During IFA 2011 in Berlin, Dell’s worker added that Android 3.2 for Dell Streak 7 will appear in around October, bringing improved performance and itsignificantly extended battery life which is supposed to last for 8-9 hours. Users who suspected the death of Dell Streak 7 as well like Dell Streak 5 would be pleasantly surprised by this move of the company, though the move seems logical considering Dell Streak 7 has sold better than Dell Streak 5 in the US market and Android 3.2 Honeycomb is the tablet specific version of the Android operating system…………….
When the Dell Streak 7 launched earlier this year it was the first 7 inch tablet to feature a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, but it shipped with a low resolution, 800 x 480 pixel display and with Google Android 2.2 Froyo at a time when most tablets had higher resolution screens and Android 3.x Honeycomb software. Now Dell is getting ready to remedy at least one of those problems with a software update that brings Android 3.2 Honeycomb to the 7 inch tablet and the company has confirmed at its IFA stand. Erik Day, Dell’s director of marketing for the EMEA small business channel, took some time out of his busy pre-opening preparations at IFA to walk us through the company’s stand, and gave us access to several Streak 7 tablets running the new build of Honeycomb. The tablets designed as a more tablet-like upgrade to the original Streak, replacing the five-inch display with a more sensible seven-inch, were responsive and integrated a pretty vanilla Honeycomb install with Dell‘s Stage software excellently. Honeycomb is Google’s tablet-centric build of Android. It supports all the same software as the 2.x-series – currently known as Gingerbread pending the launch of Ice-cream Sandwich, but adds an interface better suited to the large-format displays of tablets and some clever 3D trickery using the Renderscript language. It’s a key feature to demand of an Android tablet these days, but Dell‘s previous product line has been lacking in Honeycomb goodness.
