T-Mobile to fling Froyo at Samsung Galaxy S guys

Update coming this month

By Hard Reg, 22 Sep 2010

T-Mobile UK has confirmed that its Samsung Galaxy S smartphone customers will be getting Android 2.2 at the end of the month.

Curiously, it's not being delivered over the air, but rather through the Kies application Samsung ships with its handsets. That means you'll need a Windows PC on which to install Kies, download the update and transfer the new firmware to the phone.

And T-Mobile has confirmed that the update will only be made available through Kies - which makes us wonder if the OS is coming from Samsung itself rather than the operator. If is is, there's nothing on Samsung's support site yet. ®
