A couple of days ago, T-Mobile UK went and announced on its support forums that the update to Android 2.2 Froyo for the Samsung Galaxy S devices they’ve sold would be rolling out either that day via OTA, or yesterday via Samsung’s desktop software, Kies.
Well, two days have passed and there’s still no sign of the update anywhere. And earlier today, a T-Mobile rep posted an update to the same support forums saying that owners of T-Mobile-branded Samsung Galaxy S smartphones will have to wait until next week to get their taste of Froyo.
Here’s the full statement:
“Unfortunately the 2.2 update will not be available via KIES today as expected and Samsung have confirmed that FOTA will not feature as part of this update, but should appear at a later date.
Samsung are indicating the firmware will be made available at some point next week. We’ll keep you posted with further updates as we get them.”
So it looks like T-Mobile’s aim to get the update out via OTA was just a dream. It did sound like a bit of a stretch at the time, especially considering that no other update for the Galaxy S has ever been delivered through any means other than Kies.
Let’s hope that next week won’t just bring news of another delay, but the update itself. It is about time.
