Finally we have some concrete word from T-Mobile about the status of the “FroYo” Android 2.2 update for its Samsung Galaxy S. It looks like it will arrive today, with T-Mobile the first network to offer the Galaxy S update over-the-air rather than through Samsung’s pretty awful KIES desktop sync tool.
Here’s what T-Mobile has just said regarding the Galaxy S update:
Thanks a lot for all your patience regarding the Galaxy S froyo update.
Our handset team have been working closely with Samsung regarding this update and future updates and would like to share their news with you.
Our goal is to make the update process smoother and we are working to become the only mobile operator offering FOTA (Firmware over the Air) updates for the Samsung product range. The aim was and still is to have the FOTA update available at some point today. If for reasons outwith our control we are unable to have a FOTA update process fully functioning by close of play today, then we will make the update available for download via Samsung KIES tomorrow (Dec 1st)
Interesting that T-Mobile itself isn’t particularly sure that issuing the FroYo update for the Galaxy S over-the-air will work or not!
God speed, all Galaxy S owners on T-Mobile. Our thoughts will be with you this evening.
