Galaxy S users just can’t get a break. If it isn’t annoying GPS problems, its usually something to do with their insistence on using the shoddy at best Samsung Kies software to install software updates. Or it is complains about the actual update itself, as has been the case with the recently released Android 2.2 (Froyo) build for the Samsung Vibrant. Here is the word from the Samsung Facebook page:
“We are continuing to investigate issues that some users have reported while completing the upgrade to Android 2.2. In the interim, we are taking the extra precaution of temporarily suspending the upgrade as a download from Kies. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that clients contact 1-800-751-4078 or firstname.lastname@example.org if they have any further questions.”
Right now this seems to be only affecting the Vibrant, no word any other versions of the Galaxy S. It’s a shame the road to Android 2.2 has been so rocky, because the hardware in question is quite top notch. At least the Nexus S will get its timely software upgrades, right?
