Samsung Galaxy S  & Xperia X10 Android updates due Nov 15th on O2?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and Samsung Galaxy S owners can expect to be bumped to a new version of Android on November 15th, a mysterious screengrab suggests.

The date was apparently leaked in an image of what appears to be an internal network newsletter uncovered by Android Central which was passed to them an anonymous tipster.

Either way, when the update does arrive Galaxy S owners will be first in line for Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, which brings a host of smart new features to the handset including 720p video recording, Flash Player 10.1, USB tethering and a raft of performance optimisations.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 upgrade will see the standard X10, X10 Mini and Mini Pro jump from the ageing 1.6 version of Google’s operating system to the rather more modern 2.1 version, also known as Éclair.

Users of SE’s smarties can expect to get interactive live wallpapers, a revamped app launcher and additional homescreens, giving them much more room for shortcuts, widgets and apps.

Although, Samsung officially released Froyo for the Galaxy S last week, the upgrade must first pass O2’s network testing before being pushed out. However, users of unlocked Galaxy S mobiles should be able to get the update right now.
