CONFUSION: What happened to some European SGH-i600 Windows Mobile 6 Upgrades?

Late last month I wrote about the first availability of the long awaited and expected Windows Mobile 6 upgrades for the Samsung SGH-i600 and while initially a Russian and Dutch upgrade was available only, later on Samsung also released the Scandinavian ROM upgrades as well as added some more countries. So far so good, even if the (for me important) German und UK upgrades weren't available so far, at least they was announced (as a greyed-out flag with the notice that the country prepares for the upgrade).

Now it changed, but not to the good one but to the bad one. Instead of activating the download for the UK and Germany, Samsung removed the country flags (plus some further countries like Greece and Czech). On the left the updated country list from August 1st, on the right the country list from today (click to enlarge):

Not sure what went wrong here and I hope it's a mistake by the webmaster only. I don't see a single reason to remove the upgrade for certain countries, especially after I've heard that further upgrades are planned to be rolled out in other parts of the world as well.
Haven't heard anything from Samsung yet but I will keep you updated as soon as I received more information.

Cheers ~ Arne
