If you value the opinions of someone who writes in the third-person and is often criticized for his biased views of anything that isn't made by Apple, then you might want to rethink that Dell Streak you have in your hand right now. I know you love it for its generous screen size, thin profile, and seemingly unlimited potential when rooted, but according to Walt Mossberg, those warm feelings you have about the Streak are all wrong.
The day before Christmas, when most people are filled with holiday cheer, Mossberg put out his best and worst products of 2010 list. Topping the "best products" list and doing nothing to dispell the Apple fanboy allegations is, of course, the iPad followed by 4G networks and a two-way tie between the iPhone 4 (surprise!) and Galaxy S smartphones.
The Dell Streak made the cut too and was ranked #1 . . . on the "worst products" list. Mossberg published a lukewarm review of the device back in August (mentioning the iPad a whopping 15 times in the process, by the way) that labeled the Streak as a "design compromise" and described his experience with it as filled with "moments of pleasure and moments of frustration."
Despite those pleasurable moments, however, Mossberg still proclaimed it to be the worst product of the year. Bah, humbug![AllThingsD]
