Ahhh the Dell Streak 5. The 5-inch pocket tablet that is not quite a phone and not quite a tablet has now been shelved by Dell in the US. If you go the Dell Streak 5’s website, it says that the tablet’s no longer available. Reports are saying that it’s partly due to sales not meeting the company’s expectation for that region.
However in the Asian market, the Streak 5 is still alive and kicking. Dell Hong Kong still has the Streak 5 site up and running. We saw this Android pocket tablet last April when it was launched but it’s just recently that units are making the rounds to tech editors. You can read a nice and detailed review over at Yugatech.
But the big question is, will it suffer the same fate as its US brethren? One thing it has going for itself is its unique size but the Php25k price tag associated with it can be a downer for the savvy buyer. And I’m sure this EOL news of the Streak 5 will have a ripple effect in other markets including ours.
So do you still think that the Dell Streak 5 is a good investment for a portable tablet device?[Streak Smart]
