Froyo officially coming to the Dell Streak soon, 2.1 Update halted

The Dell streak only recently got it’s own 2.1 build and now Dell has announced that it will be skipping 2.1 in the United States to focus solely on 2.2 Froyo. While this does mean that Streak users will be missing out on 2.1 features over it’s currently equipped 1.6, the direct update to 2.2 will be highly worth the few days/weeks without Eclair. We have heard that 2.2 on the Streak will be available before years end, but with halting 2.1 preparation we can expect that we will see it even earlier than expected. With Gingerbread coming up quickly device manufacturers will have to push out update quickly before they get too far behind. Official Announcement Via Dell "Hi Folks, Due to resources and commitments to get our global customers the 2.2/Froyo update by the end of the year, we will not be publishing another version of 2.1 nor will we be pushing out 2.1 to additional customers. I know many of you have requested that we publish specific dates for Android OS updates; however, because there are so many variables (some outside of our control), we cannot make a specific commitment other than we will be publishing 2.2 by the end of this year to all of our Dell Streak customers. I can tell you that our target date is NOT December 31st. In fact, the over-the-air update to 2.2 is target date is much sooner than that. Please stay tuned here to the Mobile Devices Forum board announcements or follow @DellCares on Twitter for more information. Thanks again for your feedback, Amy" [Via Dell Support Forums]
