Google Instant Now Available in Beta For some devices

We first heard of Google Instant back in september, and even had a way to get it to work on some devices. Although this was only a temporary bug, and the link to Mobile Google with Instant was later pulled, we now are getting word that Google Instant is hitting some devices in beta form. The image seen above has been what users of some Android devices are seeing when they navigate to Google via their Android devices. So far we have been told that users of the Droid, Droid x, and Incredible are all seeing the toggle switch for instant. And if you forgot, or haven't used Google in some time, here is what Google Instant is all about: [youtube]ElubRNRIUg4[/youtube] It's likely more devices will be available to activate it later today.

Dell Streak Froyo Beta ROM available now

A Froyo ROM for the Dell Streak, currently in beta, is now available to download via a somewhat lengthy process. Everything is working, and there are a few bugs like the Streak randomly rebooting, or 3G data problems after switching off WiFi. However for a beta in the early stages of a Froyo ROM this is very impressive. The process is pretty detailed and lengthy and requires updating the baseband. Don’t be too concerned, this is all taken care of by a program made by Qualcomm so, in theory, it is safe. However, as with all rooting, nothing is 100% safe and you will need to try it at your own risk. You can check out the instructions for download over at Android @ Modaco
