Samsung starts official Android 2.3 Galaxy updates

Samsung after a false start last month has officially started rolling out Android 2.3 updates for virtually all of its Galaxy devices. Every Galaxy S phone, the Galaxy Tab, and its budget Galaxy mix should all get the extra performance and user interface updates, including copy-and-paste text. The update is being pitched as especially helpful for 3D games and media playback, likely due to the much improved OpenGL graphics.

Initial upgrades will focus on the Galaxy S in Nordic countries and the UK starting sometime this week. Samsung plans a gradual rollout to the rest of the world, including North America, but didn't say when or how universally beyond mentioning a "regional plan." Upgrades for the Galaxy Tab as well as the Ace, Fit, Gio, and Mini also weren't mentioned. Some users still report updates already heading out on the Galaxy Tab, however, and may leave only a short wait.

All updates on the older phones still need to go through Samsung's Kies app for PCs.
