Default Dell Release Official Details on Android 2.2 - 11-14-2010, 11:47 PM

Dell's Streak support page has been very recently updated with an informative outline of what's coming in the new official build. The new page includes all of the additions/changes from the the 1.6 and 2.1 builds and explains the reasons behind them based on customer feedback. It shows they listened to what we had to say!

As we can expect from various leaks we're going to be getting Dells Stage UI along with all the other lovely Froyo features. The doc confirms 720p recording and both front and rear camera support (which we lost in 2.2) and the addition of Swype as a keyboard option.

I suggest you check out the list of features for yourself while you wait fr the update. Rumour has it it's going to be released region by region, starting with the UK sometime this week.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

I see you are also on the leaked O2 2.1, do you foresee any issue getting the official 2.2?
i'm just wondering how we'll get it

The O2 2.1 build wasn't leaked, it was official. there were so many issues with it, O2 pulled it.

According to streaksmart.com the first devices to get the update, as in this month, will be the unlocked devices that aren't on contract! Apparently if your phone's on a contract, which is the case for most of us in England, then the update won't reach your phone until sometime in December! This is while they finalise things with the likes of O2... Some clarification from O2 would be nice... what a pisser!

Don't forget, there was a leaked 2.1 build though, noticed though no leaked 2.2. Seriously considering getting a Palm Pre Plus, and ditching this though.

True no leaked official ROM but here's a link to an un-official 2.2 ROM...

Unofficial Froyo ROM for Dell Streak leaves beta, enters V1 release

In the meantime anyone waiting for the official 2.2 with a device on contract will have to wait until December.
