Galaxy S Gingerbread

Three UK has revealed via its official Twitter feed that it expects to release the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for its Samsung Galaxy S phones "in the next couple of weeks". However, the carrier adds that it doesn't have a firm release date in mind yet.

The news follows the leaking of a Euro Galaxy S Gingerbread ROM late last month. That ROM reportedly originated from a Samsung service center, and hasn't been pushed out officially yet. If Three's timings are correct, the Galaxy S series will be among the first phones to receive an official update to Android 2.3. The HTC Desire is also expected to receive its Gingerbread update in late April or early May, according to an earlier tweet by Three. [@ThreeUK]
