Samsung Vibrant Android 2.2 Update Rolling Out Now; Epic 4G’s Update Coming Soon

There has been a lot of controversy about the Android 2.2 Froyo update for all the Galaxy S variants in the United States including the T-Mobile branded Samsung Vibrant. First, it looked like the update was being held back by Samsung so as to force’ its users to buy the upcoming Vibrant 4G.

Later on, rumors started flowing around that Samsung wanted to charge the carriers for the update and thus there was a tiff between (Samsung and carriers) them which was delaying the update. Samsung squished all the above rumors in an email and promised to release more information about the delay behind the update soon.

Now, T-Mobile has announced that they will start rolling out the Android 2.2 update for the Vibrant owners beginning from today i.e. 21st January itself. Since the update will be rolled out in an OTA form and in batches so Vibrant owners need to be patient for the update to hit their phones.

Hopefully, the carrier will keep its word and start rolling out the update from today itself.


Another U.S carrier Sprint has also announced that they are working on the Android 2.2 update for the Samsung Epic 4G. The carrier and the Korean company are working hard to release the update ASAP’ but will release it only after it meets all the rigorous’ testing standard of Sprint.

Hopefully, Sprint will also release the Android 2.2 update for the Epic 4G before the end of this month.
