It appears that there may be some problems with the Android 2.1 update O2 has pushed out to the Dell Streak as apparently visitors to both the O2 and Dell forums are furious and reporting the update has “crippled the Dell Streak.”
According to an article over on Electric Pig by Mic Wright, one of their readers, KilnClose has flagged the issue with the Android 2.1 update with…“Don’t do it – once again a major player in the market has rolled out something without checking it – not only will it wipe your phone clean of any data it then refuses to sync with PCSuite – and if you think you can go back to 1.6 think again.”
More Dell Streak users have apparently reported that the update has caused problems with Windows Media Video playback along with causing malfunctioning accelerometers constantly flashing buttons and the removal of the Facebook widget.
Apparently O2 forum user, Alistair Gill says that O2 has said the Dell Streak syncing issue after updating to Android 2.1 is down to Dell not updating the software. However apparently dell has promised to push out a new Android 2.1 update for the Dell Streak which will fix the problems although they didn’t give an actual date as to when to expect that update.
So, any of our readership who own a Dell Streak experienced these issues after updating to Android 2.1? If so feel free to shout out in our comment s area below.
