Official Android 2.2 Froyo update for Samsung Galaxy S finally available

Samsung seems to have finally launched a Froyo 2.2 update for its hugely successful Galaxy S smartphone.

According to BriefMobile, Swedroid and this thread at the XDA developers forums, an official Froyo build (I9000 JPM) is being pushed to Galaxy S owners in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

The update is made via Kies and, hopefully, other countries will get it soon, too.

The 2.2 Froyo update brings:

  • Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support
  • Speed improvements
  • GPS fix
  • Enhanced default keyboard
  • Slightly enhanced graphics and transitions
  • Media Hub
  • New Search widget
  • New Gmail app
  • Better Exchange support
  • Support for MP4 video recording

So, anyone around here actually got the update?

Update: Samsung has officially confirmed that Android 2.2 Froyo “will be available from the mid of October 2010 in the Nordic region and gradually rolled out to other European markets, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, North America, Africa and rest of the world.”
