Dell confirms T-Mobile Streak 7 won't be updated to Honeycomb

Honeycomb-bee We told you back in August that while WiFi-only versions of the Dell Streak 7 would be treated to an official Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) update, T-Mobile 4G variants would be indefinitely stuck with Froyo.

Last week's rollout of the OTA update to what seemed like every Streak 7 out there except the T-Mobile one supported our previous news, and now we have solid confirmation from none other than Dell.

Speaking about the Honeycomb update for unlocked and WiFi Streak 7s in the US, Europe, and Asia, the company put the final nail in the coffin with this statement:

Dell will not be offering the update for customers locked to T-Mobile in the U.S. With each software update, the requirements for offering the update vary by carrier, region and device, and Dell has decided to not offer this update to T-Mobile customers in the United States.

There's no uncertainty in that.
