    Is this Twitter account really run by a Samsung rep?

    SamsungFirmwares (SamsungFirmware) on Twitter

    They first tweeted this:
    From that tweet, it sounded like a fake Samsung twitter account already. Why send a email to Samsung when you are Samsung?

    Then they retweeted this:
    I don't know what to believe really. Hopefully Samsung releases some concrete info about Froyo at the press conference.

    Looks like we have two choices:

    1. Trust Samsung to upgrade the phone.

    2. Wait until the phone releases with 2.2 before buying.

    I haven't decided on my choice.

    Or choice 3: Just decide you can be happy with 2.1, I mean it doesn't need apps2sd, and has landscape rotation in both directions, bluetooth voice dialling, and WiFi tether anyways...

    2.2 will be on the galaxy S, anything beyond that is just wishful thinking.

    im from India and i wanted to buy the phone today,while i was on my way to the store i read this tweet on my current phone,as you would expect i dropped my plans.Now im really wondering if i should worry so much about this phone getting a 2.2 update ,might as well go in for the desire,and save me the indecision.
    either way im going to jail because im going to kill the stupid bas***d who tweeted this :mad:.

    I just watched SlashGear's unbox of the Galaxy S and he said that Adobe will release the 10.1 flash update.
    Does this mean that when it get release even Android 2.1 can show Flash content?

    Galaxy S will definitely be upgraded to 2.2. I'm just coming off chat with representatives from Samsung Sweden and they said a 2.2 upgrade is guaranteed, but there's no official date for it yet.

    Release does not imply its available in market! Its not in stock in any store in Delhi as of yet.. Official MRP is 31.5k.. Should be lower when it retails..

    Galaxy S will be 2.2 and I believe samsung will be working on this one ASAP because the the phone comes with 512MB and with 2.1 the OS can only access 256MB.

    Android 2.2 Platform Highlights | Android Developers
    2.6.32 kernel upgrade
    * HIGHMEM support for RAM >256MB

    So yeah, thats more than proof enough that we will get 2.2 and get it ASAP.

    That's no proof at all. All it is, is that there the phone is running hardware which the current OS doesn't support, there is a fix, but whether Samsung go with it or not is another question.

    If they had no intention of updating, why would they waste money putting in extra ram when they could just use 256, charge the same, and increase their profit?
