Samsung has begun to roll out Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’ for its Galaxy S handset. It is being released first into the Nordic region before being gradually rolled out to European areas and then the rest of the world.
The software will appear in the Samsung Kies Software manager, so will require plugging in to a computer rather than as an over-the-air update. However, it is currently not available for Mac users as only the PC version has been updated. TrustedReviews has installed Kies and plugged in a Samsung Galaxy S and can confirm that the update has not appeared in the UK as yet, so patience is the name of the game for eager owners.
Android 2.2 promises speed increases, Adobe Flash 10.1, a pinch-to-zoom home-screen flyover and a in browser search facility for Google and Wikipedia, and Dictionary, amongst other tweaks.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab will ship with Android 2.2 preinstalled, and will be available from 1 November, though you’ll need £599 rattling around in your pocket to pick one up SIM free.
