Dell Streak 5 Heading For Mobile Graveyard

It seems that the Dell Streak 5 has just about outlived its usefulness, as the latest word is Dell has now put their official stamp on the device as no longer available. The Dell Streak 5 was billed as a smartphone/tablet, but obviously wasn’t really either and albeit running the Android operating system, just after a year of being released the device is headed for the mobile graveyard.

According to the guys over at Liliputing, Dell has now officially discontinued the 5-inch smartphone come tablet and have put up a web page announcing the fact, a page where they also offer alternative to the Dell Streak 5.

The page announced the demise of the Streak 5 but then goes on to offer such alternatives as the Dell Streak 7, a 7-inch Android 2.2 Froyo slate, the Dell Venue smartphone, a 4.1-inch touch screen Android 2.2 Froyo handset, the Dell Venue Pro, a 4.1-inch touch screen Windows Phone 7 handset, and the Dell Inspiron Duo, a laptop of course.

The Dell Streak 5 has been out of stock for quite a while already at Dell so I figure they decided to put the final nail in the Streak 5’s coffin at last, and move on to other offerings.

The Dell Streak 5 unfortunately was too large to be what one would call a comfortable in the hand smartphone, but on the flip side was also just too small to be called a full on tablet, so perhaps this is the reason the Streak 5 has reached the end of its usefulness, as the tablet space is now offering larger devices in the 10-inch range that seems to be the most popular size, probably due to the Apple iPad of course.

Have to say though, personally I believe there are far better tablets and smartphones out there that offer much more than the Dell Streak 5, so its loss probably wont be missed much by many.

    Yeah, pointless, biased article.
    Owned a Streak 5 for over a year and completely disagree with the bulk of the article.
    Would have been worth reading if it’d shed any light on what might replace the Streak.
