Dell Streak: U.S. Release Rumors – Getting Android 2.2 FroYo

By Jamie Pert - May 25, 2010

Last year Dell revealed plans to impact the smartphone market, we are now hearing that U.S. carriers may soon be offering Dell’s impressive Streak handset.

Earlier today we revealed details regarding an O2 UK release, we have now heard some information regarding a U.S. release, albeit a bit vague.

Apparently the Dell Streak (formally the Dell Mini 5) will be available in North America sometime this summer, no carrier details have emerged yet, however it could be a popular handset with it’s massive 5 inch capacitive touchscreen display and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Despite earlier reports suggesting no Android 2.2 FroYo update was expected, SlashGear suggest that FroYo will come later this year, the reason for the delay is said to be due to Dell’s customized UI, it’s a bit of a shame that the handset doesn’t come out-of-the-box with the latest Android version.

Will you considering upgrading to the Dell Streak?
