Samsung has admitted that some of its most recent Android OS smartphones have problems with their GPS receivers, but has committed to fixing them. The issues affect both the Samsung Captivate and Samsung Vibrant.
In response to user complaints, Samsung has issued a statement:
“Samsung Mobile is aware that under certain conditions, the GPS on our U.S. Galaxy S devices may not be meeting performance expectations. We are diligently evaluating the situation and will provide an update as soon as possible.”
AT&T’s Captivate and T-Mobile’s Vibrant are the two versions of the Galaxy S that have been released so far in the U.S., but Sprint and Verizon are prepping their own versions.
