Those are the headlines, happy now?

Here at HEXUS we try to avoid the kind of ‘single fact' stories that dominate web journalism as the struggle for your precious reads grows ever-more intense. But sometimes there's no getting round it, and this is one of those times.

Samsung has announced that its flagship Android smartphone - the Galaxy S - will receive an upgrade to the latest version of Android - 2.2, otherwise known as Froyo. But precisely when is yet to be determined. That's essentially it.

According to the Samsung Mobile Singapore site - spotted by Engadget - the roll-out will start in the Nordic countries and then speak like a pandemic to the rest of the world.

We did manage to add a bit of extra value to this story by getting a comment from Simon Stanford, MD of Samsung Mobile UK and Ireland: "Samsung globally today has announced that Android 2.2 (Froyo) upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S is available," he confirmed.

"The upgrade will give users access to new features, enhanced navigation applications and improved performance. In the UK market, we are currently in final stages with our testing to ensure the upgrade is as smooth an experience as possible. Further information in relation to roll out for our customers in the UK will be available early next week."

That really is it this time. Oh, alright then, one more little treat, which provided the sub-head, as it's Friday afternoon.

Very poor support from Samsung considering this is their number one phone and also a big step for them in the world of Android. Samsung have always been poor at supporting their phones too be honest. Look at the so called super phone ‘JET’ 12 months down the line and had very little support. Once made and sold , Samsung have moved on.

Shame…. as Samsung is a good maker of things electrical.

PS Galaxy was riddled with issues from day one, was not a well built phone, regardless of the sales figures and tech in it.

Well be grateful - Sony Ericcson are still trying to roll out 2.1 to the Xperia X10! Will not commit to 2.2 either!
Sony are worse than Samsung and Motorola. I wouldn't even buy Sony Ericcson phone in this age.
I want this phone sooooo much atm! :D. Samsung support isn't too much of an issue for me. XDA developers can wipe the floor with any OEM manufacturers ROM without breaking a sweat.
Way too much money to pay for a phone… Just because iPhone is ~£500 doesn't mean price has to be matched.

Greedy bastards!!

iPad (or any tablet) is ~£400 which you can justify (somehow!) but mobile phone? No way.
