The waiting has finally come to an end for Indian owners of the popular Galaxy S Android smartphone, as Google decided to roll out the Gingerbread upgrade
The software upgrade was reported a few hours ago by several users who have already downloaded and installed the Gingerbread update on their Galaxy S smartphones.
Samsung India confirmed two weeks ago via Twitter that the Galaxy S
will be receiving Gingerbread towards the end of this month.
While everyone was expecting the update to be announced any day last week, few thought that it would be possible to receive it in the last day of the month.
Fortunately, the Android 2.3.3 upgrade is now available for download via Samsung Kies sync software for all users with unrooted Galaxy S devices.
Furthermore, it appears that the Samsung India also plans to release the Gingerbread upgrade for the original Galaxy Tab.
However, while the handset manufacturer confirmed that the next major software upgrade for the Galaxy Tab will be rolled out by the end of the month, it appears that it will take a bit more for Samsung to make it happen.
It's possible that the company had a busy schedule and preferred to release the Gingerbread update for the Galaxy S on time and delay the Galaxy Tab
Even though there's no mention about a possible delay of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the original Galaxy Tab, if the update is not deployed in the next 1-2 days, we should expect Samsung India to make some sort of an announcement via Twitter.
In other news, there are no updates about the Android 2.3 update for Indian customers who preferred the Galaxy SL, instead of the Galaxy S, which means the initial announcement, stating that the update will be deployed in the first or second week of July, is still valid.
