AT&T SIM-locked Dell Streak Users Still Waiting for Android OS 2.2 (Froyo)

Do you remember Android OS Donut? You probably don’t because Donut is the codename for Android OS 1.6 which was old even back in November 2009 when the Motorola Droid launched with Android OS 2.0 (I should note that 1.6 was released in mid-September 2009). Dell Streak owners, however, have been stuck with this relatively ancient (given Android’s quick update release schedule) version. Owners of the unlocked Streak models have been receiving the Froyo (OS 2.2) updates over the past few weeks. Owners of models with SIMs locked to AT&T have not been as fortunate. And, according to Dell, they will have to wait next month (January 2011) or longer.

AT&T SIM-locked Units and the Froyo Update

Customers in the United States who own AT&T SIM-locked versions of the phone will hopefully begin seeing the Froyo update sometime next month. In the meantime, we continue to work with AT&T to push this through.
