Following on from our initial reports on the recently announced Samsung Transform handset for customers on Sprint, we now have some information regarding the availability of Android 2.2 Froyo on the handset.
If you didn’t already know, you’ll be disappointed to hear that the Samsung Transform will only be shipping with Android 2.1 Eclair.
Samsung didn’t give a reason for the ommision of Froyo, but did confirm in their official press release that the update to Android 2.2 would be happening before the end of the year. Considering we are now in October, that is better than nothing for Sprint customers we feel.
Personally though, I like to enjoy Froyo out of the box, which is probably why handsets such as the T-Mobile G2 are proving to be very popular at the moment. Let us know your thoughts on this.
Are you disappointed that you have to wait a few months for Froyo on the Samsung Transform? The handset itself is due for release on October 10.
