Dell Streak will receive Android 2.2 update

Streak-froyoJust in case you're on the fence about the Dell Streak because it ships with Android 1.6 (Donut) and you haven't already heard the good news, I want to make sure everyone knows that the device is already standing in line for an update to Android 2.2 (Froyo), the latest version of the operating system.

Straight from Dell's press release:

The Dell Streak was designed with the future in mind and will support over-the-air updates including platform upgrades, Adobe Flash 10.1 on Android™ 2.2 later this year, video chat applications and other software innovations.

It's unfortunate that Dell wasn't able to release the device with at least Android 2.1 (Eclair) to keep up with its competitors—and maybe the US version will actually ship with it—but at least there's no question that 2.2 update is coming.
