Dell M02M next-gen Streak gets WiFi certified: Looking Glass or Opus One?

What looks to be Dell's next Streak tablet/phone hybrid has passed through WiFi certification. The Dell M02M is described as a smartphone with WiFi b/g/n, but the M02M product code is close to the M01M of the original 5-inch Streak. The new device could well be the "Looking Glass" 7-inch tablet, which Michael Dell whipped out briefly back in September and which was alluded to on case-manufacturer Vaja's site recently, or it might be the Dell Opus One. That's been described as the successor - Streak 2, if you prefer - to the original Streak, with a 5-inch higher-resolution panel and a dual-core CPU. [via Pocketnow]

Dell Streak Price Lowered to $399, Available in January

Good news for everyone planning on purchasing the Dell Streak within the next couple months, Dell has cut the price a whole $180.

O2 Dell Streak Froyo update releasing today

UK carrier O2 has announced that it is pushing out the OTA Android 2.2 Froyo update to the Dell Streak today, as promised earlier this week. The wireless update will begin later on in the day, and be a staggered roll-out; there's no public timescale from O2 as to how long the carrier expects before every device is updated. Froyo will bring with it performance updates together with a new UI for the Streak.

Dell Streak for O2 UK Update to Android 2.2 Rolling Out This Week

The Dell Streak, which launched earlier this year with Android 1.6 on board, has seen a pretty aggressive update schedule since it hit the market. Which, for owners of the 5-inch "tablet" device, is good news. It doesn't look like it's slowing down, either, as O2 UK has just announced that Streaks tied to their network will be getting the official, carrier-approved update starting this week.

$100 Dell Streak as Best Buy crank up the subsidies

Dell's Streak can now be picked up for just $99.99 with a new, two-year AT&T agreement, undercutting its previous price by $150. The new deal is available through Best Buy (rather than from Dell direct) and includes free shipping. Both the black and white versions of the Streak are available in the deal, and if you've purchased a Streak from the retailer within the past thirty days, you can apparently call their 1-888-BEST-BUY number and they'll refund you the difference.

Dell confirms AT&T-locked Streak Froyo update in Jan 2011

Dell has confirmed that the AT&T-locked Dell Streak won't get an Android 2.2 Froyo update until January 2011, lending legitimacy to the leaked emails tipping a January 12 release. According to the official Dell blog, "customers in the United States who own AT&T SIM-locked versions of the phone will hopefully begin seeing the Froyo update sometime next month." The delay in pushing out the release - which upgrades the Streak from its original Android 1.6 OS - is not fully explained, but Dell certainly implies it is to do with AT&T's involvement in the carrier-locked handset. The update for unlocked Streaks began rolling out last month.

AT&T Dell Streak Froyo update not due until January 12?

Dell's firmware update for the AT&T Dell Streak, bringing the 5-inch tablet to Android 2.2 Froyo, has reportedly been delayed until January 12 2010. That's according to some leaked emails handed to Streak Smart, supposedly from inside either Dell or AT&T, claiming the update for carrier-locked Streaks "should happen the week of January 12th." Meanwhile, unlocked Dell Streak units ordered from Dell.com and delivered with Froyo pre-installed aren't expected to ship now until December 26. In fact, according to some buyers who grabbed one when they were first put on sale, despite the Dell product page suggesting the Streak now comes with Android 2.2, their units have been delivered with 1.6 instead.

Dell Streak gets battery meter tweak

Sometimes the simple hacks are the most useful, and we've a feeling Dell Streak owners will find this new battery gauge tweet particularly handy. The work of MoDaCo forum member Gopu, it replaces the standard battery icon with a circular meter and power-remaining percentage. You'll need to be running version 1.4.6 of DJ_Steve's custom ROM for the Streak in order for it to work, but assuming that's the case you can download the new icon ZIP from here. [via StreakSmart]
