Samsung announced Android 2.3 availability for several Galaxy devices.

Samsung Electronics today announced the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) upgrade to the Samsung GALAXY S, GALAXY Tab, and GALAXY Ace/Gio/Fit/mini. Gingerbread makes your Samsung Android phone faster and improves the user interface.
The upgrade from Froyo 2.2 to Gingerbread 2.3 highlights include:

  • Faster Performance – Multimedia content now has a lower CPU consumption rate, while support for more powerful 3D Graphics enables an enhanced mobile gaming experience.
  • Upgraded Usability – The user interface has been improved, enabling faster access and control and a more intuitive user experience. Users will also benefit from improved copy-and-paste functionality.

The Android 2.3 upgrade will start with GALAXY S in the UK and Nordic countries from mid-May, and gradually rolled out to other European markets, North America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, Africa and rest of the world according to the regional plan.
The upgrade will be available via Kies, Samsung’s device management software. Kies can be downloaded from Samsung’s corporate website.

The Gingerbread Android Update was first available last December on the Nexus One. Took Samsung almost half a year to bring the update to the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab devices.
