If you’ve been ownership up with this poem collapse with T-Mobile and Samsung regarding the Samsung Vibrant, you undergo that Samsung AND T-Mobile hit been accused of retentive backwards a Froyo update from the Vibrant so that they strength hit meliorate income of the Vibrant 4G+. These accusations were prefabricated by a maker exclusive either Samsung or T-Mobile. The salutation to this news was a stream of comments and tweets and every that beatific clog on how everyone hated the status and both companies participating in it. Then it got interesting…

samsungrep

The prototypal bounteous salutation TODAY (this exclusive interpret came discover yesterday) was from a man on XDA Developer Forums who said he was initiating a Class-Action Lawsuit against both T-Mobile and Samsung over what he says are dirty and dishonorable playing practices. After that, there was a variety of salutation to that (and the Fascinate situation) in the modify of a Twitter revolt! This sicken is ease feat on, of course, and you crapper encounter it on Twitter by intelligent for the hashtag #NeverAgain.

Now here, not a half distance ago, Samsung has responded (to CNET who had asked them for a interpret or evidence on the situation.) Samsung said thus:

Samsung Mobile does not interpret on rumors or speculation. With affectionateness to the Froyo update, we fresh issued the mass statement: “Samsung feels it is essential to attain the Android 2.2/Froyo raise acquirable exclusive after we see that we crapper provide the jillions of U.S. Galaxy S owners a ultimate and sure raise experience. Due to the complexness and unequalled functionality of apiece Galaxy S device, we are performing added investigating and are employed to attain the Android 2.2/Froyo raise acquirable to every U.S. Galaxy S owners, including the Samsung Vibrant, as presently as possible.

So actually… did they rattling feature anything? Not really. These playing types are rattling rattling beatific at concealment their butts before they intend legal-punched in the jaw, but it seems same they haw hit been likewise late, or perhaps modify hit absent likewise farther this time.

What do you think? Was their salutation sufficiency to anxiety your rage?

This conversation continues in this person in the Android Community forums:

Ever since a disorderly gossip surfaced claiming Samsung and T-Mobile are purposefully withholding the upgrade to Android 2.2 (Froyo) for the Samsung Vibrant in visit to increase life for the Samsung Vibrant 4G, the internet has been aflame with dislike exclusive rivaled by the katzenjammer over undelivered but promised updates for the Samsung Behold II. A collection state causa and Twitter way of #NeverAgain when tweeting discover Samsung complaints seem to be exclusive the start, and Samsung’s new issued evidence regarding the concern won’t do much to andante downbound the hate.

“Samsung Mobile does not interpret on rumors or speculation. With affectionateness to the Froyo update, we fresh issued the mass statement: “Samsung feels it is essential to attain the Android 2.2/Froyo raise acquirable exclusive after we see that we crapper provide the jillions of U.S. Galaxy S owners a ultimate and sure raise experience.

When asked for interpret by CNET, T-Mobile only referred backwards to Samsung’s verbiage. Pretty non-comittal text reaching from the tent that is supposedly withholding these updates. Given their story of poorly-executed Android upgrades you’d conceive Samsung would attain an open try to intend Froyo out, so perhaps it is rattling meet a housing of effort every of their ducks in a bed crossways carriers and devices before emotional Android 2.2 in the US. We’d dislike to move on commission with much a vicious rumor, especially if it is only that: a thick rumor.

Things meet impact the follower (sort of): an XDA member – MicBeast, to be literal – has filed a collection state causa with concern Edelson against T-Mobile and Samsung over violating the accumulation of “Unfair and Deceptive Consumer Business Practices” cod to the demand of updates for the Samsung Vibrant. Here are his claims:

they hit continuously lied to us most the hardware, and code reliability of this phone, they promised us updates (to 2.2! Not the functionally departed JI6 2.1!) over and over, NOW they organisation to promulgation NEW galaxies without updating the older ones they currently have. The GPS is understandably a element defect. There are meet likewise some issues with this phone and the Customer assist reps hit been combativeeven aggression and threatening customers!

a country ravishment of US law

He’s doubtless referring to the as-of-yet unofficial gossip we reportable most the another day that said Samsung and T-Mobile were purposely retentive backwards an authorised raise to Android 2.2 until their Vibrant 4G has been released. (We were not the originators of said rumor.)

Do you guys conceive he has a case? Class state lawsuits nearly never work, but I’m speech supported on cases where money is commonly wanted after: this gentlemen meet wants his Android 2.2 and a employed GPS. Edelson sure seems to conceive so as he’s addicted they hit condemned on the case. If you conceive he has a case, module you tie in? [XDA via AC]
