Samsung Provides Android 2.2 (Froyo) Update To AT&T Captivate

It's tough to believe just how many months ago we reviewed Froyo. It was sunny, summer evening in 2010 when Android 2.2 began hitting the Nexus One, and now, over half a year later, some phones are still awaiting the update. Samsung's Galaxy S line has been a huge hit for the company, with over 10 million units sold worldwide and a version on every major carrier in the U.S. But for whatever reason, Froyo has been very slow to come to these phones. AT&T's version has been left Froyo-less for quite a long while, but it looks as if the company is hoping to correct that.

The Froyo update for the Samsung Captivate (AT&T's version of the Galaxy S) is finally upon us. Updating your phone isn't a total cakewalk, but at least Samsung provided a step-by-step guide on how to do it. The details are down in the via link, but at the very least, you'll need your phone, a USB cable and a PC with Internet. And maybe a little luck. But hey, at least you'll come out with Android 2.2!

Never mind the fact that some phones are already sporting Android 2.3...

Some of the Froyo features include:
·         USB Tethering
·         Mobile Hotspot
·         Flash 10.1 Support
·         Enhanced Microsoft Exchange Support (Auto-Discovery, Global Address list look-up, Increased Security Features,  and Exchange Calendars)
·         Speed and Performance Optimizations
·         Ability to Install Apps Directly to SD card
