T-Mobile UK: Android 2.2 update for the Samsung Galaxy S may arrive today
Or at least that’s the goal. The announcement is, to put it mildly, quite interesting in word choices. So, the aim is to have the update out today. Now if you’re thinking that unlocked Galaxy S devices have been able to get the update for quite a while, you are, of course, right.
There’s an interesting twist however. T-Mobile, unlike any other carrier, is planning to issue the update over-the-air. Until now, all the updates to Froyo for the Galaxy S, including the one Samsung released for international and unlocked versions of the device, needed Samsung’s Kies desktop software to be run. But T-Mobile wants to at least in part alleviate its customers’ pain of being very late to the Galaxy S Froyo party by providing an update experience that is as painless as possible.
Even so, T-Mobile seems unsure of whether the OTA thing will work. In case it doesn’t, the update will be available through Kies tomorrow.
So either way, it looks like T-Mobile UK customers will be able to run Froyo on their Galaxy S superphones very, very soon.
