Samsung Galaxy S Froyo (Android 2.2) Update beginning to make the rounds!
 
Samsung Galaxy S: Android 2.2 Froyo Finally Arrives | UK Gadget and Tech News, Reviews and Shopping

Seems as of yesterday users of the SIM free SGS in UK have been getting the firmware update. However looks like the rest will be getting it next Thursday. However I believe there is a registry hack for Samsung Kies which might let you update your SGS before that date.

Anyways looking forward to what 2.2 brings, that and being able to watch flash videos and the such will be nice.

Would be nice from samsung to get 2.3 on the Galaxy S to apologize for the delay!
Nice find thorn.

Well, looks like us Canadian folk will have to wait till mid December for froyo on the SGS, from Samsung Canada's FB page:

They need to release a custom version which incorporates all of the idiotic application locks the telecom companies here want on phones they sell.

Word.

That's why the Dell streak, a brand-new 5-inch tablet/phone, is stuck at Android 1.6 for the moment :doh:

That's what xda developers is for ;-)
If my wife let me touch her galaxy s, it would already run a froyo variation, without all the crapware from samsung.

I will wait until the official one comes out, that way they can make custom ROMs with the proper modem and all that (with some ROMs you lose the 850 band). My phone does not seem to suffer from the issues people have, likely due to it being from a more recent production batch, the only thing I was really looking forward to was flash support.

Well, try the skyfire browser for now, which has flash "build in".
They hopefully fix the GPS issues with their upcoming froyo update as well.
