Samsung Continuum Getting Android 2.2.2 Froyo Update

Samsung Continuum owners are getting some update love today in the form of two updates. The first update upgrades Android to Froyo itself (software version EB01) and the second update includes some improvements, one of which is the ability to run Flash Player 10.1. The phone arrived late 2010, and if you own one of these interesting phones I’m sure you thought all hope for an update was lost. But finally you can be excited! Even if it is only Froyo. And 2012. Official update notes after the break.
