Dell Streak 'now a great option' for people who recycle mobile

The Dell Streak is like a brand new phone after a huge update

Those who choose to recycle a mobile phone and are subsequently on the lookout for a replacement may now wish to consider the Dell Streak.

Flora Graham, writing for CNET UK, explains the model has recently switched to the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system – a move that is said to have turned it from the equivalent of an ugly duckling to a giant swan.

She notes the software upgrade "feels like a massive reboot" to the phone, which she goes on to describe as a "lovely treat".

"The Streak also enjoys all the updates we know and love from Froyo on other phones," states Ms Graham, adding it runs with all the latest email and web browser programmes.

Its interface has also had a significant overhaul – something that is entirely supported by the writer.

In other operating system news, Google this week announced the follow-up to Android 2.2 Froyo, which will be known as Gingerbread.
