Dell Continues to Promise Froyo for the Streak by End of Year, Ceases Updates to Android 2.1

The recently leaked Android 2.2 ROM for the Dell Streak has to mean the official update is coming soon right? Well if you haven’t installed it already, Froyo isn’t too far off though Dell won’t commit to anything other than their “before the end of the year” stance. The timeframe was reconfirmed, but users are promised the update will come “much sooner” than December 31st.

In fact, due to the additional resources necessary to get Froyo ready for its push to the Streak, Dell is calling off any future Android 2.1 updates and ceasing to push the update to users who have yet to receive it. That’s a bummer, especially if Android 2.2 manages to get delayed. However, it’s a small price to pay if it means we will see Froyo that much sooner.

    I see that the tablet goes to landscape when it is on its side without a keyboard being open. I know it does not have a keyboard but with my old G1 and now my Epic 4G it does not go to landscape on the home screen unless keyboard is open. Please fix so it changes for all. Thank you. This has been a pet peeve of mine for almost 2 years.

    I just can’t imagine myself still waiting for froyo update. this is what discourages me from carrier branded phones. I prefer my unlocked phones.
