With the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S just around the corner, Korea IT Times are reporting that Samsung plan to release the device at the same time in 110 countries around the world.

If reports of an Asian release date in June are accurate, this probably means that you’ll be able to get your hands on the Galaxy S in the next few weeks, regardless of whereabouts in the world you are.

Fragmentation is often brought up as one of Android’s bigger flaws, and despite Google’s promises, it doesn’t look like it will be going away any time soon. Google has said that Froyo is supposed to help bridge the gap between OS versions, and help stem fragmentation, but I haven’t been able to track down exactly how that’s supposed to happen.

Not that any of that matters for owners of the Samsung Behold II – it doesn’t look like they’ll be seeing anything past 1.6, let alone version 2.2.

We’ve already heard quite a bit about Samsung’s flagship Android device, the Galaxy S, but a definitive release date was never given to us. Until now.

CNET are reporting today that the smartphone will be available in Asia from June, which means that it could be arriving in just a week from now. Those wanting to buy it unsubsidized will have to pay a whopping S$1,098, which is quite steep considering that the HTC Desire is on the market for just S$898.

Samsung Moment Android 2.1 Update Now Really Officially Released By Sprint

Yesterday we reported on the Samsung Moment 2.1 update arriving early due to a Sprint's goof - the update page showed no sign of the update but the file you would download was that one and only long awaited Android 2.1.

We later saw reports that the update was pulled, though could not find any evidence of that, as the .exe file seemed to remain at 100MB+, which was the same as the 2.1 file.

Samsung Moment Android 2.1 Update Goes Live Early, Available Now From Sprint, Already Rooted

We are still trying to assemble all the bits and pieces but it looks like Sprint was preparing the 2.1 upgrade for tomorrow, May 14th but uploaded the updater and the new instructions today.

A user of SDX-Developers by the name of chrisfeltdrum was downloading what he thought was an older, previously released in February update, when he realized the OS version he upgraded to was actually Android 2.1.

Chris immediately posted this information to the SDX-Developers forum for confirmation, and in a matter of minutes other users have confirmed the update was indeed official 2.1 and not the old Feburary release.

As we reported yesterday, Sprint has once again pushed back the scheduled Android 2.1 update for the HTC Hero to an unknown future date, destroying expectations of the May 7th release.

Another official confirmation of this was given today in a Sprint statement by another Sprint admin, which notified customers that the delay also affects the Samsung Moment. The official statement on the Sprint forums said

Hello Community Members,

We wanted to let you know that Sprint continues to work closely with Samsung and HTC to deliver the highly anticipated Android 2.1 upgrade for Samsung Moment and HTC Hero.

Corporate press releases are usually pretty boring. Corporate press releases about quarterly earnings? Well, they’re a one way ticket to snoozeville for sure, but every now and then you glean a little nugget of information that rewards you for slogging through the PR babble. In this case, Sprint’s 4G partner Clear has let slip that we can expect both HTC and Samsung to release Android powered handsets with Wi-Max on board by the end of this year.

If you are looking for a new Android phone, whether to upgrade your existing Android device or get introduced to the platform, pre-orders are now available in the UK for the Samsung Galaxy S.

The Galaxy S and the HTC EVO were among the biggest Android related announcements at the recent CTIA in Las Vegas.

Samsung did not hold back with this phone either, dropping some serious hardware into it that will make any Android fan foam at the mouth, specifically related to the screen.

In a surprising turn of events, it’s beginning to look like Samsung’s latest Android superphone, the Galaxy S, may be headed to a carrier near you.

Forbes is reporting that an analyst for Broadpoint.AmTech, Mark McKechnie, ‘expects the Galaxy S to be sold at AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint before the end of June and to be picked up at Verizon "sometime later in the year"’. Those are certainly promising words, and Forbes seems to have enough faith in this prediction to run with it, but it should be noted that Samsung has declined to comment on carrier availability.

Sprint  HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Android 2.1 in May
Last Updated: July 31st, 2011

An internal Sprint memo has surfaced showing a new early May release date for both HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Android phones, jonathan76888 on AndroidForums found out.

The memo looks quite legitimate and this time actually lists 2.1 as the update target, compared to the one from 3 weeks ago that referenced a "maintenance release" and promised an April 9th date (followed by rumors of April 16th, all false).

The wait is almost over, guys.
