    Who didn't see this coming?

    I am good with it just as long as when it is released there are no bugs to speak of - unlike what the phone was released with.....

    It just makes me wonder if they know what they are doing at all. What really makes me sad is the growing trend of companies releasing products before finishing them.

    Despite the sensationalist title, if you actually RTFA you'll see that "There is no official statement yet so its unclear what are the reasons behind" Samsung removing the Froyo update for download. The blog poster is just guessing.

    Blogs != news.

    Maybe I'm just cranky and need a nap or a refill of my sippy cup, but whether they release the upgrade in a month, two months, or three months - in the big scheme of things what's the difference? We've lived our lives for this long without Froyo, so big deal if it's delayed beyond whatever expectations have been created.

    Furthermore, people who believe that Froyo will be bug-free and will be a remedy for all ills afflicting the Captivate are kidding themselves. Perfection (or even that which is close to perfection) is ever-elusive.

    Anyone want to bet that it will get delayed until next year?

    This is one bet that I dont want to win.

    Please remember, Samsung USA has said (and stuck to) Froyo by the end of 2010..thats official regardless of what Samsung UK (a different division) may say....lol. To realistically expect it before mid-December is simply deceiving yourself. It'll get here when it gets here. I'd rather them work out the bugs, etc. than rushing it.

    Android is turning into the relentless and perpetual wait for updates for people on these boards...:p...this is NEVER going to stop...ever.

    Like your attitude. Obviously these people never had a SE phone - as they would be waiting a long time for updates and probably jump off a bridge.

    Let them get it right before the US gets it -

    So true. I've had no less than three SE phone and owned all of them past their two year contracts. Neither of them were ever updated- NEVER.

    Can Samsung just fix this darn GPS? What the hell is taking so long? It is disappointing that my 3 year old Tilt had a perfect lock within seconds and this new machinery fails, at least for me, with the GPS. I love android, though. When is HTC coming out with a samoled screen? I'm all over that.

    If they knew how to make the GPS work, it'd be working by now. [​IMG]

    That article is almost 20 days old. If that turns out to be the official update I guarantee no one will be happy with it. I'm 99.9% sure that it is not the official build.
