We just posted on the AT&T small firmware update for the Android Captivate that covered a few things like a Voice Improved Calling and QuickOffice. What AT&T did not include in their statement is that there was also the GPS fix that a lot of you have been waiting for. From one of Mobility Digest’s tipsters, Samsung has released the following statement:
Samsung Mobile and AT&T are pleased to announce an update for the Samsung Captivate. Below is Samsung Mobile’s official statement regarding the over-the-air update.
An update to improve the Samsung Captivate’s GPS performance is now available. Captivate customers will receive a notification on their device that an update is available and will simply need to download the file to update their phone. The updates will be pushed to customers’ devices over the next few weeks.
The update for the Captivate will also improve additional device functions, such as media scanning time, add the full version of Quickoffice and address Microsoft Exchange 2003 policy support.
Could it be that AT&T has a diamond in the update that even they didn’t know about? We got one comment on the update already that there are some issues updating the device. So come on all you tipsters and let us know if there is indeed the much awaited GPS Fix for the Captivate and Samsung Galaxy S devices with your FOTA update.
UPDATE 11:16am: Our good friend Kristofer Brozio has just confirmed from Samsung that the AT&T FOTA update does in fact have the GPS Fix in it! Holla People and let us know who it is working for you!
