UPDATE 25.03.11: Sprint has released the Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 update…again.
Well last week has been a good one for the US Samsung Galaxy S owners. First and foremost the Samsung Vibrant Android 2.2 update has been released by T-Mobile ( let’s hope the other carriers will follow suite ) and some very disturbing rumors have been shut down ( like Samsung charging extra for the Samsung Epic 4G, Vibrant, Fascinate and Captivate Android 2.2 updates or the Samsung Vibrant Android 2.2 update being pushed back in order to prevent a potential decrease in value of the Samsung Vibrant 4G ).
With T-Mobile leading the way all eyes are on Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. Among these carriers, Sprint has been pretty vocal about the upcoming Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 update. What did the carrier had to say ? Check it out after the break.
As soon as news broke out regarding the Vibrant Android 2.2 update, Sprint took it to Twitter in order to let its customers know that Sprint and Samsung are working on the Epic 4G Android 2.2 update. Release date: ASAP.
Sprint then followed the above tweets with a blog post that says pretty much the same thing: Sprint and Samsung are working on releasing the Samsung Epic 4G as soon as possible. Sadly the carrier cannot commit to an exact Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 release date just yet but from the sound of it they’re in a “rigorous” testing phase.
However, if you’ll try contacting Sprint’s regarding the Smasung Epic 4G, Samsung Epic and Sanyo Zio Android 2.2 updates support you’ll get on of the following answers:
It’s a good thing that Sprint is actually talking about it, but if you’re tired of waiting for an official release ( and you’re willing to get your hands a bit dirty ) you should know that there are some pretty good Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 custom ROM’s out there that will give you a taste of the Froyo pie and some ( we talked a few days ago about the Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 powered TrulyEpic ROM ).
Thanks Android Central for the info on the highly anticipated Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 update.
