Samsung Galaxy S Gets Froyo Update in Norway, Denmark, and Sweden

Word is coming in that various users across Europe (Norway, Denmark, and Sweden) are seeing Android 2.2 updates to their Samsung Galaxy S phones.  Folks with the update program known as Samsung Kies should be able to grab this manually for their i9000 handsets.   When updated, the phone should register as build I9000 JPM.  To be clear, this is only works for this particular device, your US counterpart is still going to need to wait.  Looks like perhaps the source code was slightly ahead of the official rollout.  Maybe after the update trickles around the world, Samsung will make it available again.
