A Twitter post has given fresh credence to rumours that the latest, tastiest version of Android to date, aka Gingerbread, will be hitting Samsung Galaxy S handsets imminently.
Or at least that's if a chap called Frank Feil is to believed. According to a Tweet from our Frankie: “Samsung Galaxy S bekommt im März Android 2.3 Update”, which thanks to our firm grasp of the German language means that an update to Android 2.3 is coming to the Galaxy S in March.
Although we can’t be sure if this only applies to German Galaxy S handsets, it’s a pretty safe bet that the UK should be able to get onboard shortly after if not at the same time as our friends from the continent.
Gingerbread would bring the Galaxy S up to date with the likes of the Google Nexus S and a flood of Android smarties announced at the Mobile World Congress earlier this month. HTC recently announced that its Desire line-up of smarties would also be getting in on the fun with an update due to release in Q2.
Standout features of the smartphone-tailored version of Android include a new and improved on-screen keyboard, enhanced copy and paste functionality, various UI tweaks, support for SIP internet calling and multiple cameras, improved power management, and last but not least, integration with Near Field Communications technology which turns your phone into a electronic wallet for making contactless payments much like the Oyster Card.
