Android 3.2 Honeycomb update on the way for Dell Streak 7 Tablets

When Google released Android 3.2 Honeycomb in July a new additions was expanded support for tablets with different sized display’s. Google built the first edition of Android Honeycomb, 3.0, around a 10.1-inch tablet named Motorola XOOM.

A smaller sized tablet that could use some of the Android 3.2 goodness is Dell’s Streak 7 tablet, the first 4G Android tablet in America. The Streak 7 has been on the market for the better part of the year with Android 2.x operating systems only, though. When if ever is Dell going to update the Streak 7?

According to the director of marketing for the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) small business channel, Erik Day, the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update is coming soon for Streak 7 owners. Day didn’t expound on just how soon the update will begin deployment OTA (over-the-air) to Streak 7 tablets around the world.

Erik Day passed the update news to Thinq UK at IFA 2011 where Thinq got to handle a few pre-release Dell Streak 7′s that were running Honeycomb 3.2 builds, here’s a photo:

Previously we had reported that Honeycomb would be making its way to Streak 7′s thanks to anonymous information, but this new report has physical proof to go along with their report. However this isn’t the first photo of a Honeycomb clad Streak 7 to hit the Internet, a shot of the Streak 7 running Honeycomb beside its other Streak tablet family members was posted online last month.
