Android 2.2 Froyo update for the Samsung Galaxy S will be unleashed this month
The cooler weather isn't preventing the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 from slowing down with sales, but the onset of fall is surely going to pack an enticing treat for those who've been enjoying their handsets for quite some time. As we've seen a few devices already receiving the Android 2.2 treatment, like the Motorola DROID X and HTC EVO 4G, the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 will be getting its dose very shortly – specifically, it'll be ready this month.

Samsung officially announced the good news in a press release, dated October 18th, that the Android 2.2 update for the Galaxy S I9000 will include a host of features. Some of the expected goodies include Adobe Flash Player 10.1, search within the web browser, faster performance by JIT (Just In Time) compiler, and voice-controlled GPS through Google Maps with Navigation.

In the press release, it states that the update will “be available from the mid of October 2010 in the Nordic region and gradually rolled out to other European markets, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, North America, Africa and rest of the world.”

Naturally, consumers shopping around for their next handset will probably want to keep the smartphone in mind now that it's going to get the jump with Android 2.2 Froyo. As for the many variants of the Galaxy S out there, no word was given in the press release about their potential update.
