Dell Streak worst product of 2010 claims Walt Mossberg

Bearded uncle of tech, the WSJ's Walt Mossberg, has pushed out his list of the best and worst reviewed products for 2010, and an Android device tops the charts for the most mediocre. According to Mossberg, the Dell Streak is "a tweener" that isn't big enough to be a successful tablet but is too large to be a smartphone. Android did show up in Mossberg's top gadget list, however, with the Samsung Galaxy S tied for third place with the iPhone 4.

Dell Venue Released in Hong Kong

The Dell Venue was just launched in Hong Kong slightly ahead of its launch in South Korea, which is still expected later this month. Looking very similar to the Venue Pro, minus the curved back design and slide-out keyboard, the Venue will feature a 4.1 AMOLED display with a resolution of 800 x 480.

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. Now at a $399 price tag, the device, shipping with 16GB storage and Android 1.6 (Android 2.2 available OTA upon first boot), is even a more attractive for users looking for a decent Android based tablet.

Dell 7-inch Streak gets name-check on Vaja case site

Dell's 7-inch Android tablet has shown up again, though only as a brief mention from luxury accessories manufacturer Vaja. The Vaja product page now lists Dell Streak 5" & 7" as a category, though so far there's only a generic carry case for 7-inch tablets on offer. CEO Michael Dell brought the 7-inch tablet - also known by its Looking Glass codename - on stage back in September for a very brief demo, and shortly after the WSJ suggested the device would launch within mere weeks. That failed to transpire, however; hopefully Vaja's mention of the tablet means it's coming sooner rather than later. [via Streak Smart]

Dell Venue official in Korea: Android 2.2 and curved glass AMOLED

The promised Android version of the Dell Venue Pro has been made official in Korea, with carrier KT Telecom announcing that the Dell Venue will arrive sometime this month. Priced at 700,000 won ($608), the Dell Venue runs Android 2.2 and has a 4.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen. It also lacks the slide-out QWERTY keyboard of the Windows Phone 7 powered Venue Pro, but you do get a curved Gorilla Glass toughened screen. No word on other specifications, though we're guessing Dell will be a little more forthcoming now its first carrier partner has gone public. [gallery] [via SlashGear]

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.
