Is Samsung Blocking Updates To Android 2.2?

Is Samsung Blocking Updates To Froyo? – Slashdot

“But now a disturbing rumor has it that Samsung is strong-arming T-Mobile to prevent an over-the-air upgrade to Android 2.2 (Froyo) for Samsung Vibrant owners. The reason? Samsung wants people to shell out for the new Vibrant 4G — which, other than the fact that it ships running Froyo, is largely identical to the Vibrant.’”

This is just confirming that the carriers have (or think they have) too much power over the Android phones.
