Samsung Fascinate for Verizon Might See Android 2.2 Upgrade by End of 2010

Despite the fact that the talk around town is focused on Android 2.3, or Gingerbread, there’s still a few handsets out there that need to get updated to Android 2.2. While the Droid lineup of devices on Verizon have already made the leap to Android 2.2, or Froyo, and with LG confirming that the Ally will be seeing its own update in the first quarter of 2011, there’s the little matter of updating the Samsung Galaxy S variant for Verizon, better known as the Fascinate.

According to a leak that was tipped over to Android Central, it looks like the Fascinate may be seeing Android 2.2, and Adobe’s Flash Player, by the end of 2010. The photo, which shows a comparison chart of devices available on Verizon, compares the Fascinate to the recently released Droid 2, and Droid X — both manufactured by Motorola, and brandishing the Droid trademark. However, it’s curious to note that the Droid X is listed as having Android 2.1 under the hood, and not 2.2, which is telling us that this comparison chart isn’t exactly new.

So while we’re still hoping that the Fascinate for Verizon does indeed get updated to 2.3 before the start of 2011, especially with rumors that Sprint’s variation, the Epic 4G, is getting updated in just a couple of days, we’ll have to hold our breath a bit longer, we imagine. Hopefully Samsung’s and Verizon’s plans for the upgrade haven’t changed since this chart was released.
