Galaxy S Users In Europe Can Now Upgrade To Android Gingerbread

Samsung has started rolling out Gingerbread upgrade for its last year’s most successful mobile handset, Galaxy S. This will be done in a phased manner starting from Nordics, Netherlands, and Germany. And I believe gradually Samsung will bring all regions at par. It will be interesting to see how the latest Android version will improve Galaxy’s performance and how much of a difference it will make on the benchmarking tests. Also, this update is just about 15 days before Samsung’s 2011 flagship Android device, the Galaxy S II which will be available in the UK starting May 1. Will this update defer potential Galaxy SII up-graders and/or encourage new consumers to settle for a Galaxy S due to its low prices now? And ultimately cannibalize SGS2 sales?

It'll be interesting to see how this will improve Galaxy's performance

Samsung said its Android 2.3 update for the Galaxy S would come in mid-April and, by golly, it meant it literally. Sometime during the night between the 15th and 16th days of this month, the Korean manufacturer’s Kies servers started serving up a fresh portion of Gingerbread to Galaxy S owners in parts of Europe, and now reports are coming in of users successfully updating their Hummingbird-equipped handsets. It’s a limited rollout, benefiting the Nordic countries, Holland and Germany first, but we doubt Samsung will hold out on the rest of Europe for much longer. If you want to try your luck, boot up your Kies updating utility and pray to your nearest tech deity.
