The 5" smartphone/tablet hybrid shows a Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon CPU as the brains of the unit, which is a "similar" chip to the one in the iPhone 4. iFixit also noted with their "fixability" rating of 8/10 that the Streak would be fairly easy to repair for simple thing like battery replacement. Looks easier than tearing into an iPod, anyways……
