Dell Streak gets unofficial Froyo 2.2 ROM [Video]

Dell's Streak tablet has seen its Android 2.1 update - in certain regions, anyway - but how about Android 2.2 Froyo for the 5-inch slate?  It's not an official update, instead being a port of a vanilla CyanogenMod ROM that's been fettled by Stephen Hyde (aka DJ_Steve), but it's a way to get the latest version of Android on your Streak with no delay. There are a few hiccups with this particular build, including the occasional random reboot, and the installation process isn't exactly a walk in the park, but the end result is Froyo on the Streak and well in advance of any official Dell option.  Anyone brave enough to try it out?

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]

Michael Dell, chief executive officer of Dell Inc. has gone and pulled another tablet out of his pocket.

The tablet is still expected to run Android 2.1 but not much other details were provided by Dell.

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.

Popular features Dell incorporated on top of cupcake include Microsoft email with Active Sync, handwriting recognition, one-click upload of photos to social sites.

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.

Dell Streak Ripped Apart by iFixIt

There's a few folks out there that, when they get a shiny new toy, immediately want to take it apart and find out all the cool little intricacies of the device. Find out how it ticks, more or less. And, most of them work for iFixIt. The group that's become notorious for ripping apart shiny new gadgets, and detailing what exactly makes them so noteworthy, has done it again. And this time, the Dell Streak made it under their fingers.

Dell Streak Update to Android 2.1 Leaks [Video]

This wouldn't be the first time a version of the Android mobile Operating System leaked out ahead of its intended launch. In fact, it's pretty much a common occurrence now-a-days. Nothing wrong with that at all. This time around, it's for those over there in the UK who've managed to pick up one of Dell's Mobile Internet Devices/tablets. The leaked version hit the Internet earlier today, and plenty of Streak owners managed to go through the update process and take in all the updated goodness.

Dell Blaze Appears on the Scene, Shows Off Android 1.5

We'll go ahead and assume that Dell must not have received the memo. You know the one, where it says that most devices are now running Android 2.x, and that 1.5 is just about as archaic as it gets? That's the one. Why do we say that? Because the Dell Blaze has just shown up on the scene, and apparently it's running 1.5. Some how, 1.6 must have gotten overlooked for whatever reason (maybe Dell doesn't want you to actually use the device).
