T-Mobile serving Samsung Vibrant Froyo on January 21

A delivery of Android 2.2's Froyo build will sweeten Samsung Vibrant owners' dispositions, which have grown salty of late thanks to update delays.

Samsung Vibrant owners may be getting sweeter later this month. T-Mobile will begin updating the Samsung smartphone from Android 2.1 to Android 2.2. Subscribers will begin seeing the long-awaited changes as soon as January 21, though the rollout will come in waves--not everyone will receive a call to update on the same day.

In addition to serving Vibrant owners some good new about the Froyo build, T-Mobile also put to rest a nasty rumor that Samsung has been purposely thwarting the Android 2.2 update.

Samsung's custom skin and T-Mobile's add-on apps are two complications behind the slow-down, according to PC Magazine. Delays like this are common whenever a carrier or manufacturer adds elements on top of Google's stock Android OS.

T-Mobile has acknowledged subscribers' frustration, stating a goal of updating Android-run phones to the newest OS within three to five months of a Google release. Let's hope T-Mo can make good on its pledge.
