Samsung Galaxy Beam Gets Snubbed, No Android 2.2

Buy an unpopular phone, don't expect update support

Samsung Galaxy Beam Gets Snubbed, No Android 2.2
 
 

Even though Samsung's Galaxy Beam has the hardware capabilities to run Android 2.2, it won't receive the update because the user base is too small.

It's an unfortunate sign that shows just how difficult it is to actually roll out the update to a specific phone. The Galaxy Beam was only ever launched in Singapore and didn't really get too much attention.

The "customer base is too small to justify for the allocation of dedicated resources at HQ," said Samsung, confirming the device wouldn't get an Android 2.2 update. It launched with Android 2.1 pre-installed.

As such, it's widely believed the electronics company has stopped production of the device.

Although it doesn't affect Android customers in larger markets like the US and Europe, it goes to show that Android updates aren't a guarantee. It makes us wonder how many legacy phones in the US could be updated to Android 2.2 but aren't because it's not worth it.

So far, actually, no Samsung phone has been upgraded to Android 2.2. However, the company has promised that all of its Galaxy S devices will get the update at some point. Hopefully.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
