Froyo updates for the Samsung Epic 4G & Sanyo Zio are coming February 21st
Just when things were starting to look bleak, two of Sprint’s Android powered devices are finally getting their highly anticipated Android 2.2 Froyo update. So if you happen to be sporting either the Samsung Epic 4G or Sanyo Zio, you can look forward to the date of February 21st for that notification to hit your handset.

We know that Samsung Epic 4G owners have been waiting ever so patiently for this one, but it’s being reported that the Froyo update being rolled out to the handset is going to have build number EB13. Specifically, the over-the-air update is scheduled to roll out over the course of four days starting on the 21st, and obviously, it’ll bring along some tantalizing new features – such as Flash 10.1 support, GPS enhancements, the ability to install apps to a microSD card, Bluetooth voice dialing, and an overall improved OS performance.

As for the affordable Sanyo Zio, it too will start begin its Froyo roll out beginning on the 21st, but it’s slated to occur over the course of five days instead. From the sound of it, the build number with the update will be 2.200SP and includes the normal set of new features accompanying Froyo. However, it’ll even include other goodies things like the Swype keyboard, Sprint Zone 2.5.5, and better battery life.

So there you have it. Yet another two devices on Sprint’s lineup are finally joining the Froyo crew! In the meantime, it’s probably best to get things backed up to get yourself ready for download day.
