This image has no alt text

A Facebook post by Dell Streak UK is announcing that FroYo is heading to the UK “before the end of November”. While most users can expect to receive 2.2 by standard OTA, Engadget is reporting that Dell had a website up for a little while that may have allowed select Streak owners to download and manually install the update.

There is reason to take this with a grain of salt as there are no screen shots, that I’ve found, yet; but there are instructions for getting this up and running for those of you with a T-Mobile Tab. Just browsing over the instructions it doesn’t sound like anything for the weak of heart and I would give it a 6/10 on the brickable scale. However, phone calls on a device not meant for phone calls is pretty sweet and I can imagine the process being noobed down in the coming days and expansion of the supported hardware to cover the CDMA versions.

Here are the instructions from the fellows at XDA.

No idea how later updates will work too, so caveat emptor.
