Android 2.3 Gingerbread to hit Samsung Galaxy S ‘end of May’ on 3

Samsung Galaxy S owners on 3 can look forward to an OS bump to Gingerbread at the end of the month, the network has announced.

The carrier confirmed via Twitter that it expects to push out Android 2.3 to the handset imminently in response to a customer query.

This month is also expected to see the Gingerbread version of Google’s platform land on the HTC Desire S and Desire HD on 3, pending network testing.

Although Gingerbread isn’t hugely different to the 2.2 version of Android, AKA Froyo, that currently powers the Galaxy S, it’s most definitely not be sneezed at either.

New features it brings to the phone include an improved touchscreen keyboard, better copy and paste and performance optimisations for a slicker smartphone experience all-round.

If you’re lucky enough to have an unbranded phone purchased sans contract, you won’t have to wait long for the update at all, after Samsung announced it is making it available any day now via its proprietary download solution Kies.

The new version of the OS is also coming to unlocked versions of Samsung’s Galaxy Mini, Gio and Fit, as well the Galaxy Tab in months to come.
