Official Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update starts rolling out

Samsung has started to gradually roll-out the official Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update for the Samsung Galaxy S this past weekend via the Kies desktop software. So far only European users are being notified to update when plugin-in their phones but nothing’s stopping you from doing it manually by downloading the full package to your PC and flashing it via ODIN. This new XWJVB version seems to be really similar to the leaked XWJVK (they do have the same basedband).

After playing with it all day (with no modification/rooting or anything at all) I’m personally going to stick with the trusty 2.2.1 JS7 rom which I found snappier out of the box. I’m alos no really fond of the new notification bar/drawer and the fact that the button’s backlight re always on when the display is on.
