Dell abandons Australian Streak Owners! No Accessories!

Ok I have owned my Dell Streak for almost 8 months (or so) and could not find any accessories - Chargers, Cables, Cases sold in Australia. Thats right you currently can not buy anything related to the Dell Streak (other than the Streak itself) here in Australia. If you want to get anything for your Streak have only a few options available to you...

My New setup.... iPad + Keyboard Dock + Bluetooth Mouse

After getting a bonus at work I thought great I might be able to afford a new notebook as my wife keeps highjacking mine, but no just wasn't in the budget, but not to worry here is my stop gap until we can afford it....

Rumour: Dell Streak to get GingerBread 2.3? Or will it?

It seems that Dell might release GingerBread for the Dell Streak, this from Amy Bivin from Dell responding to @Arc28 via twitter. If they are releasing 2.3 I hope they don’t draw it out like they did with 2.2. NOTE: Dell released 2.2.2 in May of 2011 whats next 2.3?

I received my Speck Blackwing Black CandyShell Case for my iPad, it was straight on my iPad and it looks great, my darling wife has already informed me that she is stealing it for her iPad that I am getting her over the next week or so...

Well I have finally come back to the land of WinMo, as I now have bought the HTC HD2. This mammoth power house of a device sports a 4.3 inch screen with power to boot - 1GHz processor.

Mobile History...

Over the years I have been using Pocket PC's starting form my first iPaq rz1710 (rz1710 Review), it was a very nice little device, great for me to start with.

Then came the Harrier (for those in the USA - PPC-6600) came along with Telecom, which I bought I liked this phone / PPC because of the portrait slide out keyboard which was great for texting, it ran WM 2003.

After WM5 was released I was interested in the Apache (PPC-6700), I had seen on the website that the Apache had 64MB RAM and 128MB flash ROM, to my surprise it had less memory (RAM) than my Harrier, I went to my local Telecom store to enquire about the device, I asked them why it had less memory, their reply was less than inspiring... They knew NOTHING.

In the ending I had to go onto the Sprint website to find out that WM5 had a NEW memory management system that it used ROM rather than RAM to store programmes and that it used RAM to run the apps... You would think that a Telco would have staff trained and know what they are selling.
