Dell roadmap leaks outing Android schedule

A roadmap outlining some of Dell's Android plans for smartphones and other gear has surfaced online. According to the roadmap, Dell has a 4-inch smartphone codenamed Hancock that will launch in September. The smartphone is supposed to pack Android Ice Cream, dual cameras, and a dual-core processor.

Dell Venue [Hands-On and Demo]

We're here at Pepcom, a tiny bit of popcorn after the events of today's Mobile World Congress, one of many. We're here with Dell checking out the new Dell Venue, an Android phone running Android 2.2 Froyo, containing a 1GHz QSD 8250 processor, and working on a whole load of bands for connections.

Dell Venue Unlocked on Sale Now

Have you been waiting for the Dell Venue? No? Maybe it's because Dell has done essentially no advertising of the phone whatsoever? Let's talk about this phone for a moment, then we'll speak about how it's just become available for purchase through Dell today. It's got a 4.1-inch WVGA AMOLED capacitive multitouch display, a generous 8 megapixel camera on the back, three navigation buttons on the bottom instead of four - reminding you that Honeycomb, again, may reach smartphones after all, and it's running Android 2.2 Froyo.

Dell Streak 7 up for order with T-Mobile USA

T-Mobile has put the Dell Streak 7 up for order, as promised, with the 7-inch Tegra 2 slate priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement (and after a $50 mail-in rebate). The Streak 7 supports HSPA+ along with video calls using a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. It's not all good news, however. The Streak runs Android 2.2 Froyo, rather than Honeycomb, and there's no word on when - or indeed if - it will see an upgrade. Plus, the display runs at WVGA resolution, which is low when you consider the Galaxy Tab is 1024 x 600. More in Ben Bajarin's review over at SlashGear.

Dell Streak 7 $200 from February 2 confirms T-Mobile USA

T-Mobile USA has announced pricing and availability for the Dell Streak 7, which will go on sale on February 2 2011. The 7-inch 4G HSPA+ Android slate will be priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement (and following a $50 mail-in rebate). As promised, that's significantly less than the rumored pricing that circulated earlier this month. More information - plus a sign-up notifier - at T-Mobile's update page here.

Motorola Droid X Free from Dell

Before we begin, note that this deal expires January 31st, so you'd better get a move on if you plan on taking advantage of it. This deal is for a Motorola Droid X carried by Verizon - free. A two-year contract comes attached to it, of course, and you've got to be a new customer - that's a two-year activation and $29.99 a month data plan. If you're already a customer, you'll have to pay $49.99 and commit to the two-year activation with $29.99 a month data as well.

T-Mobile Dell Streak 7 rumored pricing incorrect claims carrier

The rumored Dell Streak 7 pricing calculated from apparent payment plan information on the T-Mobile site is wrong, according to the carrier. T-Mobile USA pinged us to let us know that the figures on the information page are the result of a "technical error", and that there's no official word on pricing as yet. We're guessing that means someone on the web team accidentally copied and pasted Equipment Installment plan details from another product page when putting the Streak 7 listing together. So, all guesses are back on as to whether the slate will drop at more or less than the rumored $330.

Dell Streak 7 to be $330 from T-Mobile USA?

T-Mobile USA may have prematurely revealed pricing for the Dell Streak 7, with what looks to be Equipment Installment plan details spotted on the carrier's product page. Streak Smart noticed the 7-inch tablet's fine-print mentioning an "$82.50 down payment, plus 3 monthly payments of $82.50, required"; that would work out to $330. Although there's no mention of the Equipment Installment plan on the page itself, the text follows the format from other T-Mobile product pages.

AT&T Dell Streak Froyo reportedly delayed again: “A couple of more weeks at least”

The promised Dell Streak Android 2.2 Froyo update for AT&T-locked versions of the tablet, which the company had suggested would arrive this week, looks to be further delayed. According to an internal Dell email forwarded to Streak Smart, users shouldn't expect Froyo for "a couple more weeks at least."
"Sorry for getting back to you so late, but as you probably guessed we / AT&T are not releasing the update this week. I'd say a couple of more weeks at least. AT&T is pretty thorough in their QA sessions and that's where we are." Leaked Dell email
It seems the delay is around finalizing the Streak software to make sure it runs properly on AT&T's network, though neither company is saying exactly what's going on.

Dell Venue gets official: 1GHz & curved Gorilla Glass
