Samsung Vibrant Froyo Upgrade Coming Jan. 21
An Android 2.2 upgrade for the Samsung Vibrant will roll out to
subscribers starting on Jan. 21, T-Mobile’s chief marketing
officer Cole Brodman confirmed to PCMag today.
The upgrade will come in waves, so not all Vibrant owners
will receive it on the first day, Brodman said.
But everyone should have it within a few weeks.
The Android 2.2 upgrade brings several new features,
most notably increased speed. Samsung’s delay in updating
its flagship phones has been the subject of intense discussion
on the Internet over the past week, with many Galaxy S owners
expressing anger at Samsung’s lack of communication about the delay.
So what was the hold-up? It was purely technical, Brodman said—it wasn’t
about marketing, payments or sales. Samsung sent its base 2.2 upgrade to
T-Mobile in late November, and with the holiday season, it’s taken until
now for T-Mobile to work out the kinks and integrate its own features.
“It was a quality control and timing issue,” Brodman said. “The biggest
challenge is integration and customization.”
In the future, T-Mobile aims to update all of its phones to new versions
of Google’s Android OS within 3-5 months after Google makes the OS version public,
Brodman said. The delay comes from having to integrate manufacturer skins
and T-Mobile’s own features, such as Wi-Fi calling.
Smartphone users expecting frequent upgrades is “new to us,” Brodman said,
“and we’re going to have to step up and change the way we do things.”
US Cellular said recently on Facebook that the Froyo upgrade for its Samsung
Mesmerize would come in “March.”
