The Dell Streak was originally launched in the United States with Android 1.6 onboard. Dell had stated that the phone-cum-tablet crossover will directly get the Android 2.2 update in the States and skip the Android 2.1 update. A leaked Android 2.1 U.K build of the Dell Streak has been floating around on the Internet for many days which allows Streak owners in the United States  to enjoy Android 2.1 on their device.

Here is the official statement from Dell itself.
