Samsung has officially announced that it’s offering Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrades for no less than six of its devices, namely: Samsung Galaxy Tab (the original, 7-inch version), Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 (pictured below), Samsung Galaxy Gio S5660, Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670, and Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570.
The upgrades are made via the Kies software, and will be rolled-out starting mid-May (meaning right now) in “the UK and Nordic countries.” Not long after that, Samsung will bring Gingerbread to other European markets, plus North America, Asia, Africa, and the rest of the world.
We already knew that the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S would get Gingerbread, but I’m quite surprised that Samsung is also upgrading the Galaxy Ace, Gio, Fit and Mini smartphones (since they’re all mid to low-end devices). Anyway, that’s quite a nice surprise, isn’t it?
