Dell ceases production of the Streak 5, will be remembered

The Dell Streak may have been the first 5-inch phone-tablet-type-of-thing to launch here in Australia on Optus, but now its time has come and gone with Dell announcing today in the US of A that it will no longer be produced and sold to the masses.

We’re not too sure as to whether or not updates will still be made available to the Dell Streak 5 — which is still on Android 2.2 — however, if updates are coming in the future they won’t be a priority.
