Huzzah! The Dell Streak is pretty close to getting Android 2.1. Not Android 2.2, mind you, but Eclair is a pretty big upgrade when you consider the phone has been shipping with Android 1.6 out of the box. The update is said to be headed to the Streak around the end of August/beginning of September, with Froyo coming at some undisclosed point after that. Engadget had a chance to get hands on with some units running Android 2.1, and their overall impressions were very positive.
So what changes? For starters, the Streak will get 720p HD video recording. There is also a revamped keyboard and dialer, along with the standard 3D gallery found in most 2.1+ devices. Screen real estate on the home screen is reduced, with 24 icons fitting comfortably within the space that used to house 32. Some other tweaks around the home screen offer a slightly different experience than before. Check out Engadget’s full report for all the details.
