Last week we published a leaked internal memo from Sprint’s systems that said in no uncertain terms that the update to Android 2.2 Froyo for the Samsung Epic 4G would begin on December 26 – this past Sunday.
Needless to say, that didn’t happen. And, rightfully, some of you wondered in the comments of that post what was going on.
Well, apparently the update has been delayed. What could possibly be even worse than that? There’s no ETA on when it will be out.
All signs at this point seem to indicate a January release, but there’s not much actual official evidence to back that claim up.
So the Galaxy S Froyo update debacle keeps on giving, it seems. Perhaps owners of Samsung’s flagship smartphones will have more luck with updates to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Or maybe Samsung will release the Galaxy S 2 in a month or two, and forget about the original Galaxy S line completely. We’ll see. Until we do, it’s back to patiently waiting, if you have an Epic 4G.
