My understanding is that the Gorilla glass protects the surface of the screen from scratches, not stress fractures (but is not scratch PROOF). Because of the size of the screen, it is more susceptible to stress fractures and cracks from falls and abnormal pressure (don't sit on it) than a smaller screened phone.

If you are in an environment that requires a rugged phone, then the Streak will probably not suit you. If you are someone who usually babies your devices and can benefit from the larger screen, then the Streak may be a good match.

The Streak is not on sale today...and it appears no one (even at Dell) really knows if / when it will be released. If you need a phone within the next few days, I'd also look elsewhere.
