Samsung Epic 4G could visit the Gingerbread bakery this month
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Samsung Epic 4G on Sprint is expected to come this month, around the 24th, says unnamed source from the nation's third largest carrier.

The Gingerbread update brings a more refined UI, as well as improved text input, downloads, applications and power management. The source mentioned that Samsung's TouchWiz interface overlay (what else) has been the culprit for the Gingerbread update delay, but the issues are obviously being sorted out, and it should be just a few weeks before the improvements start gracing your Epic 4G.

This confirms for the Nth time that manufacturer overlays are thorn in the paw when it comes to timely Android updates, regardless how useful their creators perceive them. Oh, well, we can't have it all, and Google said it will slow the pace down with Android updates annually after Ice Cream Sandwich, so next year we might be looking at a different Android world.

Hey that is great, I can't wait to install the Android Gingerbread update to my wife's Samsung Epic 4G. She had an Apple iPhone 4 & just loves the Epic 4G. She loves the physical keyboard way better than the iPhone 4's virtual keyboard. Also she can't get enough of the 4G speeds of the Epic 4G. You know what they say, a happy wife = a happy house hold! lol

Dude what are you talking about? Because I say lol I am insecure. Really? Dude if you need to even type that, YOU are the insecure person. What Debbie said to me was VERY funny. I was laughing as I was typing my response to her. I laughed longer than it took me to type that little post. I can't believe I need to explain myself to YOU! Just so you know I don't laugh as I talk you moron. rican thanks for your diagnosis. I didn't know you are a psychiatrist. Just so you know your stupid post just annoyed the sh*t out of me. LOL
