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.
