Dell confirms: Streak to bypass Éclair, head straight to Froyo

Back in August, there was a rumour that the US Dell Streak was going to bypass Eclair, and head straight to Froyo. Remember that?

Well, Dell have now confirmed this as true, and are saying that Froyo should be available on all Streaks by year’s end.

To quote:

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 our Dell 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.

Please stay tuned here to the Mobile Devices Forum board announcements or follow @DellCares on Twitter for more information.

This is no doubt a little upsetting for all the US Dell Streak owners, as European Streak owners were given their Éclairs a little while ago, but seriously, Froyo will be worth the wait.
