Samsung Galaxy S Froyo update now live

November 5, 2010

The delayed update to Android 2.2 (or Froyo) for the Samsung Galaxy S is finally now rolling out.

It was supposed to emerge in mid-October, but better late than never, as they say. Samsung announced the availability of the upgrade, which can be downloaded via Kies, on Twitter.

Yesterday, the company tweeted: “Froyo starts rolling out today; everyone will have it by the end of Nov. To prepare, get the latest version of Kies.”

So there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to get it straight away, but it should definitely be with everyone in the next few weeks. Grab the latest version of Kies and check to see if it’s available yet.

The Froyo update brings a number of new features to the Galaxy S, including full Flash support and device tethering, along with Google Maps GPS navigation plus voice guidance. And an extra bit of zip in the speed stakes, too.
