Samsung Updates Galaxy S1, Fixes Key Features

The Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.3 update has been confirmed by Vodafone, a report revealed.

According to an Engadget (opens in new tab)report, the update has already been released in Germany, Netherlands and the Nordic countries.

Earlier Samsung announced that the updates for its Samsung Galaxy S were due to arrive sometime in mid-April. Now that the update is out, many users are saying that Samsung has delivered what it had promised and that these updates resolve key technical issues.

While the update is unlikely to be massive in size, a streamlined user interface, a more reliable copy-paste facility and an improved download management system are almost guaranteed.

Users need to connect the phone to their PCs using a data cable, and then run Kies to install the updates. Kies can be downloaded from the official Samsung Apps websites, but it has been reported that some users failed to connect Kies during the installation of a previous update.

This update to the Samsung Galaxy S1 comes as the Galaxy S2 is about to hit the market, demonstrating a clear commitment to customers, even those who don't insist on the using the very latest gadget, an important sign for customers looking to buy a new mobile.
