Are US Galaxy S Devices Finally Getting Froyo?

December 30, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

When news broke that Galaxy S owners in Canada were finally getting Android 2.2 pushed to their Vibrant and Fascinate phones, US customers naturally wondered when they would begin seeing their updates.

The answer seems to be, not yet.

Talk Android got a tip that some Samsung product pages were displaying the devices as having Android 2.2.

If you happen to be a Galaxy S owner then this probably looked like promising news. However, it turned out to be either a typo or a cruel joke because the product pages for the Fascinate, the Vibrant, the Epic 4G as well as the rest of the Galaxy S line are all showing Android 2.1 as the OS for at least the time being.

Samsung still hasn’t committed to a release date for 2.2 for US devices, which has caused some to speculate that they may forgo Froyo and go straight to Gingerbread.

What do you think? Is 2.2 even worth having now that Android 2.3, Gingerbread, is out?
