Samsung seems to be favoring Europe for releasing Android updates. After much delay, Samsung UK has finally announced that the Android 2.2 aka FroYo update for Samsung Galaxy S is now available on its support site. The update is available for all Samsung Galaxy S devices irrespective of their carrier. Galaxy S in Canada has also received the upgrade. However, Samsung UK is still about 2 month behind other European countries in providing the update. Countries such as Norway and Sweden had received the taste of FroYo a couple of weeks earlier.
The new update will bring pinch to zoom functionality on the home screen to one of the best-selling Samsung smartphone. FroYo also comes equipped with a brand spanking new Gmail app and better Exchange support. Apart from this, there will also be a new default keyboard. Well, UK may have been a little behind other European countries in getting the FroYo upgrade, but you can take solace in the fact that Galaxy S in the US are still pining for their share of FroYo.
