The other major weaknesses are the carrier and the fact that it's selling for 300 dollars with a 2-year contract. I honestly don't know much about AT&T's actual coverage, so I'll leave that alone (and God knows it's been beaten to death), but what I do know is that they'll lock this phone down, just like with the Backflip, which is sad.
I still really can't get over the price, though. It's not even any more expensive than most phones off-contract, so I don't understand why it's 300 with one.
I waited and waited and waited....then I gave up. Bought the Captivate on the 30th. I still have a few days to take it back I guess, but 1.6 seems like a BIG drawback.
I was starting to think the Dell Streak was being released at the same time as Duke Nukem Forever.
Best phones on the market are The Galaxy S lineup. Best Galaxy S phone is the Sprint Epic...so basically instead of everything being the "iphone killer" we now will need the "epic galaxy killer". This is not it...
[citation][nom]soldier37[/nom]About damn time Dell, this should have been out weeks ago. So glad they announced it finally and I do wear fatigues alot with big pockets at work. The big screen will suit me just fine. I've never had a problem with AT&T since 2003 I've had them before the bashing begins! Come Friday I can say intruly have the biggest baddest phone on my block![/citation]
How is it the baddest phone on the block with Android 1.6???? Biggest phone on the block yes. Personaly I will stick with my Evo and Android 2.2
There is no excuse for not coming with the latest version of the OS.
This is the problem with other cellphone manufacturers. Each one has a different version of the OS, they probably mess with parts of the OS too. I am not an apple fan and have never been, but at least when you get an iphone you know that all features of the OS will work, and all of the available apps will work too. You know that the phone will be supported. With other manufacturers you don't have any guarantees of how the phone will work, and you are guaranteed that they will support it only until they bring out their next model. I've been there with my Windows Mobile phone by Samsung, I'm not going there again.
Wish it had a higher resolution (1366x768 please), more internal storage (16 or 32GB), and two MicroSD slots.
I'm not a huge fan of capacitive touch, and would prefer the option for either capacitive or resistive (I'm in a cold country, I like gloves).
In a device that size however, I'd think they could fit a Intel CULV with 2GB RAM (then again, that would be a lot more expensive).
How about a better camera? Or are those who want a phone that takes decent pictures stuck with Sony?
While I do like the Dell Streak, I have no idea on how I'd carry it with me, and no way in hell am I wearing a man purse.
