Samsung Intercept on Virgin Mobile Gets Froyo April 11

When Virgin Mobile first let its Samsung Intercept users know that Froyo would finally be coming their way, it just gave us a general springtime ETA. To its credit, when it looked like it was able to narrow down that broad window it did so, letting us know that the Android 2.2 update would be out sometime around March 25. Even allowing for a little bit of stretch there, it’s safe to say that delays have cropped up. Now the carrier has a new date in mind, informing users to expect Froyo on April 11.

Virgin Mobile has been reportedly contacting Intercept owners via SMS, letting them know about the new date and directing them to a website with details on the upgrade. That page itself explains the basic OTA update process, including what you’ll need to back up, but doesn’t contain any further details or confirmation regarding the timing of the update’s arrival.

We really hope Virgin Mobile has its ducks in a row this time, as Intercept owners have been waiting more than long enough to see their Androids updated. At this rate, don’t expect to see a Gingerbread update anytime soon.
