Android 2.2 Update Now Shipping for Samsung Vibrant

Posted by at 5:27 pm on January 21, 2011

On Friday, T-Mobile  started to download Android 2.2 to Samsung Vibrant owners. On top of the new features in Android 2.2 (Froyo) features, the update adds T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi calling app. Android 2.2 enables many more official Google apps as well as Voice Actions, storing apps on microSD and other extras.

Not an Over the Air Update

The download is being pushed through Samsung’s Mini Kies app and needs a USB connection to the Galaxy S phone to push the upgrade. T-Mobile isn’tsending it over the air, at this time.

The Vibrant update is the first 2.2 upgrade for a Samsung phone in the US and follows several months after the phone first shipped. Samsung had promised an upgrade shortly after the smartphone arrived, but has been slower than HTC and Motorola in updagring their phones to Android 2.2
