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.

The removal of the Dell Streak 5 from Dell’s portfolio of products will pave the way for newer tablets and phones such as the Dell Streak 10 Pro.

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.

The 2.3.x basic apps use lot of ram and lot of processor power. So… Read more »
