Class action suit filed against Samsung and T-Mobile over Android update delay

Samsung Galaxy S phone updates have been one of the most discussed topics in recent months, but some of the users struggling with older versions of Android took their irritation to court. XDA Developers forum has seen a hotly discussed topic about a class action suit that user MicBeast allegedly filed against Samsung and T-Mobile.

The user claims that the two companies have “clearly violated the law concerning Unfair and Deceptive Consumer Business Practices.” While later the status and motivation of the lawsuit were questioned, the very interest in the topic showed that many people find the issue about Android fragmentation increasingly important.

Recently, we saw some reports about an intentional delay of a Froyo update for the Samsung Vibrant, T-Mobile's take on the Samsung Galaxy S, which were not proven.
