Dell has started rolling out a software update for the Dell Streak 7 tablet. A handful of Streak 7 owners in the UK are reporting that they received a notice that an update as available and they’ve downloaded and installed the new software on their tablets.
The Dell Streak 7 features a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display and a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor. When it launched earlier this year, the tablet shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo — a version of Google’s operating system designed for phones rather than tablets.
At the time, Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system for tablets required devices to have higher resolution, 1280 x 800 pixel displays. But now that Google has added support for lower resolution screens we’re starting to see a number of Honeycomb tablets with 1024 x 600 pixel and lower resolution screens.
The Honeycomb update for the Dell Streak 7 makes it one of the first 800 x 480 pixel tablets to run Honeycomb. There’s no word on when the new software will be available in the US or other countries.
