Monday, Samsung Galaxy S users on British wireless carrier, Three, were able to download the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update to their devices via kies. Three was supposed to have the HTC Desire and HTC Desire HD updates to Gingerbread available as well, but had to pull the update at the last minute.
Three was trying to get Samsung Galaxy S owners to Gingerbread before the end of May, and albeit at the last minute, they still managed to do so.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, well here in the United States, none of the Galaxy S variants have been “officially” upgraded to Gingerbread and we struggled through a Froyo update with some users still left out in the cold.
It seems that Samsung has struggled with OTA updates and prefers to go the route of mini-kies which leaves mac and linux computer owning Samsung customers out in the cold.
