Dell Streak: Android 2.1 Update – Did you get it?

We have some good news for Dell Streak owners now, as we can confirm that the company is now pushing out an OTA update to Android 2.1 Eclair, despite previously saying that the Dell Streak would go straight from 1.6 to 2.2 Froyo.

Either way, Streak owners have a brand new update to play around with, and as Phandroid reports, customers who haven’t received the OTA notification yet, should go to their phone’s settings and see if anything pops up on ‘System Update’.

No word on the Android 2.2 Froyo update yet, as Dell are presumably hard at work to release it before the end of the year as promised. At least you can say that you’re not stuck on Android 1.6 now!

Have you received the update on your Dell Streak yet?

Hi, I also updated to 2.1 a few days back and I have to agree with Kenneth. The new keyboard is a real step back compared to the one that came with 1.6. When texting it becomes a real point of annoyance having to switch from letters to numbers and punctuation after being so happy with the qwerty+ layout we had before. I bought the dell streak specifically for the screen real estate & I don't see why I should revert back to a keyboard that not only seems more suited to a smaller device but also seems a lot… Read more »

Updated to the Android 2.1 on my Dell Streak…. a few hiccups on the way. Firstly, and probably the biggest of all, when I updated to the Android 2.1, I lost all contact information, text messages stored on my phone, and applications. To start with my thoughts of the update, I hate the new keyboard. There is no button on the keyboard anymore to close it down, so you have to press and hold the touch button above the home key….which doesn't always close down the keyboard. Also it doesn't offer scroll left/right button, so if you need to go… Read more »
