Samsung Galaxy S Gingerbread Update Suspended by Google

In some news that should be familiar to Samsung Galaxy S owners, Google has decided to ‘temporarily suspend’ the Galaxy S Gingerbread update that began rolling out last weekend to device owners in the United Kingdom.

Vodafone has gone ahead and confirmed that Google has stopped the roll out of Android 2.3 because of what they call, an ‘issue.’ There is absolutely no elaboration from Google or Vodafone at this point so at this point but the carrier has confirmed that its device is not affected by the issue.

It also goes on to say that it’s working side-by-side with Samsung to get the update rolling out again. It’s currently unknown which version of the Galaxy S in the UK is the one giving Google issues but from the sound of things, it appears that the suspension could very well be lifted in the short term.

This isn’t the first time Samsung has had update issues with one of its devices. Microsoft had major issues with the February Windows Phone 7 update and Sprint had to pull Android 2.2 for the Samsung Epic 4G.

Oh, and let’s not forget that Verizon still has yet to roll out Android 2.2 to the Samsung Fascinate, an update that apparently is still being tested on the handset.

    Keep in mind that this might not be a technical issue, per se. Google made news recently for tightening the reins on Android releases. It is possible that something in this release did not meet with Googles approval.
