The Dell Streak 5 is truly one of the most distinctive products on the market as it manages a near-perfect synthesis of tablet PC and smartphone. With just a 5” screen, the Dell Streak 5 can be literally used as a cell phone, with user holding the device right to his/her ear. Of course, the convenient small size is the most notable feature of the Streak 5. What’s amazing is the tablet’s trimness although outfitted with SIM card and micro SD/SDHC in addition to a decent enough 5 megapixel camera.
The Android 2.2 operating system is installed, completely appropriately for the tablet/phone and Dell’s 1GHz microprocessor runs things smoothly and quickly. The capacitive 800x480 pixel touchscreen of the Dell Streak 5 is certainly the smallest widely available among tablets and it is nicely responsive, and just as the user might expect, however, icons at times appear very small indeed.
Some interesting proprietary software is installed on the Dell Streak 5, among them a Dell Studio music gallery widget and the Dell music player. In fact, after video calling, listening to music is definitely the high point of the Dell Streak 5. A nice touch comes in the user’s ability to choose from seven home screens.
