Dell Streak receives custom Dell Stage Android 2.2 update

updated 04:25 am EST, Thu December 2, 2010

Locked Streaks join unlocked Streaks with update

As promised, Dell has released an over-the-air (OTA) update for its Dell Streak taking it to Android 2.2. The update features Dell's custom Stage skin and is available to users of the handset who have purchased it on a plan with a carrier. The update is already shipping pre-installed on the unlocked version of the handset.

The update brings the revised Dell Stage home screen that gives users the option to use up to seven home screens. The update also allows the interface to now function in both landscape and portrait modes. A big feature boost is the addition of Swype text-input functionality, although this appears to come at the expense of the number pad that was present in the Android 2.1 version of the Stage interface on the Streak.

A video of the update in action is included below. [via The Droid Guy]
