While it was rumored to not start until October 7th, it appears as though Honeycomb is now rolling out to some Dell Streak 7 owners. Though looking at the posts, we're not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing quite yet.

Some are reporting that it wipes your device clean, while others say it leaves all apps intact. A wipe would make sense, however, due to the nature of the upgrade.[snip]
I'm just now beginning to look into this. Rumor before was that only non-TMo tablets would get this update. Hopefully that can be corrected by some smart dudes (DJ Steve?) to allow it to run on TMo w/Data. Otherwise, I expect it to be corrected enough to allow peeps to run even the TMo version as wifi-only.

UPDATES BELOW AS I FIND THEM:
---

  1. CWR-flashable version of Wifi-only, not-rooted, major bugs - read about it before you flash! @XDA
  2. According to bluesy_92 @XDA, this is a Dell-modified version of an older Honeystreak ROM! Surprising and is giving me mixed feelings. Is this "cheap" by Dell or is this a compliment that they are adopting community-created software? Either way, I hope our community-driven ROMs are improved thanks to a Dell-created kernel!
  3. So far, it appears that Dell has NOT released the kernel source. Keep an eye here for any updates on that.
  4. Here is a link to a page with a download link from Dell. I'm not entirely sure exactly what you get from here, so be warned! (And yes, the Download Page for Honeycomb has a screenshot of Froyo. Well done, Dell!)
  5. StephenH (aka DJ Steve) has a flashable/rooted version up and running @TabletROMs.com

are you running this?
Yes and no. Kinda but not really.

This "official" release is simply a kanged version of an older version of the Honeystreak rom by DJ Steve/StephenH over at TabletRoms.com. I'm running the [R5] release of HoneyStreak and it works great! So essentially I have a rom similar to this "official" release but a different kernel. I think DJ Steve will be upgrading his kernel once Dell releases the source to it (he doesn't have kernel source right now).

Is yours the same as this one (the EU version) or are you getting a different version? Just curious since you're not displaying your location.
Nope, 100% official US. New York City.

Oh sweet! TMo or Wifi-only? I assume TMo if it's "OTA". Kick ass!
Wifi. They decided to not upgrade T-Mobile users.
