The Dell Streak

Dell's Streak will soon be powered by Froyo! Dell announced that Froyo will begin rolling out Froyo to its half-tablet-half-smartphone Streak by the end of the month. The 5-inch smartphone-tablet crossover launched this summer, and originally shipped with Android 1.6. In September Dell offered a limited update to version 2.1, but it was not without its troubles.

Word of the incoming Froyo update came courtesy of the official Dell UK Facebook account. On Facebook Dell posted an update stating that they "will begin a roll-out of the 2.2 update OTA before the end of November."

The good news is that the update will be delivered over-the-air, meaning you won't need to plug it into your PC to grab it. But there is bad news: This update will roll-out staggered by region. The update will first be available to those in the United Kingdom, with Dell asking those elsewhere to "please be patient as your build may be happening at a later stage".

So, for those Streak owners out there, Froyo is coming, as proved by these sneaky screenshots--its just that, uh, were not entirely sure when it's coming.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
