The HTC Evo 3D has already received it’s “security update” removing that nasty Carrier IQ spyware from devices and staying true to their word, Sprint has already begun issuing updates for the rest of their Android lineup.

The HTC Evo 4G and HTC Evo Design 4G are next in line to receive their over-the-air updates and although Carrier IQ wasn’t specifically mentioned in the changelog, we expect that’s what is alluded to in “security.” You can see all the changes down below for yourself, along with more a little more detail to that upcoming Samsung Epic 4G OTA we told you guys about a few days ago.

We expect the Samsung Epic 4G Touch to receive the same treatment in the coming days. Sprint’s network can only handle so many updates. Baby steps, people…

HTC EVO Design 4G Software Update – 2.12.651.5

– The QIK and Asphalt 5 applications are no longer preloaded.  When opening

the applications using the application icon, you will be redirected to the

Android market to download and install the full application.

* After the QIK install, you will need to login using your original

account information or create a new account.  All contacts should remain intact

* After the Asphalt 5 install, previous game play data (eg. levels) will not be retained.
