Froyo OTA update for AT&T-locked Dell Streak expected on February 1st

Dell-streak-froyo-feb1 While most Dell Streak users who've been enjoying Froyo (Android 2.2) for months are already looking toward Gingerbread (2.3) or Honeycomb (3.0), there are still many AT&T customers out there using Donut (1.6) who are waiting for the official OTA update to Froyo. These people have had their hopes raised and then quickly dashed more than a few times in the past, so many are now in "I'll believe it when I see it" mode whenever a new wave of "the update is coming" rumors washes ashore.

The latest "official word" that's been hitting my inbox like a tsunami comes from various Best Buy mobile consultants, Geek Squad agents, and tipsters who wish to remain anonymous. According to them, the OTA update will begin its rollout on Tuesday, February 1st (the day before the expected launch of the Dell Streak 7).

Recent activity on the Dell Software Update site has prompted many users to cross their fingers that Froyo would be delivered through official channels soon, and I guess we'll find out on the 1st whether those crossed fingers did any good. AT&T-locked Streak users are used to waiting in the dark, anyway, so what's another few days, right?

Oh, and by the way, the latest version of DJ_Steve's StreakDroid custom ROM (version 1.6.1) is capable of yielding a Quadrant benchmark score of over 3100 when overclocked. Just in case you were wondering.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
