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?

Speck Blackwing Black CandyShell Case for iPad

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...

[My Thoughts] My New Device...

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.

My new Device - HTC Sensation

Just bought the HTC Sensation this week, awesome device, very fast, love the screen looks so vibrant. New Sense 3.0 is stunning.

Was able to get it Rooted and remove the bloat wear from the Telco.. So far battery life is great got over 11 hours plus on my first day.

Dell's cowardly E.O.L announcement for Streak 5

While back Gizmodo announced that the Dell Streak 5 was being pulled from shelves and the online stores as it might have been getting a possible overhaul of either hardware or software.

Most Streak owners were hoping for a software update possible gingerbread or even a hybrid gingerbread/ honeycomb, this dream has now been totally shattered thanks to the cowardly approach of Dell with the End of Life announcement for the Streak.

The reason behind this is the release (or up and coming release) of new devices in Europe and other markets blah...blah... blah.... to me it sounds like a load of crap.

They could have gone out with a bang instead it was a wimpier... they could have a least done the 2.3 update then EOL it.

I used to be very happy with Dell they had the Axim X51v which I loved and then hoped they would come out with something radical which in my view they had with the Streak.

I have now abandoned my Streak and currently have it on the market and its now tucked away in one of my draws awaiting its further demise. In the mean time I have poached my wife's HTC Legend and using that till I get either the HTC EVO 3D (most likely) or the HTC Sensation...

I am that frustrated with Dell and this stupid decision that I can no longer support or endorse any of their products to family, friends or work mates. Why support a company that abandoned its loyal customers.

Bye Dell for ever....

Dell Streak Pulled from Web Stores? Why?

Some of you may have herd through the inter-web grapevine that recently Dell and it's re-sellers have pulled the Dell Streak from their websites for sale. If you check Optus website they have the following image of the Streak with a sign at the bottom "No Longer Available".

Originally people thought Dell were discontinuing the Streak and turning its back on the faithful Streak owners? It seems that they may not have and that it might be possible that the Streak could be getting a re-release in August - will it be a Hardware revamp or (HOPEFULLY) software upgrade..
Will it be Gingerbread (2.3.3) or Honeycomb (3.0), or even a Hybrid version? It may just have to be a waiting game... like most Streak owners we all check our software update via our Streaks daily.. I know I do... maybe to much?...Nah just to hopefully.

Hopefully all your answers will be answered over the next few weeks, fingers crossed.
