Virgin Mobile Bringing Froyo to Samsung Intercept This Spring

Advertisement

We’d forgive you for being apprehensive about it, especially considering the mess Sprint made when trying to send out its update last month, but Virgin Mobile users will shortly have the chance to upgrade their Samsung Intercepts to Froyo.

The carrier tweeted today that it will start providing its customers with Froyo for the Intercept sometime this spring. While that means that there’s still a few months of waiting to go (all the while, putting up with news about even more advanced Android releases), it will hopefully give Virgin a chance to get its ducks in a row and avoid repeating Sprint’s mistakes. While some of Sprint’s users were able to upgrade without issue, others ran into everything from system slow-downs to the phone freezing-up mid-boot.

Virgin Mobile first started carrying the Samsung Intercept in October, running Android 2.1.
