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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
