While Dell Streak 7 owners might be rejoicing the coming of Android Honeycomb 3.2 on their devices, that unfortunately isn’t the case with those who bought their Streak 7 tablet PCs from T-Mobile. What this means is that they will remain stuck with the Android 2.2 Froyo that the tablet first came installed with and that’s the way it will be unless of course they go for the unofficial route. Like they can go for custom ROM based on the latest Android Honeycomb version. This seems to be the only way out in the present scenario where T-Mobile has stopped supporting the 7 inch tablet from this summer itself.
The story is a lot different for all other users of the Streak 7 where the Android 3.2 Honeycomb is making things way better than what it used to be with Android 2.2 Froyo. The update is currently available for download for Wi-Fi only and unlocked 3G versions of the Streak 7 tablet. Dell though has made it clear rooted Streak 7 tablet are not eligible for the update.
