Samsung promised that all of their many Galaxy S smartphones around the world would receive the Android 2.2 "Froyo" update, and they have started making good on that promise. Countries in the Nordic region are the first to get an official taste of Froyo starting today.
Rollout to other European countries is expected to start soon, and then "Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Asia, North America, Africa and rest of the world" after that. With five million handsets to update, it's understandable it could take a while. Check out the list of fixes after the break.
