As we near the release of Android 2.3, we are seeing more and more devices get updated to 2.2 so they're not too behind OS-wise. Continuing this trend, the AT&T version of the Dell Streak has just received the official Android 2.2 Froyo update.


For those of you who have not rooted the device you can expect the update to be pushed to you in the coming weeks. It's available to some users now, but we all know how the update system works with users seeing the update available for them at dramatically different times.

With Android 2.2 on the Streak, users can expect several new features such as Flash Player 10.1, the ability to create a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, a new UI called Stage, and much more refinements and features.

    Do you have a source for this?

    The 2.2 update bricked my streak and tech support was useless. Now I have to wait 3 days for a new streak, and all the hassle of setting it up again. Customer Service didn’t care. So be aware if you do the upgrade, you could end up like me. Frustrated and phone-less.

    What happens if you have rooted your phone? Can you still install the new version?

    Dell has the update out. AT&T is the hold up. This is pitiful.

    Hope you’re not all holding your breath waiting.

    I just hung up with AT&T. First I called Dell, who told me they have the OTA update and are ready to release it but cannot as AT&T has once again delayed it. No one seems to know WHY, just that it has happened.

    So I called AT&T and worked my way 3 levels up the support chain to try and get an answer. Ultimately I was told that no one at AT&T could tell me when it would actually be released. Feeling rather incredulous over that answer, I actually asked “Are you telling me there is no one, in the entire corporate structure of AT&T, who can tell me when they’re going to allow it to be released, and was told “That’s correct”. REALLY?

    When I told them I would have to consider switching carriers and going to someone who COULD support release it, they even offered to talk to billing to eliminate any penalties associated with my doing so. REALLY???

    AT&T is obviously willing to sacrifice customers, or at the very least their customers good will rather than be straight with them.

    This is much the same as when I bought my first iPhone through them over two years ago. A major selling point for me at the time was that the device be able to tether to my laptop. “Well, it doesn’t now, but with the new software release coming out next month it WILL be”. Two and a half years later my iPhone still doesn’t tether (UNLESS I’m willing to drop my unlimited data plan) and now they’re doing the same thing with the FROYO release.

    Once again AT&T has decided to put the screws to their customers and has lied to us all.
