Samsung Postpones Android OS 2.2 UK Rollout For Galaxy S

Samsung has yet again delayed the launch of Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) for its popular Galaxy S smartphone, according to a post on the official Samsung Mobile UK mobile Twitter account.

The guys at Samsung say that the upgrade will be available from early November with all mobile network operators despatching it by the end of November.

Last week, Samsung published a press release saying that the update would be available soon as some Galaxy S handset users have already started to receive the update via Samsung's own KIES application.

Obviously, this is slightly controversial because it is yet another unwanted (and unwarranted) delay which may be linked to what some have called the poor performance of the KIES.

Froyo is the last major Android upgrade before version 3.0, otherwise known as Gingerbread, floods the market later this year. Froyo will bring voice controlled GPS, faster performance and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 compatibility.

The Galaxy S can be purchased for as little as £315 on O2 and we've seen it going for as little as £25 per month on a pay monthly package on T-Mobile.
