Gingerbread update for Samsung Galaxy S goes live across parts of Europe
Great news for all Samsung Galaxy S owners out there! Looks like the smartphone's official update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread is already rolling out in some parts of Europe, which brings hope that its release across the U.S. may happen in the near future. News broke out this weekend when the update was reportedly made available in several Nordic countries, the Netherlands, Germany, and the U.K., with the rest of Europe expected to follow pretty soon.

The update to Android 2.3 comes within the expected time frame and brings a long list of improvements, among which an overhauled on-screen keyobard, a sleeker user interface, and optimized power management. Installing Gingerbread onto your Galaxy S requires connecting it to a computer and running Samsung's KIES application where an update notification should pop up straight away. As far as when the update will go live for Galaxy S owners across the Atlantic, well, no exact date has been given yet, but it cannot be too far away. Until then, the geekier ones of our readers might want to try a leaked unofficial ROM instead.

Yes I agree, let’s just see that same hard work here in the U.S. Poor Galaxy S Fascinate, STILL on Android 2.1! That sucks so bad! I just don't get it!

I am aware of that, but the way many sites are separated from american sites and so on, i was in part not aware that this one was not, but predominately, I am sure that is what is on this web site.
