Default cherry red dell streak - 04-12-2011, 10:44 PM

I had purchased the cherry red dell streak from the small and medium business site of dell. I already had the carbon black which works perfectly. I gave the carbon one to my wife and upon receiving the cherry red device, it had severe software problems, too many page redirects, data connection unknown code - 18 etc. Upon contacting dell I was then told to please return the cherry red and accept the carbon black that the cherry red has known software problems and will be constantly shown in production. Now I'm told its been removed from the site yet its still shows on the small and medium business site. Anyone here happen to have this cherry red device thats problem free??? I just could'nt understand that this device is a DELL device and if they can produce the carbon black problem free, then whats so different about the cherry red, its the same device just in red.

Red face Cherry Red Dell Streak - 04-13-2011, 05:57 AM

I don't have Cherry Red, as that colour isn't available in Australia.

But like you, I don't believe there can be any difference.

The guts of the device - regardless of colour casing would be exactly the same.

Probably some assembly tables at the factory in China would be given some red cases, to put the same electronics into.

I think the edges of movies, especially 4x3 format look more merged into the screen and the case, if the entire front is black.

I think red would make the 4x3 more apparent that it isn't full width screen.

But had white been available, I have to admit, I might have chosen it, as I have a white Cowon O2, which I like being white.

The Archos 5 is all shiny black, as though all one screen from side to side.
Described as "sexy", it is very sleek, even more so than the Streak.

The 'too many page redirects' was due to the first release of 2.2 if I remember correctly, it was fixed by another update a couple of weeks later.
