I will take my iDoug Dark Lord mantle off and resume my normal news reporting by letting you all know that if you are on the fence about getting the Dell Streak, the Android 5 inch Tablet then you might be swayed by learning that Best buy is now offering the Dell Streak for $100.00 with a 2 year contract. not bad for a device yet to get some real traction. The lack of Froyo, Android 2.2 or even 2.1 at launch was hard for this awkward device to really build any momentum. Keep in mind that if you buy the Black Dell Streak it will come with Android 2.2, but the Red and the White version swill still have Android 1.6.

Now the bad news. Dell apparently hasn’t found the right pencil pusher at AT&T to sign off on the Froyo update according to our favorite Dell Ambassador for Mobility Lionel Menchaca, he has posted on the MyDellMini.com blog that AT&T update will not happen this year and to look for it next year. This while Dell has been sending out an “Over The Air” update for their non locked devices as well as European Devices.

AT&T, why do you love to make us hate you?

  1. And now you can get the 16GB models unlocked direct from Dell for $400 and the 32GB ones for $500, including the Cherry Red one. I really wish I’d waited a few weeks.

    And as for Froyo, I’ve been running DJ Steve’s version for about a week (he just released his version 1.5.1 a day or two ago; check xda or Modaco). It’s got a couple minor bugs, but nothing show-stopping, and I’m enjoying Froyo very much.
