Default Dell Streak Unboxing Video - 06-04-2010, 03:29 PM

I've just uploaded a video of me unboxing my new Dell Streak. You can see the snazzy box and all it's contents.


It takes ages to start up the first time, hence the pause! I'll make more content and videos on the Dell Streak after I've had a play over the weekend


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

so lucky to be living in the UK =P

looking forward to it hitting the US shores in July. Hopefully AT&T will actually subsidize this (unlike the iPad)

Even if they don't subsidize this, I've heard rumors of this retailing for around $400-500 USD. I'd pay something like that for one of these things, if that meant not renewing my contract (I'm grandfathered into the unlimited $30/month iPhone data plan , so I just have to swap SIM cards).


Sold my Mini 9 for a larger netbook, one that's easier on my wrists and hands.

And I play with my girlfriend's Mini 10v ^_^.

Interested in using MATLAB on the Mini 10v? Check out my benchmarks!

Yeah they're definitely going to be sold unsubsidized (like I imagine Dunhamzzz's was since he said he didn't buy through O2) on dell's website, but I'd rather keep the price down to under $200 and use my upgrade credit through AT&T (if I can). If not, guess I'll put down the cash to buy the new iPhone and actually use that credit and sell it.

I guess I must be the only one not hot and bothered by AT&T's new data plans for smartphones. I guess I'm a little on the spoiled side when it comes to wifi access though, being a student and working in IT. No one in my family has yet to use more than 200MB a month, so even 2 GB seems like plenty and would still save me some money at $25 + 15% corporate discount.

Fair enough. I certainly used to feel exactly the same way. But after living with android phones and iPhones for close to a year now, I've gotten pretty used to their extreme mobility and usefulness. I have wifi access at 95% of the places I go to, but for those rare moments where I don't, the usefulness of a smartphone starts to make sense. If I'm out for dinner, and want to check movie times, a phone is the perfect tool to look up movie times nearby instead of driving all the way home or calling someone to look up the times for me.

The extra $15 (soon) a month or so is worth it for the provided convenience and mobility (even if this thing is big, it can still fit in a guy's pocket or jacket) that even the minis can't provide us with

I think it's a promising form factor, and this device doesn't have any direct competitors as yet. It is between a phone and a small tablet like an iPad. Apple's device is too big so you can't fit it in your pocket, therefore you may as well just carry a netbook which is much more powerful and capable and convenient. And a phone is often just too small. This device pushes the limit of what you can put in your pocket, and that's great!

02 in the UK is a negative though, for a device which is reliant of data connections for its primary purpose, and 02's network isn't exactly reliable...
