Samsung Galaxy S getting Android 2.3 Gingerbread update in March

February 28, 2011, By Alex Ion

Adding to the Android update drama, it looks like the Galaxy S is now supposed to get Android 2.3 Gingerbread, sometime in March.

Those of you who are familiar with the case, know that there are plenty of Galaxy S smartphones still running Eclair and not getting their share for Android 2.2 Froyo — although it was meant to be available since last autumn.

And now they tell us Gingerbread will be available in less than a month.

For some reasons, I find it very hard to believe.

Our source is a Twitter message in German, citing the manufacturer at an event for Samsung bloggers in Frankfurt. According to the company, the European Galaxy S is going to get the update first — so it’s not only German users, but they’ll probably be – along with Britons – the first to have it.

What about the US market (Can you say, Vibrant, Captivate, Fascinate or Epic 4G)? It looks like a timely release for Android 2.3 is unlikely. So why not go for the Galaxy S 2 instead, as it’s slated for release next month as well.

Do you think Samsung, for once, will be capable of releasing Gingerbread on time?
