That's a shame.Dell should release a successor to the Streak however this time shrink the phone while keeping the same 5" display.Incorporate the latest specs and voila! A sure fire contender.

To be honest, even without good marketing for the phone, it sold rather well. I just wish that Dell had advertised it heavily, then it would've been a great choice, but from what i hear from a former owner, that is was "buggy and slow", I would've resolved to some awesome roms for this big sucker. It was my intention to get this phone, but it took to long to release and I went for the Captivate, but not long after I got the Dell Streak 7 with T-Mobile, and what's worse it that the Streak 7 with T-Mobile won't get HC.

So if there is a morale to this it's; YOU SUCK DELL! You're mobile products have the chance to be something great, and you drop the ball, pick it up, work harder and realize what you can do with what you have!

good bye and it has been a great ride ? oh please!! I know why you are saying good bye it is because it has been the worst ride for you guys or why would you be saying good bye? Normally if you had been taking good care to update to fix all the firmware issues and the speed of this mini tablet you would have never said good bye and I bet you on that.
