Samsung Vibrant customers can upgrade their software for Android 2.1 Eclair to Android 2.2 Froyo and customers must download and install the Samsung Kies Mini software.Samsung Kies Mini software is only available for PC computers and Mac support is in development……
Samsung Vibrant users in particular can rejoice because Android 2.2 Froyo has begun rolling out.Some found it rather strange that wireless carriers in the US did not send the update over the air and there was no word from Samsung either on this. While each of the four prominent carriers in the US has a Galaxy S device in its offering he Vibrant (T-Mobile), the Captivate (AT&T), Fascinate (Verizon) and the Epic 4G (Sprint).It was curious that none came forth with the much-anticipated update.Some began wondering if the pre-loaded apps that each of these devices were offered with was an issue or if the carriers were reluctant to pay Samsung for the update and whether any of those was causing the inordinate delay.T-Mobile CMO Cole Brodman said that the update would be staggered over time.
