The Samsung Galaxy S


Good news for users of Samsung’s 2010 flagship device! The Galaxy S’s Gingerbread update is rolling out to consumers of the Android smartphone in Europe – and hopefully the rest of the world will follow.


Samsung’s Super AMOLED 4” screened device was one of the most popular phones in the Android lineup last year. However, it did take some flak with consumers because of the company’s sluggish update pacing – or at times complete abandonment of phones before they even get updates. The Galaxy S launched with Android 2.1 Éclair last year – and it took some time to even get to Android 2.2 Froyo. This time, it looks like Samsung is responding to the criticism, and is giving their phone some extra longevity by upgrading the Galaxy S into Android 2.3 Gingerbread.


There are no reports as of yet to say that the update has reached us here in the Philippines, but if you’re an owner of one of these smartphones, give the Kies software a check in the weeks to come. Maybe you’ll just find an update waiting to spruce up your Google phone once more.




Update: As of April 19, 2011, the Galaxy S Gingerbread update has been unapproved by Google due to some issues and is now removed from distribution. (Souce: Engadget) Well that, we say, kinda sucks.
