Dell Streak: Android 2.2 Froyo Release Date Update

By Alan Ng - Aug 11, 2010

Yesterday we told you the confirmed price and release date for US customers looking to pick up the Dell Streak, but now we have fresh details regarding the update to Android 2.2 Froyo – which most of you have been looking for.

As reported from BGR, Dell has now confirmed that the tablet/smartphone device ‘will’ be shipping with the outdated Android 1.6 software.

However, before you get angry – you’ll be pleased to know that the device will be upgraded to Android 2.2 Froyo before the end of the year according to Dell, although they didn’t give us an exact month.

Here is a message from their PR team: “We will ship [the] Streak to customers in the US with Android 1.6 and will offer an over-the-air upgrade to Android 2.2 later this year.”

So there we have it. At least 2.2 will be coming before the end of the year. Let us know your thoughts on this – are you still planning to get one?
