Samsung Fascinate Froyo Update Officially Rolling Out April 21st
Verizon has announced via Twitter that the Samsung Fascinate Froyo update will finally make its way to owners starting tomorrow, April 21st.
The announcement has been a long time coming as AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have updated their Galaxy S series devices to Froyo over the past couple of months leaving Fascinate owners wondering when their update might arrive.
The update is set to bring a host of improvements to the Galaxy S device, improvements that include:
Web Browsing and Data Access
+ Device now supports Adobe® Flash® 10.1.
+ Enhanced browser performance for faster loading of webpages
+ Search the web via Bing™ Voice Search without interruption.
Email and Messaging
+ Move messages between folders in the Exchange email client with ease.
+ Easily delete all messages in your sent and trash folders within your Exchange
email account without being prompted to close the application.
+ When using the Swype® feature, sentences are now displayed with the
proper use of upper and lower case letters.
+ “Dialed Calls” correctly displays within the dialer application.
+ When connected to a Bluetooth® device, pressing the speaker button will
properly activate the speakerphone.
+ Turning on the backlight when the phone is mounted in the car dock will no longer
automatically activate the speakerphone.
+ Improvements to the Voice Commands application allows you to accurately search
contacts by name and number, even when the Contact List contains duplicates.
Additional Device Features
+ Color and text scheme in the Calendar has been improved for better readability.
+ “Feeds and Updates” widget improvements for auto-refresh feature.
+ V CAST Apps is now preloaded.
+ Samsung Media hub is now preloaded.
+ Ability to allow automatic app updates in Android Market.
So, there you have it Fascinate owners. The update rolls out tomorrow and you won’t hear a peep out of me again. Well, until it takes Samsung and Verizon a year to roll out Gingerbread, if it even arrives at all.
Enjoy your update everyone.
