Gingerbread for the HTC EVO 4G is arriving June 6th
Call it a very special one-year birthday or something, but the HTC EVO 4G is going to be officially getting its fill of Android 2.3 Gingerbread come Monday, June 6th.

Mark the date in your calendars people because one of the most popular Android handsets to launch last year is about to get better, thanks to the beauty of Gingerbread! Indeed a perfect birthday surprise, the over-the-air update will begin rolling out to handset owners in batches as usual – so don’t be too surprised if you don’t see that notification hit your device on day one. Still, you don’t need to fret because you can always initiate the manual process yourself within the Android settings menu.

Besides seeing the software being upgraded, the update also restores the handset’s ability to sync Gmail accounts and view attachments. Moreover, there are some fixes that address some battery discharge problems, which should hopefully give a little bit more life to the 4G WiMAX smartphone. Excited much?

Yes that is great news for people with an unrooted HTC Evo 4G, they will play with Gingerbread for about 3 weeks & get used to it until the HTC Evo 3D FINALLY comes out! I am patiently waiting for the HTC Evo 3D, with its new Sense 3.0, 1.2 GHz dual-core & 1 GB of RAM. It's going to make the HTC Evo 4G look a little old now! My HTC Evo 4G was a great workhorse, but in 3 weeks I will be sending it to Boca Raton FL. to retire! lol

That is if you want to wait for the update. Sprint posted an article on FaceBook with "Android 2.3 update will be pushed beginning Monday, 6/6. (Manual Downloads 6/3)" as part of the headline, and in the article it says users can access the update manually starting 6/3 and "To access the update – from the home screen" press "Menu/Settings/System updates/HTC software Update."
