Dell Streak Upgrade to 2.2

Can anyone tell me when the Froyo 2.2 upgrade will be available for my Dell Streak in the UK. This seems to be a closely guarded secret. I would appreciate any feedback. When and if it is available, how will I get it? Will it be a download by phone or off the PC? CHeers John

The first part of the question... when ? your quess is as good as mine. Sometime in 2010

 

How will you get it? It will be downloadable OTT (over the air) so, directly to your phone, or I believe you could also install it via a cable

I've heard late 2010. For some reason Dell thinks this is acceptable. By the time Froyo comes out on the Streak, Android 3.0 will probably be in testing or being released I bet.

Re: Dell Streak Upgrade to 2.2

I'm in the UK and have just purchased a Dell Streak. I can't say that I'm overly impressed or satisfied with my purchase as the device keeps crashing. I too would LOVE to know when either 2.1 or 2.2 will be released for the device, as at the moment it's borderline useless (crashes on about 50% of the web pages I visit).

I'm confused about what's going to be released when. According to articles I have read, 2.1 will be released over-the-air for the Dell Streak in September (http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/21/dell-streak-to-bump-up-to-android-2-1-in-september-hopefully-sh/). I really hope that Dell do something quickly as this device is severely let down by unstable software/OS. Is crashes so many times every day while performing trivial tasks like surfing the web. I feel like I have wasted my money on a prototype device.

The problem in this day and age is that everyone's in such a hurry in this cut-throat tablet/mobile space that things are rushed and not QA'ed properly. Love the look of the device, love the screen, but the user-experience is totally destroyed by buggy software.

Re: Dell Streak Upgrade to 2.2

after hours and hours of negociation, threats of leaving and catching out o2 managers in doublespeak they have confirmed to me today that they are not bothering with 2.1 and they are testing 2.2 at the moment and "hope" to release it in september if all the testing with the network goes ok. i had this confirmed by a customer service manager and a tech support manager separatly

Re: Dell Streak Upgrade to 2.2

Thank you for the information, it was very useful. I have had very few problems with my Streak but one I do have is that when I set my alarm it goes off on time, If I snooze the alarm, the clock on the phone jumps forward by 10 minutes. I don't bother to snooze it anymore. Just wondered if anyone has had anything like it happen to them?

One major concern is the phone speaker when talking "hands free" I have never hear such a tinny speaker on what supposed to be a top quality item. I paid £429 for this from the Carephone Warehouse and would have thought DELL whould have invested in a decent speaker for their flagship model. Apart from those niggles I do love everything about the Streak, so come on DELL, don't run away from the issues like APPLE did and you will have loyal customers for years to come.

Re: Dell Streak Upgrade to 2.2

C'mon DELL, seriously... RELEASE THE UPDATE TO Android 2.2 and you will see how you will change everyones perspective towards the streak and how it will become the hottest phone/tablet in the market. its a no-brainer. what are you guys waiting for ??????? 90% of streak owners are previous iphone owners and we know how it feels to be limited on things. I love the streak, but not the 1.6....

Re: Dell Streak Upgrade to 2.2

"after hours of negotiations and threats you finally got it confirmed that 2.1 wasnt going to be released for the streak. wow - thats a waste of time. why would you argue with dell reps whether 2.1 is going to be realeased or not - who cares. dell is real slow when it comes to adopting 2.2 and i think i am getting rid of my streak but seriously - you sound like you robbed a bank or held hostages or something. lol. what a funny post.
