Samsung Captivate Gets Android 2.2 Froyo: Announced On Facebook

When it comes to the Samsung Captivate, many of you have been waiting for a while for the Android 2.2 Froyo update to come through the wait is nearly over! We have just found this out through Phonedog’s Alex Wagner.

Wagner explains that the Froyo update for Captivate users will be available from tomorrow. As things stand there is no further information for the update, but AT&T are saying that there will be links to the update posted on the Facebook page linking to the Samsung site.

The Samsung site will have will have instructions on how to install the upgrade and that Dante Martin who is an Android Senior Project Manager is answering questions about the Android updates (check out the video at the end of the article). This news of the update leaves only one Samsung Galaxy device still running any Android OS pre-Froyo 2.2 and that is the Fascinate.

This means that the Epic, Vibrant and now the Captivate will all have been edged up the OS scale and hopefully the Fascinate will make it there too. Check us out tomorrow and we will report on the update and provide links to it for you. Alternatively you can keep track of what’s happening over on the AT&T Facebook page.

    Shame on Verizon for being the only carrier without an update available.
