Samsung may be ready to rollout the latest iteration of Google’s operating system to unlocked Galaxy S smartphones, but it seems that the update won’t arrive to contract handsets in the UK until November.
The smartphone maker has officially announced that the update will be downloadable for SIM free versions of the Galaxy S through its proprietary Kies synchronisation software. However, those using the handset on a contract will have to wait at least a few more weeks as networks continue to test the update for compliance and quality assurance.
T-Mobile confirmed on its official forum that it is “making some changes to get it working better when using Orange signal” under the carriers’ newly announced network-sharing agreement, and are “looking to release the update by the end of November”.
O2, meanwhile has told CNET UK that it will also be bringing the update to its customers "later in November", but did not mention any specific reasons for the delay.
Android 2.2, AKA, Froyo comes with 720p video recording, Flash Player 10.1 and USB tethering, plus numerous performance optimisations.
