I know, that display is going to be real game changer. It's so exciting to see those products that a few years ago were described as "in the future scientists will be able to..."

I think soon enough you'll just have a little matchbook sized device that plugs into a display of your choice. That's gonna be SOOOOO cool.

One thing is almost for sure is that Apple will probably be at the forefront of bringing that technology to market, so I look forward to buying the knockoff version. =P

With the Dell Streak, the line between tablet and smartphone is so thin. I'd consider it a smartphone. It does everything a tablet would as well and make phone calls. I believe that is the definition. Tablets are not capable of cellular phone broadband or are just not designed to use these for their wireless connections, only WiFi and Bluetooth.

Anyone, correct me if I am wrong.

It's samsung's ****ing screen. Why would apple be the first to bring it to market? Samsung doesn't sell anyone AMOLED based displays anymore.
Dude, smoke a bowl and relax.

Everybody and their mom is working on these. Samsung is not the only one. Is everyone here a ****ing fanboy? I wasn't thinking of Samsung's particular version, if it makes you feel better.

Bitchin' screen....but win7??? Come on!
Actually I think Win7 will gain some momentum once Nokia releases a flag ship device. I watched many demos of the new Win7 Codename Mango and it looks pretty damn sexy. I don't think I'll get rid of my android device, but I would like to see Microsoft gain some mobile market.

So we went from phones the size of bricks to small enough to lose in your pocket and now back to bricks. This whole bringing back the 80s thing is getting out of hand

So a 4"+ screen makes it a brick? I guess, if your hands are the size of an 8 year old. Also, back to the 80's? Yeah, I hate that our phones are now nearly as powerful as computers, don't weigh 10lbs, and can only do just about everything. Damn these new-age electronics and all their innovation.

I don't know if you have noticed or not, but the new "bricks" do a few more things than Gordon Geckko's brick.

....now if they resurrect the Pinto...I'm with ya.

It's cool, but portable batteries really need to evolve to keep pace. Not lasting even a day is ridiculous for a mobile device.

You are wrong, Dell Streak has a 5" screen and last time I checked 5 is bigger than 4.7.

Only a 0.3" difference between the Dell Streak and the HTC Eternity in terms of screen size. Perhaps the line between tablets and smartphones is starting to blur ?
