O2 and Three have pledged to get Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, out to Samsung Galaxy S owners by the end of the month, after Samsung officially approved the update for release.
Galaxy S users in the UK with unlocked phones, not tied to any networks, should already have the update. However, those with handsets bought with a contract face a wait while their carriers complete own tests to ensure compatibility with proprietary services.
But in news to console Fandroids everywhere who’ve been frustrated by delays that network testing has caused to rollouts, both 3 and O2 have stated via their official Twitter feeds that they expect to send out the update to their customers by the end of the month.
Three tweeted: “It's been approved but will be a few weeks till it goes live. We'll let you know when it's live :-)”
And O2 was similarly optimistic, stating that it expects to be able to launch “later this month”.
Features the update will bring to Sammy’s hugely popular Android smartie include 720p video recording, Flash Player 10.1 and USB tethering and numerous performance optimisations.
