As you may be aware, Dell Streak owners have not exactly been sitting on the cutting edge of Android (the device runs 1.6 Donut) since the phone was released stateside. While a leaked and tweaked build of the UK version's 2.1 update has been floating around for a while now, the average user doesn't want to take the time or risk in using an unsupported software build.
But hear ye, hear ye - hope does yet live. Dell previously announced that the Streak would be going straight to Froyo in the US, rather than making the incremental jump to Éclair. Dell's making good on this promise, and has also informed Streakers that they (and their phones) will be frolicking on Froyo "much sooner" than the previously anticipated December 31st deadline.
