New version of Samsung Kies signals arrival of Gingerbread?

It was previously mentioned that the Samsung Romania Facebook page promised that Gingerbread will arrive on Galaxy S phones by the end of March. While that hasn’t happened yet, it has been reported that an update of Kies was being rolled out. Kies is the program used to sync and update Samsung’s Galaxy S and an update of the program usually signifies an update arriving for the Android phone as well. So far, no other carriers have been pushing out Gingerbread updates for their phones, and it looks like the Galaxy S might be the first non-Google phone to get the update. A huge difference in waiting time compared to what US consumers had to face when waiting for Froyo (Android 2.2). Let’s hope that’s the case, after all Samsung’s had a bad enough time in recent month dealing with updates – namely Froyo for the Galaxy S, and the pre NoDo Windows Phone 7 update. Will Gingerbread prove that third time’s the charm?
