T-Mobile Rolls Out Software Update For Samsung Sidekick 4G

Earlier this year, T-Mobile announced the Android powered Samsung Sidekick 4G. This handset runs on the Android 2.2 (Froyo) Operating System and it comes with a 3.5 inch touch screen WVGA display, 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, five-row QWERTY keyboard, 3 megapixel camera and more. T-Mobile has recently released a new software update for this device. Before you get too excited, let me tell you that, this is not the Android 2.3 update and it will not change your device OS to Gingerbread. This is just a minor update with performance and UI enhancements. Check out the complete changelog, after the break.
