If there are any Samsung Captivate owners out there who haven’t yet thrown their devices out a window due to frustration, today is your lucky day. Samsung has finally made an Android 2.2 Froyo update available for AT&T’s Galaxy S phone despite the fact that three new versions of Android have been unveiled since Google first took the wraps off Froyo last year. As long as AT&T and Samsung took to make this update available, we’re expecting a rock solid build free of any major bugs — anything less would be just plain sad at this point. Captivate owners can hit the read link below to begin the update process.

UPDATE: In a cruel twist of fate, it looks like Samsung pulled the update. Captivate owners, you may now feel free to smash your phones on the ground out of frustration (don’t really do that).

Thanks, Alex
