Dell Backup & Restore app hits Android Market exclusively for Streak
You may remember that one of the details Streak Smart obtained from an anonymous tipster last week was that the official Froyo update for the Dell Streak would include a backup/restore tool. You may have also spotted the tool, appropriately named Backup & Restore, right around the 2:10 mark in my video demo of Dell Stage.
DJ_Steve's newest 2.2 build, the one with Stage, also includes Backup & Restore, which saves system settings, your call log, short messages, ringtones, wallpapers, web bookmarks, user dictionary, and a copy of downloaded applications (with or without their settings and data) to the Streak's SD card.
And guess what. Backup & Restore is now available in Android Market (QR code below) and clearly labeled as being "for use with Dell Streak devices only."
Since the official Froyo update will wipe your Streak and this app makes it incredibly simple to backup and restore almost everything you'd lose with a simple tap, I wouldn't be surprised to see Backup & Restore mentioned by name in the update's installation instructions.
In other words, the wait is almost over.
