The Dell Streak

Dell's Streak will soon be powered by Froyo! Dell announced that Froyo will begin rolling out Froyo to its half-tablet-half-smartphone Streak by the end of the month. The 5-inch smartphone-tablet crossover launched this summer, and originally shipped with Android 1.6. In September Dell offered a limited update to version 2.1, but it was not without its troubles.

Word of the incoming Froyo update came courtesy of the official Dell UK Facebook account. On Facebook Dell posted an update stating that they "will begin a roll-out of the 2.2 update OTA before the end of November."

The good news is that the update will be delivered over-the-air, meaning you won't need to plug it into your PC to grab it. But there is bad news: This update will roll-out staggered by region. The update will first be available to those in the United Kingdom, with Dell asking those elsewhere to "please be patient as your build may be happening at a later stage".

So, for those Streak owners out there, Froyo is coming, as proved by these sneaky screenshots--its just that, uh, were not entirely sure when it's coming.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
