Sprint Starts Epic 4G Gingerbread OTA: Have You Got Yours?


Hey there Samsung Epic 4G owners, have you been craving an over the air update? As luck would have it, Sprint just announced they’ll begin sending Android 2.3 out to Epic 4G owners starting today. It should automatically start downloading and installation should take only a few minutes.

Here is what Sprint had to say about the benefits of the Android 2.3:

The software upgrades Samsung Epic 4G to Android 2.3, Gingerbread. This version of the Android software improves download management through the Downloads application offering easy access to any file downloaded from the browser, email or another application. It also fixes the devices ability to stream media through certain applications for the device. This maintenance release will also improve the user experience by improving Bluetooth® headset sound quality and addressing minor issues with the lock screen date and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® HTML tagging.

Folks on our Epic 4G Forums have been asking for Gingerbread for awhile and a few users are reporting they’ve received the update: have you got yours?

If so, you can now begin craving Ice Cream Sandwiches. If not, you’re still officially two desserts behind.
