European Galaxy S To Soon Receive Gingerbread 2.3?

According to Samsung Mobile’s Romanian Facebook page, it appears that Galaxy S devices will be graced with the Gingerbread update by the end of March, and possibly along with European Galaxy S devices too.  This coincides with our earlier post about Samsung announcing several updates.  After translating the comment, our boys over at Android Central state that the post reads:


“The update to version 2.2.1 for Galaxy S will be available until 20 March, and Gingerbread (2.3) until the end of the month.”

I’d like to double check that translation, but I haven’t spoken Romanian in about….never.  So we’ll just take their word for it or check it out with Google Translate, later.  So, according to the comment it’s possible that Galaxy S devices could see the update on or by the end of that date.  I hate to say it, but if this pans out, we’ll have to retract some of our previous statements about Sammy and their update shenanigans.  Here’s to hoping the update does in fact arrive, as Samsung could use a little positive feedback for a change in the update department.  In addition to the Galaxy S, Samsung Romania has stated that two of their budget phones should also be receiving an update (2.2).  The i5500 Galaxy 5 and the i5800 Galaxy 3 will respectively receive the update on Mar 20th and Mar 31st.  Feel free to leave us your thoughts in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
