Froyo update for the Samsung Vibrant is expected to roll out starting tomorrow
Well, well, it looks like all those prayers have been answered as the Samsung Vibrant is finally about to get its well deserved dose of Froyo goodness. For a period of time there, owners were showing signs of frustration when it came down to the reasons why the handset has yet to see the light of this highly anticipated update.

However, everything is at a go as T-Mobile CMO Cole Broadman announced that the Android 2.2 Froyo update will commence starting tomorrow; January 21st. As with most other roll outs, the update will be pushed out slowly to handset owners over a period of a few weeks, but it'll nonetheless arrive to these patient owners.

So come tomorrow, be sure to check out your handset to see if you've got that notification waiting for you. Surprisingly, Broadman also mentioned that a technical issue was to blame regarding the long wait for the update – and no other reason aside from that one.

Well Well Well what a coincidence. It funny how one day after the story broke about how sammy was holding up the update because of money and greed you decide to release Froyo. The update is just up and ready to go like that? ha sammy? and we have been waiting for 6 months. I tell you what, sammy you can take that update and shove it up your Ass. Motorola here i come

Good News for all you Galaxy S TMobile Customers. For those of us AT&T customers no such luck. Captivate and Sony Ericsson X10A will never be updated. So socal50 you are gonna have to live with your 2.1 and all us X10A clients with 1.6 cause AT&T doesnt care about the customer.

Wow a lot of responses from other sties and blogs is ridiculous. I swear people do not understand programing what so ever just because it works on the Sammy Tab does not mean It will work on a device my lord. Linux is very specific and each kernel will be different.

hahahaha.. samsung and sony ericson just a money oriented manufactur, unlike htc, motorola or the great apple! both of them never think about CUSTOMER SATISFACTION! so, if you do not want to upset by their constrained again why you still buy their product ?

you know that they are only good at the beginning but very bad service at the end?

Sony Ericsson has the update ready to go. AT&T is blocking. So not SE's fault. The situation with Samsung was different as it could not be determined who was blocking the update. But now that the update is out. AT&T will still not get it.
