O2 brings Android update to Dell Streak

The device got a positive review from us when it landed earlier this summer, despite the fact that it was packing an already tired Android 1.6. If that didn't put you off purchasing, we have some good news - Android 2.1 is incoming.

Ok, it's not the 2.2 upgrade currently heading to most high-end Androids, but it's a big step in the right direction. According to The Really Mobile Project, O2 will roll out the Android update from tomorrow (1st September), with a plethora of new and improved features added to the phone/tablet hybrid.

Those additions include 720p video recording from the rear facing 5MP camera, native multi-touch support including 'pinch-to-zoom', document editing via the QuickOffice application. support for ‘live wallpapers’ and support for multiple mail accounts, as well as Exchange email and contacts sync.

Improvements include an enhanced phone dialler, application compatibility with apps in the Market requiring Android 2.0+ plus a number of speed and performance optimisations.

All of that coming your way in a matter of hours. Android 2.2? Don't hold your breath.
