The verdict isn’t in on Dell’s upcoming Stage UI to be packaged with the Android 2.2 update to the Streak, but for a launcher it holds some promise. Think HTC Sense meets stock Android, and that looks like what you will get. But why wait? Or why even be relegated to the Streak?

To get UI looking right in landscape mode requires a bit of extra work, but so does anything worth doing. At the very least this offers a launcher replacement that won’t require the risk of bricking your phone. Pretty slick looking, though, right? Instructions and more at the link below.
