Just earlier today, we posted that the “regular” Evo 4G was going to receive a maintenance update to fix issues associated with their latest Gingerbread OTA update. Well, it looks like the Evo Shift 4G is going to be getting some Gingerbread love as well (hopefully with less bugs).

Starting June 17th, you can manually check for a software up date on your Evo Shift and if everything goes according to plan, you should be able to get your taste of Google’s latest Android dessert. And don’t worry, if you’re a bit absent minded like me, Sprint will notify and prompt all users on their network of the OTA update on the 20th.

Not too many people know this but an official leaked version of the Evo Shift Gingerbread ROM was leaked awhile ago and I’ve been running it strong on my Evo 4G with no problems what-so-ever. Smooth as butter.

Couple the Gingerbread update with the fact that the Evo Shift is also running a newer version of Sense 2.1 and you might say that this device has a leg up on its qwerty-less cousin. Now how about a Sense update for Evo 4G users, HTC?
