We’ve just received word from German Android site SmartDroid.de that they’ve got a friend sitting in at Samsung in Frankfurt who’s heard a rather important update to the status of Galaxy S devices to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. They’ve heard, apparently straight from Samsung, that Gingerbread will be coming to Galaxy S in March. Will this just be in Germany, or will it be worldwide? We’re guessing at least Germany and USA, though that’d be an odd combination.

We’ve been waiting QUITE a while for this update, especially since Froyo is still scarcely to be seen on Android phones across the board. When will the future include universal updates to all units? Never. When will we see Gingerbread on Galaxy S? Next month! We’re pumped.
