Yes, there actually are Android smartphones still waiting for an Android 2.2 update (if the device supports it at all). Verizon Wireless is bringing out some Froyo for the Samsung Fascinate.

This OS update has been very slow to roll out to the Samsung Galaxy S series devices. Last June, all of them were scheduled for an update shortly after they were released. That update was due before the end of 2010. That promise looked like it would be kept last October, but sadly, it was not to be in all markets.

By the end of February, both the Captivate on AT&T and the Vibrant on T-Mobile had the necessary OS update. Now, nearly a year after being launched, Verizon is bestowing the honor to Fascinate owners over the air.

At this point, it almost seems rather unnecessary. Verizon should either roll out the Froyo update quickly followed by Gingerbread, or anyone desperate for a better version of Android should wait for the Samsung Galaxy S II series.
