Samsung Intercept users might be in for a treat tomorrow: Android Central has learned that the upgrade to Android 2.2 may be pushed to you at that time. Bug fixes include fixing force closes on messages, fixes for dropped call issues, and a fix to help you actually use Google.com. (Apparently, it didn’t work before. Irony, folks.) Wireless tethering has also been added, and you’ll be getting Telenav, as well. Not too shabby, but we wouldn’t expect live wallpapers and Flash to be part of the experience. Let’s hope I’m wrong. If things pan out, look out for the update starting tomorrow.
