Samsung Epic 4G to get some Froyo today

There's now word directly from Samsung that Epic 4G users will finally have the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update they were promised last September. Known as build EB13, the update, will be delivered over-the-air (OTA) and should get to all Epic 4G users by released to all users by week's end. Not only will Epic 4G users enjoy a new flavor of Android, but they will also get additional features that include ability to install apps on external storage, Flash Player 10.1, improved Bluetooth support including voice dialing, and GPS improvements and improved OS performance in general. But the great irony is, with Epic 4G users already complaining about not having vs. 2.3 (Gingerbread) and with Honeycomb's hybrid OS on the horizon, could this be a case of too little too late?

Sprint Samsung Epic 4G Update: Delayed until further notice

This isn’t the first time Sprint's deadline hasn't been met when rolling out an Android OS update, or the second, or third... Nevertheless, it has happened again with the Epic 4G. Android 2.2 Froyo was due December 26 according to a leaked Sprint internal memo, but now has no time of arrival in sight until further notice from Sprint (or at least until another leak).

Samsung Galaxy S Devices in the US Listed as Having Android 2.2 on Samsung’s Product Page [Update]

It wouldn't be the first time, or even the second, that someone in control of a company's website jumped the gun in one fashion or another. But, for Samsung, perhaps letting someone inform the world that devices like Sprint's Samsung Epic 4G, and Verizon's Samsung Fascinate as having Android 2.2 right now isn't the smartest idea. That is, of course, unless you plan on updating those devices right now.

Samsung Epic 4G Gamepad Mod is…well… Epic!

It takes a lotta balls and/or a lot of time to be comfortable hacking your expensive and sometimes rare devices, making them what you hope for them to ideally be. It takes even MORE balls to physically rip the keypad off of your cellphone in order to create a keypad to play all your favorite games. That's exactly what BrainLazy writer Cary Golomb did, and he did it with great enthusiasm. But doesn't he need that to text, you ask? Naw.

Epic 4G misses Sprint update over server issues

The Samsung Epic 4G update Sprint had promised would roll out on September 30th has failed to materialise, with the carrier blaming an "administrative issue" in getting the software onto Google's servers.  The new firmware, which is said to address problems with the Epic 4G's 3G upload speed, issues sending large emails, excess WiFi battery drain and problems downloading Amazon MP3s over 4G, was to come just as the 30 day return window for early adopters of the smartphone was expiring.
“We  were planning to release an update for your Samsung Epic 4G on 9/30.   The file was delivered and on track for distribution but late this  afternoon, we learned that an administrative issue prevented Google from releasing the update as we had planned.  We are working to resolve the  issue and will provide an update as soon as we understand the new  delivery schedule. We  would like to clarify that the timing of this update has nothing to do  with the 30 day return window that many of you on these blogs have been  discussing and that this delay has nothing to do with any last minute  changes within the release package itself.  The delay is simply due to  an administrative issue that we are working to resolve.” Sprint statement
There is no new timescale for the firmware's release, but it will now inevitably come outside of that window for some owners.  No details on the particular administrative problem have been revealed.

Sprint Samsung Epic 4G TV Commercial: Or Is It Halo?

Have you seen this Halo commercial? Or wait, maybe it is a Droid commercial from Verizon? Well those are both wrong, It is the Sprint commercial for the Samsung Epic 4G. Is Sprint feeling the heat from the Droid style commercials from Verizon? Maybe they are just trying to fool the gamer crowd into watching the whole thing, just to only realize it isn't a commercial for the latest Halo.
