Dell Streak to get Froyo later this year, T-Mobile wants none of it

Two pieces of news for all you Streak Freaks out there:

First up, you can breathe a sigh of relief as, according to Android Central, Dell have now confirmed that the 5 inches of hotness will, indeed, get an over-the-aether upgrade to Android 2.2 later this year.

It’ll still launch with Android 1.6, but you can feel safe in the knowledge that your device won’t be abandoned in the ancient halls of obscurity.

But what’s this? Dell have now also confirmed that the Streak won’t run on T-mobile’s 3G network. Uh-oh. This is clearly bad news for the T-Streak Freaks in the audience.

So, unless you’re of the patient type that doesn’t mind staring outside of the train/bus/ferry/helicopter window for most of your morning commute as your page loads and loads and loads and loads over an EDGE connection, I’d consider moving to a different device/network.

If you’re still keen (and you probably should be), you can hit up the pre-sale page here, and leave your contact details to be eligible for a shipping upgrade to 2nd Business Day, as well as the opportunity to buy a Plantronics Bluetooth headset for only $0.99 when purchased with the Streak.
