As of yesterday, those over in Canada have access to a couple sweet new updates for their Android devices. The Samsung Vibrant on Bell, SaskTel and Virgin Mobile is now Froyo ready, along with the Samsung Fascinate on Telus. Users will need the Kies Software to update their devices to 2.2, which is no big deal- just not as convenient as an OTA update. But we’re glad to see that at least someone is getting these updates. Maybe those of us in the states might get lucky before the years end.
Samsung Mobile Canada announced on their Facebook page that Galaxy S devices will be getting an update to Froyo (Android 2.2) soon. The Captivate on Rogers and the Vibrant on Bell are looking at December for their update while early 2011 is when the Fascinate on TELUS is expected. Good news for all Galaxy S users world wide as they are defiantly working on upgrading the models. I would expect the American versions to have a similar time frame although nothing has been announced just yet.
The Galaxy Apollo is seeing yet another launch after premiers on Orange UK, T-Mobile UK, and now on the wireless provider, Telus. The Apollo features a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 667 MHz processor, 3-megapixel camera, HSDPA, 3.6 Mbps, and up to 512MB of internal space. Telus customers can pick up the Apollo for $249.99 without a contract, and only $49.99 if you sign up for a 3-year contract.
