Dell Streak Update

September 4, 2010

I have a new Dell Streak, which is a great piece of hardware, with, it has to be said, software that does not do it full justice. Although Android 1.6 is perfectly serviceable, the Streak really needs a newer version of the operating system to really shine.

It has been announced that O2 will be rolling out Android 2.1 soon to Dell Streak’s bought through (and locked to) the O2 network.

This morning my Streak (Dell OEM version) announced that it had an update waiting. Unfortunately this turns out only to have been a minor update, as my device is still running Android 1.6 following the update.

Before -> After

Firmware Version: 1.6 -> 1.6
Baseband Version: GAUSB1A110700-EU -> GAUSB1A111100-EU
Kernel Version: 2.6.29-perf -> 2.6.29-perf
Build Number: 4399->6267

Let’s hope 2.1 or 2.2 comes along soon.
