The half-smartphone, half-tablet Dell Streak is the latest device to succumb to iFixit's teardown team, which ultimately applauded how simple the Streak is to "reverse engineer"—or, more simply stated, to put back together. Not surprisingly, then, the Streak, which is based on Google's Android operating system, is also the inaugural device to receive an iFixit "repairability" score—a new rating system that the repair site has introduced to indicate how simple or difficult a device is to service. The Streak, which "Dell designed so that a mechanical engineering degree was not required for a successful disassembly," iFixit wrote on its site, received a high rating of 8 out of 10.
