Samsung Galaxy S News Round-up

Douglas Carter

There has been lots of news regarding the Samsung Galaxy S going around lately. There are reports of Android 2.2 update timeframes for the Samsung Galaxy S in September and October. In other Galaxy S news, Vodafone has pushed out bloatware apps onto the Galaxy S, similar to the update that the HTC Desire received not so long ago. Meanwhile, back in the US, the Captivate and Fascinate are set to receive OTA updates.

In regards to the Android 2.2 update, Samsung Mobile Spain has confirmed that Android 2.2 is now on track to be released in late October. However, Samsung Mobile India contends that they will be releasing the update by the end of the month. T-Mobile UK further strengthens the September release date at the end of this month. Maybe Samsung Mobile Spain pushed the date back in order to give themselves more of a safety net in case a few more bugs are found.

Vodafone is making more of their customers disappointed with the way Vodafone is treating their Android community. According to Phandroid, Vodafone rolled out a branding update to the Galaxy S which contains uninstallable Vodafone 360 apps, which may or may not be removed from the handset, like what happened with the HTC Desire earlier.

In non-FroYo update news, the Samsung Captivate is receiving an OTA update and the Fascinate should be seeing an update, possibly as soon as tomorrow. Phandroid reports that the Captivate update, among other things, will fix the GPS problems, as well as bring Exchange support to the device. Android Central writes that several bug fixes for the Fascinate should be rolling out soon (possibly tomorrow) that include inproved email account to phone syncing and "faster switching from 3G to 1x RTT."
