As clock strikes 12 on the East Coast, Samsung Epic 4G will get Froyo
At 9pm tonight on the West Coast, Sprint will start sending out an OTA upgrade for Android 2.2.1 to owners of the Samsung Epic 4G. Now, users of the device will finally be able to install Adobe Flash Player 10.1 once the upgrade is downloaded.

Among bug fixes on the upgrade, one will improve the function of the phone's GPS. And besides being able to support Adobe Flash, the Froyo upgrade will allow Samsung Epic 4G users to store certain apps on a microSDcard, freeing up some space on the handset.

If your Epic 4G does not show the upgrade at 9:01 pm PST, don't panic or call Sprint. Android 2.2.1 will be rolling out to the device over a 4 day period.

They fixed the issue with the lag from sliding out the keyboard on your home screen but HOLY CRAP checkerboard central on webpages. Even mobile websites, scrolling isnt a issue but even on mobile websites if you try to pinch to zoom, the whole screen turns into a checkerboard EVERY TIME. Anyone else have this issue?

Still no froyo. Highly upset if I don't get by Friday I think it will be a let down. And will in my eyes lower the standards of andriod. Seems too me its all about marketing. Not really quality. Some lower end phones had 2.2 since last year just goes to show how epic it is.

its not so much quality as it is a service issue. Blame Sprint now, not Android. And if you cant wait, go get it yourself from Samsung. I still can't complain so much about having 2.1 because it was still way better than what most of us had before.
