Dell has today reaffirmed the fact that they plan to push Android 2.2 to all Streak handsets before years end. They will no longer be pushing out 2.1 updates to focus on Froyo. This is good news if you have gotten their 2.1 update, but they will push the update to no further customers via OTA. Dell says that the 2.2 OTA target date is set as “much sooner” then December 31st. Read Dells statement below:
“Due to resources and commitments to get our global customers the 2.2/Froyo update by the end of the year, we will not be publishing another version of 2.1 nor will we be pushing out 2.1 to additional customers.
I know many of you have requested that we publish specific dates for Android OS updates; however, because there are so many variables (some outside of our control), we cannot make a specific commitment other than we will be publishing 2.2 by the end of this year to all of ourDell Streak customers. I can tell you that our target date is NOT December 31st. In fact, the over-the-air update to 2.2 is target date is much sooner than that.”
