All major U.S. carriers will get Galaxy S variant, Froyo

After bungling the Behold II's Android update with a will-they-won't-they approach, Samsung is attempting to cast aside any doubts that its upcoming line of Galaxy S phones will suffer the same fate.

Samsung announced the welcoming news last night via a Twitter post:

Galaxy S phones will come with Android 2.1 and be upgradeable to Android 2.2 which will support Adobe Flash 10.1

The announcement comes fresh off the heels of another Galaxy S development. Though we've recently covered T-Mobile's Galaxy S variant, the Vibrant, as well as AT&T's Captivate, according to CNET, the super AMOLED smartphone will be available in some form or another on all the major U.S. carriers.

While we've also covered Sprint's Galaxy S Pro, the only full QWERTY device in the initial Galaxy lineup has been dubbed "Epic". In addition to its spec sheet, the device will come with a video store to download movies and TV shows, though it is unclear at this time who will provide the content.

Verizon -- not to be left in the other carriers' warp trail -- will entice consumers with the Fascinate, which sounds to be almost identical to the Vibrant and Captivate. Two things stand out about the Fascinate that have not been revealed on the other variants, though: support for numerous video codecs, including DivX, and DLNA support, which allows wireless sharing between other DLNA-supported devices like HDTVs and gaming consoles.

The fifth-largest mobile provider (and most often-overlooked), U.S. Cellular will be receiving a version of the Galaxy S as well.

Availability and pricing of Verizon, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular's handsets has not been announced.

And while Froyo will be coming to the Galaxy S handsets at one point or another, MyDroidWorldhas leaked an official test build for Motorola DROID users that includes root access and a customized kernel.
