    I'm looking to buy Samsung GT I5500 Galaxy 5 but it only has 2.1 and wifi hotspot is a requirement..

    Where can I see when 2.2 is going to be on Samsung GT I5500 Galaxy 5?

    I don't think official release is out yet. Checked via Kies and only 2.1 update 1 available at the moment (in the UK here). I read on the forum somewhere that Samsung may push out Froyo in March 2011

    Small amount of hope for the UK dashed just now, Kies has updated itself to 2.0.0.11044_11 .....was hoping 2.2 would come along with it...But no :(

    A1 customers from Austria just received FroYo today. Samsung Android 2.2 releases for our phone are progressing day by day. I am hoping to see French and UK version of FroYo in the next days.
