Dell Streak

7-inch Dell tablet due in weeks; 3- and 4-inch models soon after

Dell's 7-inch Android tablet is expected to launch within the next few weeks, according to Dell Greater China President Amit Midha, who confirmed the slate's launch to the WSJ.  The tablet is a larger version of the Dell Streak, though according to early leaks will use NVIDIA's Tegra chipset rather than the Streak's Snapdragon. However, while we've also been hearing mutterings of a larger, 10-inch slate from Dell, that's not necessarily going to run Android.  Midha confirmed that the bigger tablet is due in 6-12 months, but said that Dell will be using Windows for some devices and has even been testing Google Chrome OS as another possibility. Before then, though, there will be 3- and 4-inch devices, likely falling into Dell's smartphone line-up. [via SlashGear]

Dell Streak Gets 2.1 Update For O2

So the Streak is way behind on 1.6 and Dell has been saying that they will update it to 2.1. O2 has released the update now and we would not doubt that anyone would want to wait very long to install it. There are some instructions to doing the update and you will loose some of your data.

O2 Dell Streak getting Android 2.1 from September 1st

UK carrier O2 has confirmed that the Dell Streak Android 2.1 update will begin rolling out from September 1st, meaning owners of the tablet could be playing (officially) with Eclair as soon as Wednesday this week.  The release is a stop-gap to tide the Streak over until Android 2.2 Froyo is released later in 2010. There's no word from AT&T or Dell in the US as to when they'll be releasing the Android update for US buyers of the Streak, who will still be stuck with Android 1.6, though various leaked builds of Android 2.1 are already in the wild if you're unwilling to wait.

Dell Streak Heading to Asia in 2011

The Dell Streak may have been a new commodity here in the States, with a recent roll-out, but it's been in Europe for a little while now. That doesn't really help those in Asia-Pacific, though. If you're in that neck of the woods, and you've been eager to get your hands on one, the only real option would be to buy one unlocked in Europe, which also entails the full retail price. But, it may pay off to be a bit patient, as a Dell executive has just provided a little insight into the release of the tablet/MID for that market.
