Dells axes the Streak 5 tablet The company kills off its phone/tablet hybrid after just 14 months on the market.
Dell did say that the Streak 7 will still be available, at least for the near future.

Via the tablet's web page, the company put up a banner that reads "Goodbye, Streak 5. It's been a great ride." The page also shows that the tablet is no longer available from the computer giant.

The tablet launched in the UK last June, and was delayed in the U.S. until August. At 5-inches, the tablet lost most of the pros of a larger screen device, but was too large to comfortably place in a pocket or use in one hand.

Additionally, the device launched with an outdated version of Android, which helped lead to its eventual demise.

I would've actually bought one but the lack of support and the fact that the screen was limited to 30FPS was a turn-off...

Went with an HD2 instead (4.3"), would love a phone with a 5" ridiculous screen though :)
