Devour Gets A Minor Update, 2.1 Still Nowhere To Be Found

While it’s still unknown when we’ll see a 2.1 update on the Devour, it looks like Verizon has dropped a minor update that should keep you busy in the meantime.

It’s the usual bug fixes and minor application enhancements that we’ve seen carriers drop from time to time, so nothing to write home about, but it’s always nice to know that carriers and manufacturers are paying attention to your device. I haven’t had the opportunity to play with a Devour just yet (I’ll be happy to provide you with my address, Moto!), so I’m not able to give any first hand thoughts on the update but I’m sure the changes are welcome.

Introduction

Us, Hero owners, have been waiting for an OS upgrade for a loooooong time, since the phone got released last October with Android 1.5.

At first, we were hoping for 1.6, then 2.0, and finally 2.1 was promised ("Totally for real this time, yo" - said Sprint and HTC but we saw nothing).

An internal Sprint memo has surfaced showing a new early May release date for both HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Android phones, jonathan76888 on AndroidForums found out.

The memo looks quite legitimate and this time actually lists 2.1 as the update target, compared to the one from 3 weeks ago that referenced a "maintenance release" and promised an April 9th date (followed by rumors of April 16th, all false).

Dell Streak 7" and 10" Tablets Leaked, Aero Promised By June

Dell Streak 7 and 10

In addition to the already announced Dell Streak Mini-5 - a 5" tablet device, Engadget found out from a leaked memo today that the 7" and 10" versions are going to be coming as well. Dell seems to have dropped the "Mini" part of the title for these larger versions of the Streak.

Looks like Dell has some sense after all - launching just a tiny 5" tablet would have left most consumers unsatisfied, prompting them to look for other options, such as an iPad or ICD Gemini.
