After having the device for just over a month I decided I wanted to transfer some files and music between my dell streak 7 and my home pc. That's when I found out, from Dell Support that it's not possible, "they are aware of the problem" and "there is no projected date that this might be fixed". I was told to get a SD card to transfer between the dell streak 7 and my computer . I bought a SD card placed it in my dell streak 7 and the information will not load on it. Dell has offered to fix my NEW device after I have spent 2 weeks, 6 dell customer representatives, 9 phone calls lasting a total of 21 hours and 23 minutes, trying to get some kind of resolution . The half star rating is because this website requires something and I couldn't find the -(minus)star option. As of now I have a non working device and all Dell can say is "Ooppps!"
Pros The best little unit so far
Cons Battery doesn't last as long, but I just bought a car charger and leave or plugged in when iam at home so it works.
Summary It fits in my hands very well. I had both the samsung and ipad.The ipad was to big and the samsung kept flipping out on me. I switched and very pleased with it. Unless you are just a mad dash person you gotta have what everyone else had than get the ipad. Don't go for samsung they chip way to easy and crash alot. If you are just a modest person looking for something entering than this is the device for you. I hardly spend money on gadgets but this is one iam keeping.
Pros Dell computers are good but tablets rubbish it crash completely no one can fix it
Cons Very bad support for streak
Summary Dont waist your money
