Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 Update Is Here!

Looks like Samsung has released the official Froyo firmware for the Samsung Galaxy S. Many users over at XDA-Developers are reporting that they have been able to update their handset to the official Froyo FW (JP6) via KIES. Early reviews suggest that the lag issue which was present in nearly all the Android 2.1 FW is still present. Hopefully, this firmware update will fix the GPS issue which has been plaguing the Galaxy S from the start. Samsung_Galaxy_S
