Fascinate gets Android 2.3 update, users rejoice

Samsung Fascinate owners are reporting that Android 2.3 is starting to reach their phones through an over-the-air update. Those who received and installed the update are reporting much improved performance and a very fast GPS lock-on, even when indoors. One user posted that his Quadrant benchmark scores jumped from the 650s to 1150 just from the update.

The changelog on Verizon's webpage (PDF) outlines all the changes. All the common Android 2.3 elements are present, including the Download Manager App, more app and power management controls, new widgets, and enhanced security, among other changes. [via at AndroidCentral]
