- Froyo has finally arrived for the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G! Sprint will start rolling out the Android 2.2.1 OTA update for the Epic at exactly 9PM (PST) tonight. We know that Samsung’s had a million and one excuses why the update has taken so long and it’s been over two and a half months since we first stopped the Android update for the Epic on Google’s servers. We could talk all day about how late this update is, but at this point it’s somewhat comforting to know that Froyo is finally here. The new update will enable some new features on the Samsung Epic 4G and fix a few bugs as well. Some of the enhancements and fixes include support for Adobe Flash 10.1, improved GPS functionality, Bluetooth voice dialing, the ability to install applications to the SD card, and data tethering over 3G and 4G. Sprint plans on rolling out the Android 2.2.1 update to the Samsung Epic 4G in waves and expects to have all devices updated within 4 days. Now that the Android 2.2.1 update for the Epic 4G is finally here, what Froyo feature are you most excited about?
