It appears that some Dell Streak 7 (WiFi) owners have received an update to Android 3.2 Honeycomb in advance of the rumored October 7th release date.
As expected the update is said to factory wipe all data prior to the Honeycomb installation. The update appears to be rolling out slowly, I’m still waiting for the update for my tablet.
Early reports from users who have received the update on the Dell support forums have indicated problems with using the menu key on the home screen after the update. Others have indicated that the Dell 7-inch, 800×480 is inadequate for Honeycomb, explaining that the screen is too cramped.
We will report back once we receive the upgrade.

There is a lot to like about Dell’s 7-inch WiFi Android tablet. The Dell Streak 7 is a good performer: it packs an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and 16 GB of Internal Storage with support for up 32GB of additional storage via its memory card slot. It also features 5MP rear camera with flash as well as a 1.3 MP front-facing camera for video chatting. The tablet also includes Wifi 802.11 b/g/n and supports Bluetooth 2.1. At $399, it is relatively inexpensive.

I ran across this Logic Buy Deal which expires today for $299 (after factoring in the $100 gift card) thought it was a fantastic value, too good to pass up. I love the performance of the Nvidia Tegra platform. So I’m willing to roll the dice on the rumored Honeycomb update.
The Dell Streak 7 is powered by Nvidia Tegra T20 Dual Core processor (1GHz) and Android OS 2.2 Froyo and features WiFi, Bluetooth, 16GB storage, 1.3MP front and 5MP rear facing cameras, Adobe Flash 10.1 and more. (Look for our review soon)
