    Oh, this is messed up! There's 4 or 5 apps by the same name, but different creators, clearly trying to take advantage in some way. ;)

    Can you tell us the maker of the correct one?

    Edit: There are 9 of them, but only one Apps Installer

    Unless I have the wrong one, you are incorrect, my good man.

    Apps Installer apps running from card, or from phone

    Ok so summing this all up Sprint is updating there intercept possibly in December.
    Virgin Mobile is owned by Sprint. So Virgin Mobile might and hopefully get the 2.2 update sometime next year!! That's kinda what im thinking from everything i have been reading.

    "Just got off of the phone with Sprint Tech Support after noticing that the website now lists the Intercept as shipping with Android 2.2
    After talking the Technician I found out the following info:
    New Samsung Intercepts are shipping with Android 2.2, all of us that already own them will have to wait, I was told that they had the Android 2.2 update ready and because of a leak someone got ahold of they screwed up alot of phones so they pulled the update back. But I was also reassured that the update will be out in the next 1-2 weeks and would of been out already if not for the leak. It will be an OTA update and is currently just waiting to be released. According to the Tech, they had to replace and repair alot of phones because of this leak and that is what the hold up is."

    I have the intercept for VM as well.. I'm guessing i'll probably end up having to root it to get 2.2.

    Why would we have to root it just to get the upgrade?

    This info may indeed be true BUT similar info from these sources regardless of device have been notoriously inaccurate. Enough so that I automatically take it as BS. I have yet to see one person claim to have a stock 2.2 Intercept, nor have I seen complaints about an official or leaked update bricking phones.

    I had to take my POS Intrcept to the Sprint store today because it drops over half of my calls... The store manaher told me to expect the 2.2 update next week.

    No live wallpapers or flash? That stinks. But still good news overall. I hope this also pertains to Virgin Mobile USA.

    This would be so great! I got a market update yesterday and was wondering about 2.2. Hopefully the phone won't lag so bad after this, that or it could slow it down more I guess. Thanks for the news, Pasta!

    It may take a few days. Usually the updates are rolled down regionally.

    I'm sure Live Wallpapers will be hacked to work like it is on 2.1
    Here is a generic list of the benefits of 2.2
    Changes included:

    * Additional application speed improvements courtesy of JIT implementation

    * Improved application launcher with shortcuts to Phone and Browser applications
    * USB tethering and Wi-Fi hotspot functionality
    * Added an option to disable data access over mobile network
    * Updated Market application with batch and automatic update features
    * Quick switching between multiple keyboard languages and their dictionaries
    * Voice dialing and contact sharing over Bluetooth
    * Support for numeric and alphanumeric passwords
    * Support for file upload fields in the Browser application
    * Support for installing applications to the expandable memory
    * Adobe Flash 10.1 support
    * Support for extra high DPI screens (320 dpi), such as 4" 720p
