Samsung may finally be getting some love
Users in Spain who bought Samsung's original Galaxy S phone will soon be upgraded to the latest Android operating system, which is the first optimistic sign for Samsung owners who have been waiting for the update.

Samsung has posted a message on its Spanish Facebook page noting that Galaxy S users will be getting Froyo in "late October." This is the first time the company has made any official announcement about when any of its phones would be getting the update.
In the US, "Galaxy S" is not the name of a phone but rather an entire platform of smartphones. AT&T's Captivate, Verizon's Fascinate, T-Mobile's Vibrant, and Sprint's Epic 4G are all part of Samsung's Galaxy S line.
But up until now, these high-end devices haven't received any love from Android. Meanwhile, most of the other recent Android devices have gotten the update - including nearly every Droid device, HTC's Evo 4G and Google's Nexus One.
Because all of the Galaxy S phones are very similar with their internal framework, it's unknown if the entire line will be updated in the US at once, or if we'll have to undergo the painstaking one-by-one rollout that has been seen with the rest of the Android phones.
