This piece of news is surely going to please a lot of Galaxy S owners in the U.K. Galaxy S owners need to use Samsung KIES software to update their handset to Android 2.2. Users can download KIES from this link. Samsung had earlier released the Android 2.2 update for Three UK and T-Mobile UK branded Galaxy S variants.

I seriously hope that Samsung will release the Android 2.2 update for the various Galaxy S variants in the United States before the year ends. Otherwise, Samsung sure are going to piss off a lot of Galaxy S owners in the States.

Three UK’s Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 Update Rolling Out Now

At the beginning of this month, we reported that T-Mobile UK has started rolling out the Android 2.2 update for the Galaxy S handsets in the U.K. Apparently, that did not happen and T-Mobile UK never released the update. Now, another carrier in the UK Three has started rolling out the Android 2.2 update for the Three U.K. branded Galaxy S handsets.

Galaxy S owners can update their handset using Samsung’s KIES software.

As a part of the update, the phone will be wiped clean of any data so users are suggested to make a backup of their data before proceeding with the update. The Android 2.2 update for the Galaxy S will bring many new features like performance enhancements, Flash 10.1 and a spiced up TouchWiz UI.

Hopefully, Samsung will release the Android 2.2 update for the Galaxy S handset series in the U.S by this year end.
