The Dell Streak is designed to hit a 'sweet spot' between typical smartphones and tablets. During the time we spent with it, the Android-based Streak tablet was wonderful for browsing photos, viewing movies, navigating the Web and reading e-books. It's a whole lot easier to carry than the iPad and it offers the flexibility of the Android platform, unlike Apple's closed iPhone OS. At the moment, it's unknown which Australian carriers will offer the Streak and what sort of data plans will be available.

The ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU runs at 1GHz. It gives the Streak enough grunt to display HD video smoothly and it really does look good on the 5in screen.

The Dell Streak is a thin tablet (only around 1cm thick) with nice curves. Here you can see the top view, which includes the camera shutter, power and volume buttons, as well as the audio port.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
