Unlocked Dell Streaks Now Shipping with Froyo
This should be a nice surprise for those getting a Streak this holiday season.
We first got wind of Dell's plans to sell an unlocked Streak loaded with Froyo just last week. The company had been rolling out Android 2.2 to it's already shipped unlocked units and an updated version of its Streak FAQs promised that the company would be shipping a version of the Streak with Froyo pre-installed "sometime in the coming weeks."
Well, it looks like Dell has finally sold all of its Froyo-less Dell Streak units because new units are now shipping with the latest version of Android. Engadget reports that along with the previously unavailable Cherry Red Streak, the Froyo-equipped 16GB unlocked Carbon Black Streak is currently available for $579.99 directly from Dell's website. The 32GB is also available from the Dell.com and is selling for $678.99. Interestingly, the 16GB is actually selling for thirty bucks more than when it was shipping with Android 1.6.
Of course, Android 2.3 (aka Gingerbread) is expected to be revealed before the end of the year, so it's not like you'll be running the latest version of Android for very long, but don't let that stop you from enjoying the jump in performance that Froyo offers!
