Samsung Galaxy S Finally Get Froyo Update

Sansung UK has announced that Galaxy S owners will get their fix of Froyo as from today with the Android OS 2.2 update expected to bring some much needed improvements to Samsung's flagship smartphone.

The company announced via Twitter that "Froyo starts rolling out today; everyone will have it by the end of Nov" before prompting consumers to download the latest version of KIES, Samsung's proprietary upgrading solution.

Froyo was announced back in September 2010 with the first unofficial update appearing online at the end of July 2010.

Then things went pear-shaped with Samsung saying that it would postpone the update until November although some countries had started to receive it as early as the 16th of October.

The new Froyo will bring voice-controlled GPS, faster performance, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and the ability to turn your phone into a wireless hotspot and save the apps to a memory card.

As for the phone itself, it is a 4-inch Android-based smartphone that comes with a 1Ghz processor, 512MB RAM, a 5-megapixel camera and more. The phone can be purchased on a two year contract for as little as £25 per month.
