Dell discontinues the 5 inch Streak tablet
Dell has stopped selling the Dell Streak 5 inch Android tablet/smartphone. The original Streak launched last year as Dell’s first Android product. It blurred the lines between a tablet and a phone by pairing a reasonably large 5 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display with cellular capabilities.
The device hasn’t been in stock at Dell.com for a while, and now the company has posted a page saying goodbye to the Streak and suggesting other devices you might be interested in including the Dell Streak 7 Android tablet, Dell Venue Android phone, or Venue Pro Windows Phone 7 device.
As smartphone displays get larger and larger, the Streak doesn’t look as unusual today as it did when it launched, and while Dell always positioned the device as a tablet that could make phone calls, today it looks more like a bulky phone.
