Orange UK next to scrap unlimited data; Vodafone to follow?

Dell have just sent over their Streak Android MID, fresh to the O2 network today, and we've been getting to grips with it the 5-inch Snapdragon-based slate.  The company are insistent that this is a tablet, not a smartphone, but of course it really sits somewhere in-between.  Either way, it's fast, slick, and - as you quickly figure in the first few minutes of picking it up - great for web browsing.
