In August, KitGuru reviewed the Dell Streak and we thought it was one of the most exciting phones on the market. It was a dream combination of an iPad and a smartphone. The only downside was the early state of the Android operating system which meant it didn’t quite walk away with our top award. Dell informed me a few weeks ago that the new Android Froyo 2.2 OS was now available and that they wanted KitGuru to follow up on the previous review by taking another look at the device.
The Streak hasn’t been quite the success story that I had imagined it would be for Dell in August. I was genuinely smitten with the smartphone. The Streak combined fantastic battery life, a solid feature set and fast interface with one of the highest quality smartphone screens I had seen. Sadly, when I sent the Streak back to Dell my Apple iPhone lost much of its appeal. The only thing actually stopping me from buying one at the time was the operating system. It wasn’t ‘bad’, but I felt it was still very much in the early stages of development.
Four months later could this possibly now be the greatest smartphone on the market?
