    If you feel like Samsung's playing a game of keep-away with your Froyo update, we'd understand, as earlier today the company's site changed its information on several handsets to indicate they'd soon be running Android 2.2, only to revert the edits. The Epic 4G, Fascinate, and Vibrant - Galaxy S phones - were briefly listed as operating on Froyo; not "set to receive Froyo", but currently running it. At first, it looked like another inadvertent leak, with some Samsung webmaster accidentally updating the site with information intended for future use. Now they're all back to Android 2.1, with ...

    If you own a Galaxy S device and have been waiting for the Froyo update to hit, you're not alone. Galaxy S owners in the US, and around the world, have had to deal with repeated unfulfilled promises from Samsung as to when the Android 2.2 update would be available. While Epic 4G owners came close with a leak, Samsung made it clear that the leaked update wasn't final. Over on XDA, the 2.2.1 update for the international Galaxy S has been leaked, and owners are reporting that it's "very fast". The leak won't work on other variants of the Galaxy S, but it shouldn't be too long until the ...
