Froyo finally coming to Samsung's Epic 4G and Fascinate
Good news for users of the Samsung Epic 4G and the Samsung Fascinate; in just a couple of weeks you will finally get an official update to Android 2.2 which we can all agree was way overdue.

Yes, there is a possibility that something will happen and the update will be delayed, again. This wouldn’t come as a surprise, as this is not the first time word of the Froyo update surfaced. Getting the update first is the Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint. It is said to be coming over-the-air on February 21st.

Following in its footsteps is fellow Galaxy S device the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon. The update for this device would come the next day, February 22nd. But once again, we have heard this before so try not to get too excited because it may just set you up for another letdown.

It has been months, but Froyo could finally find its way to a couple more Galaxy S devices. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

They're coming in OTA updates; do the users get to upgrade earlier via MiniKies the way the Vibrant users did? (And it really was plug & play..)

What about AT&T Captivate owners :(. I wouldn't even be able to use kies because I have a 64-bit windows 7 laptop.

Havent all you AT&T customers been listen to my rants about the X10 and AT&T not releasing the update to 2.1 even thought the update is global already. AT&T does not update is Android smart phones ever. 0% on all devices. So those of you even considering getting the Atrix think long and hard, are you satisfied with the device as it comes out the box? No? Then dont get it from AT&T. If you want a Android Smart phone with AT&T get it unlocked from the manufacturer and talk to your AT&T phone into give you money back for upgrading or just buying a new line.

Backflip got update from 1.6 to 2.1

So it's not 0%, but it's still pretty damn low

if you have any friends, family, etc. that are looking to buy a smart phone now or in the future, please beg them to not buy anything Samsung. they have treated this process like crap and instead of supoorting their millions of sold Galaxy S's they just want to shove new phones down our throats instead of updating their software like everyone else. DOWN WITH SAMCHUNG!!!!
