Honeycomb update for the Dell Streak 7 starts rolling out to some owners
Well, it appears as though that some Dell Streak 7 owners are getting the update just a little bit earlier than the rumored date of October 7th – though, some are reporting different stories in regards to its installation process.
Specifically, some say that apps are left intact after the installation, while others mention that their units are wiped completely. With the latter, it makes a bit more sense taking into account that it’s getting a fresh dose of a totally new platform. On top of that, the tablet’s lower WVGA (800 x 480) resolution seemingly makes the layout feel rather cramped versus its higher resolution counterparts.
Nevertheless, it’s indeed sweet that the update is starting to roll out to some owners. Of course, you can try to manually initiate the process under the Android settings menu if you haven’t received a notification.

I'd hold off on buying it. I've been trying to get the store Streak to update all day and it just keeps erroring out over n over again. Its been the worst tablet ive seen for a good while now. Nice hardware but Dell really bunked up the software. If i could ever get the update to load correctly and go to that nice stock honeycomb experience, im sure it would be night and day. I'll update if it ever does.. lol
