AT&T: Froyo Update for Samsung Captivate Coming Feb. 24

Quote:
This Thursday AT&T will push an Android 2.2 firmware update for Samsung Captivate users, leaving Verizon's Fascinate as the only member of the Samsung Galaxy S family of smartphones still using Android 2.1.


On Wednesday @AT&T tweeted: "Captivate owners--the Android 2.2 upgrade is coming tomorrow! We'll post a link to install it as soon as we get it! http://go-att.us/g6yt"

Similarly, Samsung's @GalaxySsupport account posted: "Samsung and AT&T are pleased to confirm to #Captivate users that the Android 2.2 upgrade will be available tomorrow (2/24)."

As PCMag editor Dan Costa notes, Samsung's updates from Android 2.1 to 2.2 (Froyo) have taken almost a year, given that Google announced Froyo back in May 2010.

In January, Samsung and its carriers spent weeks embroiled in conspiracy theories over delayed Android updates. Many reports suggested Samsung purposely delayed software updates to nudge existing consumers into buying newer phones.

Following the controversy, T-Mobile was the first to upgrade to Froyo on a Samsung Galaxy S phone, Vibrant. On Tuesday Sprint announced a roadmap for 2.2 updates on Epic 4G. But there is still no sign of an update for the final member of Samsung Galaxy S, Verizon's Fascinate.

On Tuesday, Radio Shack announced a February trade-in promotion for all Samsung Galaxy S phones.

so...just out of curiosity, will they release an update to the KIES program so that it actually WORKS with Captivates? it took me a week to get the right drivers for my computer to recognise the phone, and KIES now claims it doesnt recognise my device :|
