Samsung Captivate: Froyo Release Date Imminent or More Lies?

By Alan Ng - Feb 8, 2011

If you currently own a Samsung Captivate handset on AT&T you are probably wondering what an earth is going on between Samsung and AT&T, considering the fact that the official update to Android 2.2 Froyo has still not been released.

If you fall into this category, you’re going to be even more confused when we tell you that AT&T has been showboating the Captivate on their website running Android 2.2 Froyo in a series of user interface screenshots.

As reported from Phandroid, the Captivate has been demoed using Froyo on the support forums over at the AT&T website. Considering how many delays have taken place for Samsung’s collection of Galaxy S handsets, we’re not sure what to make of this.

Is this simply and error on Samsung’s part, or is this yet another indication that an update is on the way? Obviously, don’t get your hopes up on this until we hear official word from AT&T about this. You can view the support page at AT&T’s website here.

If you do own a Captivate and haven’t obtained Froyo via ‘other means’, let us know your reaction to this. Have you given up hope on the update or not?
