There is good news for those with a Samsung Moment who are getting impatient for an upgrade to the latest version of Google’s Android OS: this will reportedly be available in a week or so.

Sprint promised months ago that this smartphone will get an operating system upgrade to version 2.0. Since that time, Google released version 2.1, and a recent unconfirmed report says that this version will soon be available for the Moment.

This upgrade will supposedly be available on February 22 to those who are willing to bring their smartphone to a Sprint. A version that can be sent over the air directly to devices is reportedly scheduled for release on March 8.

New in Android OS 2.1
The latest version of Google’s mobile OS sports a number of significant new features, including much greater support for speech-to-text, allowing users to enter text into any application with just their voice.

In addition, the multi-touch gesture pinch-to-zoom has been added to the web browser, photo viewer, and maps applications, and OS 2.1 offers enhanced weather and news widgets.
