Personally i think 5 inch screen is ideal for hand held devices plus 5 inch screen (larger than 3.5 inch screen of iPhone and iPod Touch) makes it better for browsing web, reading and playing games etc. Moreover Snapdragon ARM 1Ghz processor makes Dell Streak fully capable of running Flash leveling it HP Slate which offers support for Flash and Air.
