Android 2.3 Gingerbread hits Samsung Galaxy S on O2

Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, is available to download now for Samsung Galaxy S owners on O2, it has been confirmed.

The carrier announced that the latest smartphone version of Google’s OS is finally up for grabs via Twitter in response to a customer query. It’s not clear if the rollout is being staggered, but given that this seems to be fairly standard, we think it’s a fairly safe bet it will be.

To get it you’ll need to connect your smartie to your PC and download the update using Samsung’s proprietary download solution - Kies – making sure you back up your personal gen before you start just in case there’s an foreseen problem.

Features Gingerbread brings to Sammy’s blockbuster blower include an all-new virtual keyboard and improved copy and paste. Alongside those you’re also in line for some performance optimisations that make using the Galaxy S smoother and faster all-round.

Gingerbread arrives on the Galaxy S on O2 the best part of six months after it debuted on the Google Nexus S. The delay in getting it out to O2 branded Galaxy S handsets is no doubt attributable to time-consuming network testing and issues that arose getting the new iteration of Android to work with O2’s services.
