The Streak 5 was already over a year old, having been initially released in the UK on June 4 2010. It arrived with Android 1.6, which Dell had reskinned, but was later - and after some delays - upgraded to Android 2.2 Froyo. Despite vocal support from a minority subset of users, the Streak 5 failed to achieve mainstream success, perhaps because of its "tweener" scale - falling in-between a phone, the functionality of which it offered, and a tablet - and non-tablet-centric OS.
