Priced at $300 or less, the Dell Streak 7 is one of the cheapest tablets shipping with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor and 7 inch display. But it’s hampered by two constraints. First, it has a low resolution 800 x 480 pixel display. Second, it ships with Google Android 2.2 Froyo which is starting to look a bit dated.
It turns out there are fixes for both of those problems… to some degree. A few months ago a hacker going by the name of DJ Steve ported Android 3.1 Honeycomb to run on the tablet. Now he’s back, and this time he’s brought Android 3.2.
For the most part the new operating system looks like earlier builds of Honeycomb, but there are a few changes in Android 3.2 Honeycomb including:
- Third party applications can now automatically detect media stored on SD cards.
- There’s support for additional screen sizes.
- Apps designed for phones can now be stretched or zoomed to fill larger displays.
