What excactly do the designers at dell do whilst planning the next release?
Visit forums like this.
There a lot of owners using the streak as a mp3 player: OK we'll put a stop to that by removing any decent volume
Ok there's a lot of owners using rebel sim to bypass the unlock: we'll put a stop to that with 2.2
There's a lot of 1.6 users utilising the 5' screen size: we'll put a stop to that with 2.1 and design it so you can fit less icons on a screen
And when we release 2.2 we'll release it with something called stage which wastes even more of the 5' screen size

Lol. Now that's a rant.

I haven't had the streak all too long but it's a fantastic device. . The volume control is really low. But I'm sure Dell will fix it if we head on over to their forums or something. Possibly put in a ticket? I'm going to open a support ticket this week because there are a ton of apps on the market that give me an error 18 message which pisses me off. But I guess I'll open a ticket for this too. Haha.

It is a fantastic device, but dell seems to be going out of their way to change all that.

Maybe simply its a byproduct of 2.2 on their specific hardware. Well have to wait and see.I suppose. :)

Gutted, just bought a 2nd gen xmi mini speaker, it sounds truly unbelievable with any other audio device but can hardly hear it with the streak. It's like they've put some avls volume limiter on to save our ears using headphones, it sucks.
Does anyone know of any way to over ride this?

Seems I'm not the only one with this problem. I can hear my surroundings using an in ear set with the streak on PowerAMP max preamp.
Hope someone can find a fix for this...

Anyone know how to boost the volume?

From what I understand through extensive research on the matter, the only way app based volume boosters will work is if you are running a rom which has kernel changes to allow the apps to modify sound.

Did this ever get fixed? Can't find anythng positive in search.
The pathetic volume from the earphone jack makes the Streak useless as a media tablet - one of its prime selling features!
