Overall, then, this is a positive update. However, if you’re willing to put up with the niggles we’ve already identified – our primary concern is its battery life – then it’s well worth buying as a super-charged smartphone with the capability to step up to tablet status when you need it.

So here’s the Rs. 35,000 question – should you buy the Streak or go in for a mobile handset like the HTC Desire or a better option in this case, the Samsung Galaxy S? The handsets offer the same functionality as the Streak and more especially with Android 2.2 on board. I say, stick to a handset. And don’t forget the Galaxy S also comes in a 16GB capacity (built in) and it’s even more convenient to carry around. The Dell Streak just doesn’t fit in, had it come with Éclair and a better pre loaded apps, it could be worth a consideration and on the plus side it’s still smaller than a standard tablet so you could just hold it up to your ear to talk, but it’s really not worth that much of money when a smaller device that does more is easily available. SO if you're a Streak user, do let me know what your experience has been with the device.

We can't recommend the Dell Streak yet. For it to become the natural choice for browsing the internet, it needs to support Flash. And for this, it needs its promised Android update.
