Froyo, New UI Coming To Dell Streak In The UK Soon

By 12:11 Sun, 11 Jul 2021 Comments

The Dell Streaks will be jumping from the past to the future - they will start ditching Android 1.6 Donut and going straight to 2.2 Froyo (sorry, Eclair) very soon. Along with the usual updates that come with Froyo, the Streaks will receive a recent UI as well.

Dell will start rolling out the Android 2.2 Froyo update in the UK by the discontinue of November and go on to other regions from there. It won’t be available for all regions simultaneously, instead it will be done in stages. Performance improvements, Flash 10.1 and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) hotspots are of course on the list of recent features, but there’s the recent Stage UI for the Dell Streak as well.

We first heard of Stage UI when Dell’s droids were announced. Now the recent interface will be replacing the current custom UI of the Streak. Here’s a 7 minute video of Android 2.2 Froyo with Stage UI running on the Dell Streak (check out the portrait mode).

Anyway, Dell will be offering a backup & restore app so that you can preserve your data after the updates. A notification should appear correct on the phone once the update is available for your Streak. From Dell's Facebook posts it seems like the update rollout might well continue into December, so it will hold a while before it gets everywhere.

An fascinating rumor is that the Dell Streak (recent units that sell directly with Froyo) will be available in recent colors too. It's not clear what those colors will be - red, white, black?
