    I'm looking for a good small tablet solution. I was looking at an archos 5 (old, but cheap), but now I'm looking at the Dell Streak.

    There are just three things I want from a tablet. The ability to read e-books, portability (smaller = better), and GPS.

    What concerns me is... without a phone contract, will the Dell Streak GPS function? And could I potentially experience any other problems?

    Cheers in advance!

    GPS will work just fine, but you will have to get a offline map software or use Google Maps but it has a limited cache capability.
