Dell Streak to get Android 2.1, accessories galore later this year

On the heels of the Dell smartphone leaks yesterday, we have a bit more than a speck of new info on the often-discussed, never-shy Streak. In the big stack of product sheets that the guys and gals over at Engadget graciously shared with everyone, there's word that the Streak will indeed be getting an Android 2.1 OTA update by September, plus a slew of cool accessories.

Of course, when the Streak will actually be released is still unknown, but there's new documentation showing that a WiFi-only model will be available, in addition to the 3G-capable model we've previously seen. The full specs are now pretty much official, with the 5-inch tablet toting 512MB ROM, 256MB RAM, and a 2GB non-user accessible microSD for system and application files. The 1GHz QSD8250 Snapdragon was already known, as well as the 5.0MP AF camera and front-facing VGA camera.

As for those accessories, there will be such things as a Car Dock Kit (MSRP $49.99) and a Home AV Dock Kit (MSRP $69.99) to go along with the obligatory Extra Battery Kit (MSRP $54.99). There will also be a wide range of color choices, nine in all, just like we saw last month, with names like New Cherry Red, Passion Purple, and Gecko Green.
