Nordic countries like Denmark and Norway, along with many more, will be happy to hear that their Samsung Galaxy S can be upgraded to Android 2.2 Froyo today via Samsung Kies.
We’ve yet to hear that the update is being sent out over the air, so until we hear otherwise, we suggest you download Samsung Kies to get your Froyo on.
Samsung Kies is a program that will allow users to upgrade to the newest version of Android, as well as sync photos and other media to your phone from your computer. You might remember the Kies program from the Vibrant update that was supposed to fix the GPS issues that plagued many users, only to have T-Mobile tell us to avoid the update. Well, it’s back and this time around it’s ok to use the program.
Samsung highlights some of the core features you can can expect from the update,
- Google MapsTM with Navigation: GPS navigation system with voice guidance
- Adobe Flash Player 10.1: Allow the web browser to make full use of the whole web
- Setup Wizard: Quickly customize the Galaxy S and access networks with ease
- Home Screen/Menu Preview and Edit : Preview by pinch-zoom
- Search in-Browser : Google, Translate, Wikipedia, Dictionary
Nothing too new here, but all features are welcomed. What’s most interesting is the “Home Screen/Menu Preview and Edit : Preview by pinch-zoom,” as that sounds very similar to what HTC has done with its Leap feature – we’ll take it!
Anyone update to Froyo on their Galaxy S yet? If so, how’s it treating you?
