    I thought the anandtech review of the streak was interesting in so far as he really seemed to like the form factor even though the device seems very flawed for other reasons. I can certainly see the appeal of a larger screen but losing the ability to stick it in my jeans pocket would kill it for me as a phone. And once it’s not a phone, then it’s a tablet, so why not go even a little bigger than the streak? But still, I’m curious to see one in person.

      One of those new words hippsters use: means Macy Gray is scary as hell.

        Holy crud, I just read that article: my comprehension of it was fairly limited.

    q[< Engadget: Samsung Galaxy Tablet P1000 firmware leaks out, points to 1GHz Hummingbird core? <]q As cool as this would be, I'd really wait for a multi-core Hummingbird derived processor before even thinking about this. I love the Hummingbird in my Galaxy S as it is very snappy, but it does get bogged down on occasion when I'm doing something along the lines of installing an application while using others.

    Sad news about BFG’s defunct “lifetime warranty”. Really does make the prospect of buying anything else from them a definite “no-go”.
