One of our more common complaints at Lifehacker HQ is that Android phone updates don’t happen anywhere near as often as they should. The saga of the HTC Desire Froyo update ran for months. Will a promised update for the Samsung Galaxy S take as long?
Nick at Gizmodo (our go-to guy for hassling telcos about their snail-like upgrade policies) reports that Optus has said that a Froyo update for the Galaxy S will appear “in the coming weeks”. Given the elastic definition Telstra applied to “month” with the Desire upgrade, we’ll take that with a grain of salt. But I guess it does mean an update will appear eventually, as opposed to simply never happening.
