Unlocked Dell Streaks Now Shipping with Froyo

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!

    Am I the only person in the world who took a minor performance HIT when my HTC Desire went up to Froyo?

    Now, can I justify one of these as well as my HTC, or do I wait and see what the W7 HP Slate is actually like?

    I played with one my University Dell rep brought to show. It was still running old OS but what struck me was its size. It's really to big to be a phone. It is more like a media device. Imagine crossing an Archos and a smartphone. Personally I think the iphone sized phones are to big and this is much larger.
