Dell finally confirmed at the IFA event about its plans to upgrade the Streak 7 tablet with Android 3.2 ‘Honeycomb’. We had an inkling of this but only as rumors. The entire range of Streak 7 tablets are up on display at the Dell stall with all running on Honeycomb.
The original Streak as we all know have a 5 inch display though that has been discontinued. The Streak range now starts with with the 7 inch display screen and one would find these screens to be more responsive that the previous version post its Honeycomb makeover. The devices also have the Dell’s Stage software installed which integrates very well with the Honeycomb OS. Also with Android Honey on-board, the Streak 7 is also expected to be more battery friendly than before.
Dell though had stated earlier that its only the Wi-Fi version of the Streak 7 that would be provided the Honeycomb update. There has also been no specific date that Dell could offer for the date of public availability of this upgrade though its likely to be coming this September itself.
