    I'm just curious as to how many people out there have gone out and got one of these?

    I got mine three and a half weeks ago and still think that it's the best smart phone/PDA that I've ever owned (God only knows how good it's going to be when Dell finally get 2.2 out for it !!!), But how many other people have one?

    I'm partly curious because there doesn't seem to be the usual tidal wave of data cables, Car kits, Cases and associated cheap Chinese accessory's hitting the internet (Like you usually get within a month of new kit hitting the shelfs). The only reasons I can come up with for this is that the Streak hasn't been the success that I think it deserves to be, Or none of the far eastern company's expected it to be a big enough seller to warrant tooling up for any accessory's.

    So, What's everyones thought?

    Best points?
    It's quick,
    HUGE screen for a pocket sized device,
    Despite being big, It still fit's nicely in my pocket,
    It's from Dell so software updated and accessory's should still be getting realised for years to come,
    It feels very well made (Much better than my old HTC touch pro or Alpine),
    With wifi and GPS turned off it has quite a good battery life.

    Bad point's.
    All the Dell accessory's are bloody expensive !!!!
    If you want to use Wifi and GPS all day you better have somewhere to pop it on charge at some point,
    At the moment it's only on Android 1.6.
    Idiot's asking "Is that an iPad?"

    has it finally been released? I started looking at it when the rumor was that it might be available without a phone as in a traditional pda but never saw any recent updates.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to say, The phone ain't too shabby on it either. The speaker phone works really well too, It has some form of noise cancelling that means that even when I'm rattling about in my (Really noisy) van the person I'm speaking to can still hear me clearly.

    I think that nothing stands out as "The best feature" because the whole package is so well put together.

    Thanks for the info, I was trying to decide between the HTC Desire & the streak, I think the streak gets it from what you have said & other reviews I have read.
    Thanks

    Aparently folks in the USA will have to wait about a month longer then the people in UK to get their hands on it. Usually it's the other way round.

    Well, That explains the lack of cheap Chinese accessory's then, I thought it was out globally by now....... Maybe Dell's using the UK as free beta testers. :)
