It's been a couple months since Virgin Mobile told us the Samsung Interceptwas due to get Android 2.2, and a couple weeks since the first expected window, but it looks like its day in the Froyo sun is upon us. We're getting numerous reports of text messages that read:
The Froyo Update for the Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept is finally coming out on Monday the 11th! VMFreeMsg: Starting 4/11/11, you will be notified of a phone software upgrade available for your Intercept. Click http://msg4u.us/isr for more information.
That link then takes you to a Virgin Mobile detailing the update. In addition to all the Froyo goodness, you'll be getitng:


Exchange Active Sync updates
ability to install applications to external memory card
improved Bluetooth device support
Bluetooth Voice dialing
improved operating system performance
dedicated phone, application and browser icons on every home screen

So look for it any week now.

Boo!!

I mean, boo to Verizon Wireless, who is still leaving unrooted Samsung Fascinate users out in the cold w/ no Froyo. (Yeah, I know no one wants to eat froyo when it's cold.)

Yay for Virgin Mobile Intercept users!
