Google Updates Dell Streak, LG Star Launches in Korea

For those who have never heard of the Dell Streak –you missed out. This is probably one of the biggest Android smart phones to ever be released; both figuratively and literally. In many ways, the Streak is Dell’s top contending Android device. Sure, the electronics manufacturer has several handsets under its brand, but none could possibly match up to the Streak.

But as we said, the Streak is also big in size –literally. The device pops out a large 5 inch capacitive touch screen display. The screen provides users with plenty of space for accurate navigation and of course, gestures. The larger screen may sound bulky, but once you have the device in your hands, it is impressive how ergonomically sound the whole handset is.

Anyway, the big news about this equally big phone is the fact that Google has finally come out with the Android 2.2 Froyo update for the Dell Streak. The actual patch has yet to be put up online, but the official statement is that the Froyo patch will come out by the end of the week so it will not be too much of a wait for fans of the Android OS.

For those worrying about the large screen, do not worry, all that 5 inches with 480 x 800 pixels of visual joy is fully protected by Gorilla Glass. The handset also comes with 16GB of internal memory, a 5 mega pixel camera with auto focus and dual LED flash. 720p HD video recording will be supported with the upcoming patch. Lastly, the handset is running on Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon CPU.

In other Android news, the launch of the LG Star worldwide might not take too long now. The device has already been released in South Korea as the LG Optimus 2X. Hopefully, the Android handset powered by the Tegra 2 CPU will be available in local store shelves by the end of the holidays.
