Summary This tablet is very snappy. On STOCK OS with no mods, it benchmarked at 1950++. My EVO, also @ 1 GHz benchmarked at 1250 and later 1550 once rooted and overclocked on a custom ROM. Quadrant Benchmark test is not made for Dual Core processors. Android 2.2 is not made for Dual Core processors or tablets. I doubt either of the previously mentioned are made for an ASYNCHRONOUS CPU!Edit Link
Speed is excellent. Battery life is not the greatest, but once a custom ROM is put on it with 2.3 or higher, it will be much better. It takes a FULL SD card. I don't know why "micro sd" was noted above, but technically it can take those as well. (Who would want to use slower micro when you have full)
Video recording is awesome as well. Great sound and quality. Video chat on the 3G network was NOWHERE NEAR as choppy as my test June 2010 on Sprint with my friend's HTC EVO and mine.
Already looked up and compared the upcoming HTC Flyer and was not happy with the fact it didn't seem to have flash on the camera and Gorilla glass wasn't mentioned- 2 HUGE selling points for me. VERY STURDY as DELL products are- compared to the flimsy quality of SAMSUNG.
Dell stage is nice, but I'm not one for software already "customized," and every widget does take from battery life. WIFI Tethering is built in, so rooting it currently has few advantages. I'm not sure if ADW launcher or the rooting procedure did, but it would no longer save any data or even do a master clear.
10" tablets are ludicrous and you can't type on them. I can lie down and hold this with one hand without it falling on me.

Pros Unlike tablets from Amazon, Archos and Barnes & Noble, this Android tablet actually CAN run apps from Android Market (although certain items - HBO Go and ZDBox among them - do not appear when searching with it). And considering how few of the Amazon d
Cons It's called "Streak."
Now WiFi only (Dell will provide a free unlock for T-Mobile owners).
Like the Android it is, it sometimes needs a power-off/on, or even an emergency-button restart.
The proprietary power supply plug being at the bottom of
Summary GET ONE WHILE YOU CAN! With a street price $249-299, it's more than competitive - it's COMPATIBLE.
Pros -Form factor
-General UI Navigation performance
-Potentially updated to 3.0
Cons -Almost nothing done to UI to take advantage of tablet screen size
-Battery Life = AWFUL
-Almost forces you to use it landscape
-Everything about it except the processor is old tech, not modern tech
Summary Its a good tablet, but since you can get a Samsung Tab or iPad for not much more, it's not really on the top of lists. It doesn't bring anything to the table the iPad or the Tab already brought, and the features it did bring fail to live up to the height of the Tab and iPad.
However, focusing on JUST the Dell Streak, not a comparison, the Streak does pretty much everything a tablet advertises it can do. It has a great web experience, pretty nice cameras, smooth interface transitions, etc. The only real downfall of the tablet itself is the battery life, which needs to be at least doubled in my opinion.
All in all, if the Streak was $100 less, it would be a strong compeitor in the lower market, along with the Archos. But as it is (seemingly, as price is high) trying to take on the big dogs, I would not recommend this tablet over either the Galaxy Tab or iPad.
Pros Dual core, lots of storage, tons of apps, perfect size and a great prize.
Cons Not sure what it would be. Most of the negative reviews I read about the Streak 7 were just nonsense. I realized that once I owned one.
Summary I was able to get 2 wifi only streaks from dell for $199 apiece during a sale, and I bought them on the assumption they'd be getting Honeycomb. I really didn't do anything with the tablets prior to the update. Once it was announced I updated both and get them all set up. I went back and read several reviews of the Streak and compared them to my own experiences and for the most part it showed me just how little many reviewers are paid to do so know. I have to assume that they either have a bias against some manufacturers or it's a case of money, but I will say right now, many reviews will factually inaccurate. These tablets are a great value and do everything you could ever want. And now with Honeycomb it's on par with any tablet on the market.
Pros It is currently one of the only devices that will allow Android users to make a phone call.
Cons short falls result in cracks in the LCD that lies below the gorilla glass. Dell will not repair it & considers the damage "out of warranty" They will charge you more than the device is worth to replace it. Dell support will not return your calls.
Summary No matter what you like about this device, once the screen starts to crack and bleed the entire device becomes totally unusable. It is a touch screen after all. The desktop software they tried to deploy with these was so bad they just stopped supporting it altogether. No more desktop backup. Dell is not the company it used to be. Support for this device will be one piece of misinformation after another. Sales staff are American based. Once they have your money all types of support calls will likely be routed to foreign call centers that are not at all happy to hear from you. They are consistently missing upgrade dates for their Android versions. This would not be a problem if they ever released the latest versions of Android. Currently their competitor devices are using Honeycomb, while Dell is stuck on Froyo for this device while their Mini 5 is still stuck on the Donut.Sorry The Dell Streak Mini 5 makes calls. This device does not make phone calls.
