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]

2.2 Update Released for AT&T’s Dell Streak

As we near the release of Android 2.3, we are seeing more and more devices get updated to 2.2 so they're not too behind OS-wise. Continuing this trend, the AT&T version of the Dell Streak has just received the official Android 2.2 Froyo update.

Unlocked Dell Streak now on sale direct from Dell

If you've been holding off buying an unlocked Dell Streak out of a sense of loyalty to Dell rather than AT&T, the day of credit card flexing is upon you. Dell is now offering the Streak direct, complete with Android 2.2 Froyo pre-loaded, priced at $549.99 with a bundled 16GB microSD card. Unfortunately, while a T-Mobile USA SIM will be recognized, and voice and EDGE data supported, the Streak still only supports AT&T 3G bands and so they're your only option in the US if you want high speed mobile data. Meanwhile it's still available for $299.99 with a new, two-year agreement from the carrier. [via StreakSmart]

White Dell Streak pictured as Best Buy exclusivity begins

Best Buy's exclusive white Dell Streak has been caught in the wild, with Jenn of StreakSmart rushing down to the store to pick up the new color variant. Ostensibly the same hardware as the black Streak already available in the US, the new model puts the hybrid MID/smartphone's 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and 5-inch WVGA display into a "smooth silvery-white" chassis with "a touch of shimmer to it." While you can reserve one online for in-store pickup - priced at $299.99 - it's not yes possible to order online for home delivery. Interestingly, it's only the back and side panels that have been changed; the front controls are still black.
