Froyo coming soon to Dell Streak

Dell's Streak will soon be powered by Froyo! Dell announced that Froyo will begin rolling out Froyo to its half-tablet-half-smartphone Streak by the end of the month. The 5-inch smartphone-tablet crossover launched this summer, and originally shipped with Android 1.6. In September Dell offered a limited update to version 2.1, but it was not without its troubles.

Word of the incoming Froyo update came courtesy of the official Dell UK Facebook account. On Facebook Dell posted an update stating that they "will begin a roll-out of the 2.2 update OTA before the end of November."

The good news is that the update will be delivered over-the-air, meaning you won't need to plug it into your PC to grab it. But there is bad news: This update will roll-out staggered by region. The update will first be available to those in the United Kingdom, with Dell asking those elsewhere to "please be patient as your build may be happening at a later stage".

So, for those Streak owners out there, Froyo is coming, as proved by these sneaky screenshots--its just that, uh, were not entirely sure when it's coming.
