The 5-inch Dell Streak’s TV Commercial Leaves Out Something Big
Streak is clever device, but with its 5-inch screen, a touch on
the large size for a phone and a touch on the small size for
tablet. Still, a good amount swear by it saying it’s the best
of both — like this commercial. It cleverly shows all the
usefulness that comes with the larger screen like games,
navigation, Facebook, video capture — really everything
— but in true marketing fashion, does so without showing the
downside transporting the large device.
Not that you can blame them, though. It’s the job of
marketing to point out all the pros while minimizing the cons.
Still, a 5-inch slate might seem like a great product until you try
to put it in your pant’s pocket. Or in the cup holder of your
car. Or in a shirt pocket. Or on your hip in a holster. Yeah, the
Streak is a clever device, but it’s also a big device. Your
call whether it’s a pro or a con. The commercial after the
break will try to sway you to the former though.
