Dell confirms that they're committed to getting Honeycomb onto the Streak 7
The Dell Streak 7 was one of those tablet’s that decided to come to market just a teeny tiny time ahead of the Honeycomb onslaught, and honestly, it might’ve been the reason why it didn’t fare as well as the competition. Interestingly, we’ve seen a Dell Streak 7 running Honeycomb as it was shot alongside its other brothers and sisters, which seems to provide evidence that an update is in the works.

Thankfully, it looks like it’s indeed coming as Dell’s director of marketing for the EMEA small business channel confirmed the inevitable truth. Specifically, Erik Day showed off several Dell Streak 7 tablets at IFA running the newest build of Honeycomb (version 3.2).

Previously, one of the obstacles that prevented them from bringing Honeycomb is that previous builds, specifically v3.0 and v3.1, did not offer flexibility for other display resolutions. Meaning, they were catered to run on tablets sporting display sizes of 10.1-inches – like the ones on the Motorola XOOM and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Nevertheless, it spells good news for Dell Streak 7 owners out there – albeit, the update is planned to be released for the Wi-Fi only version of the tablet. However, Dell didn’t spill the beans regarding an actual release date for the highly anticipated update, but the rumors still suggest a September time frame.
