It would appear as if Virgin Mobile is ready to begin rolling out the Android 2.2 Froyo update for Samsung Intercept users as of today. Of course, we have heard this before so while we are hopeful, we remain skeptical. That said, this latest bit is coming by way of AndroidCentral who have reportedly gotten “numerous reports of text messages” detailing the plans for the update. The message promises an update as coming today and reads as follows;

The Froyo Update for the Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept is finally coming out on Monday the 11th! VMFreeMsg: Starting 4/11/11, you will be notified of a phone software upgrade available for your Intercept. Click for more information.

With that, we will keep out fingers crossed the Froyo rolls out today as planned. And in the meantime, according to Virgin Mobile, the Froyo 2.2 enhancements include:

  • Exchange Active Sync updates
  • ability to install applications to external memory card
  • improved Bluetooth device support
  • Bluetooth Voice dialing
  • improved operating system performance
  • dedicated phone, application and browser icons on every home screen
