Hi guys I also had great reservations on purchasing an android phone after owning an iphone for a few years. Now I Have purchased a dell streak and I'm impressed. Even with 1.6 it runs really well. Dell have made a great product I believe. Just a pleasure to use and the screan is glorious. There is so much more scope with android and the streak. Week 1. ( honeymoon period )

I've had my Dell Streak ever since Dell (direct) sold them in the UK. I'm still running 1.6 and I'm extremely pleased with it. I'm so glad I didn't get an HTC Desire - the larger screen on the Dell just makes it sooooo much better for web browsing, emails etc.
Initially, it was buggy. But the last Dell patch and possibly updates for my installed apps have now made the Streak as reliable as my previous Nokia E71. Putting a piece of folded paper between the battery and lid has made a big impact on the reliability too as this stops it turning off when knocked. It's now pretty much perfect. The only thing I could complain about if the method of answering incoming calls, but once you know how to work around the design flaw, then it's fine. The next Android upgrade should sort that anyway.
I would never want anything less than a 5" screen again. I may even go for a 7" device next time! Or a 5" device with a slide out keyboard, if one ever appears in the future.
Streak supplied 8 July 2010, direct from Dell.co.uk

Ive had one since 1.6. To be fair, the device works almost perfectly under 1.6..Am shot away with the performance of the device under 2.2. I think companys have underestimated how fast Android Developement would move and how much adding their own tweaks would cost them in terms of getting the latest version to Market.
I love the damn thing. Good for movies, comics, music, haxxoring about with, tv, t`internet, gps, etc etc et bloody cetera. Win despite Dell.
