Finally after a lot of delays and being stuck on Froyo for ages, Samsung is giving the still-formidable Galaxy S the Android 2.3 Gingerbread treatment.
Same goes for the Galaxy Tab and other Galaxy phones such as the Ace, Gio, Fit and even the basic mini. But that’s not the complete lineup of Galaxy phones that we have in the market? There’s no word for the QWERTY-toting Pro and Galaxy 551 as well as their first entry-level Android which is the Galaxy 5 nor the long-forgotten Spica.
The upgrade from Froyo 2.2 to Gingerbread 2.3 offers an even greater user experience, with features including:
- Faster Performance ““ Multimedia content now has a lower CPU consumption rate, while support for more powerful 3D Graphics enables an enhanced mobile gaming experience.
- Upgraded Usability ““ The user interface has been improved, enabling faster access and control and a more intuitive user experience. Users will also benefit from improved copy-and-paste functionality.
UK and Nordic countries will get first dibs on the upgrade which will be available mid-May via Samsung Kies. Expect the rest of the region, including Southeast Asia, soon after that. I’m hoping for a late May or early June.
