Samsung Galaxy S to get Android 2.2 upgrade

Amongst all the excitement of the iPhone 4 launch, the Samsung Galaxy S sneaked onto UK shelves courtesy of Vodafone as a network exclusive. Well, there's now another reason to buy it - the handset is being upgraded from Android 2.1 to 2.2 in the near future.

How near? That we don't know, but according to Engadget, the company used Twitter last night to announce that 'Galaxy S phones will come with Android 2.1 and be upgradeable to Android 2.2 which will support Adobe Flash 10.1'. So let's just say you'll have the joys of BBC iPlayer, Flash and a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot in the not-too-distant future. Should be a nice surprise one morning when you least expect it.

It's not a bad handset either, complete with a four-inch WVGA super AMOLED touchscreen, Qualcomm's 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and a five-megapixel camera with HD. If you want one now, Vodafone is offering the handset 'free' on a £35, 24-month price plan, which includes 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of mobile data.
