Earlier this week, we stated how it was ‘good news’ that the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S update to Android 2.2 Froyo was coming in October. However, we’ve been notified that the update has already been long overdue.
Samsung Galaxy S owners have the right to feel a little aggrieved that their stock device will not be upgraded to Froyo until late October at the earliest. Furthermore, that late October prediction came via Samsung’s Spanish Facebook page, so it still hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.
This situation is similar to the situation that Nexus One owners faced, as they had to wait quite a while before Google updated their devices with Froyo. Since the Galaxy S is the stock device unlike the various offsprings for AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint, you would like to think that the stock device will receive Froyo before the Captivate, Fascinate, Vibrant and Epic 4G.
Firstly, are you disappointed with the length of time this is taking to push out a simple update? Are you starting to regret buying the stock Galaxy S? We’ll hopefully be able to bring you more details on this situation soon.
Hang in there.
