After facing mounting criticism for its extremely slow pace of upgrading its T-Mobile Vibrant phone, Samsung is finally ready to deploy Android 2.2 to the device.
It took long enough, but the LG Ally and Samsung Acclaim smartphones have finally been upgraded to Android 2.2, the version of Google's operating system that most users have been using for months now.
Owners of Samsung's Galaxy S line of phones have been patiently waiting for the Android 2.2 update that many other Android owners have had for months, and now it looks like the wait may finally be over.

Verizon originally promised that Droid X customers would be getting their upgrade to Android 2.2 this summer. Well, summer ends during the day tomorrow and it appears they might just barely meet that deadline.

After several weeks of speculation about which phones will be getting the latest version of Android and when the updates will happen, there's finally an official word from one of the phone manufacturers.
The feature-laden update to Google's Android operating system is finally getting ready to make its way to Sprint's Evo 4G phone, becoming the second device to get the upgrade.
