If only it were as easy as my last few phones to transfer contacts... Both Apple and Google have a fair way to go with interoperability in my view before they've caught up to where some vendors were five years ago.

The Dell Streak (né Mini 5) certainly seems to be an interesting device, in a generally positive sense of the word. There's a few things, as I've already alluded to, that have annoyed me. This includes the inability to import/export contacts in the standard VCard format without having to revert to third party functionality, as well as the lack of any form of encryption for sensitive files, and the frustrating use of a proprietary connector (Hey, sounds like Apple here).

I haven't looked into the dock for it yet, which offers power, USB and an HDMI output (720p). That could certainly be useful for those times in hotels.
