Gingerbread update for Samsung Galaxy S starts rolling out within weeks
It has become certain that Samsung is about to start officially rolling out Android 2.3 Gingerbread to its Galaxy S smartphones. Judging by the announcement made by a very reliable source, namely Samsung's Finnish website, first to be treated to an update are most probably going to be the Finnish Galaxy S owners with a projected release date by the middle of April. British carrier Three also tweeted that Android 2.3 is not far away from its Galaxy S smartphones either. The carrier stated that it is planning to make the update available for download within a “couple of weeks.”

The fact that an early build of Gingerbread leaked on the web not long ago, meant that the update's release may not be far off. It is not yet clear exactly when Gingerbread will start landing on Samsung Galaxy S smartphones and their incarnations across the pond, but be sure that we will let you know as soon as news breaks out.
