    Hi,

    It seems we're getting closer and closer to Froyo !

    As you can read on twitter (and mentioned in this post) we will have to wait until the Galaxy S has had its update. No problem, we'll wait just a little bit longer, that way the bugs can be fixed before they release it to our phones :)

    Samsung Galaxy Apollo/3 to get Android 2.2 update after Galaxy S | Androidos.in

    There's already a leaked firmware on samfirmware. However, I will wait until I'm getting it through kies ;-)

    Samsung I5800 gets Froyo! -

    Now let's keep an eye out and see if we can find a date .. ! :)

    cheers

    Oh, keep in mind that this leaked firmware is not compatible with i5801. More news to follow! :)

    Oh my! This is the first comforting thing I read all day. I bought the I5800 this very morning like an idiot, just to realise I can't use skype on it and that it has a bug that makes it go mute if you try to talk over fring or nimbuzz or voiceonaut. In other words, no voip!

    The only hope is a firmware update. Which isn't available. I've been miserable all day, considering selling the phone.

    So thanks for this headsup! I wouldn't dare flashing the phone myself but hopefully this is a good sign, hopefully this will be released officially soon, right?

    I had been reading that it would come but I think it won't come fast.
    Still, great news.

    @teapot123
    Have you been able to use skype?
    For me, it will be important should I buy this phone, and if there is a real problem, I would reconsider

    Thanks
