Sprint pushing out OTA updates for the Samsung Epic 4G and the Samsung Galaxy Tab
Sprint's subscribers who happen to have a Samsung Epic 4G or a Samsung Galaxy Tab running on its network are going to love to hear what we just found out. Reportedly, Sprint has started pushing out  over-the-air updates for these two Android-powered handhelds, which add a number of exciting features to their repertoire.

The most significant improvement to the Samsung Epic 4G is its upgrade to the most popular Android version out there – 2.2 Froyo. That translates into added Adobe Flash 10.1 support for a richer browsing experience, the ability to install applications to the smartphone's external storage card, and a number of other minor and major enhancements. Additionally, just as it was announced a few months ago, the updates also introduce the Sprint ID customization capability to both the Samsung Epic 4G and the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which brings the total number of devices to support the feature to five. Users will now be able to easily customize their smart handhelds by choosing one of the many predefined lifestyle “packs,” which have been designed around a specific theme – golfing, business, automobiles, or fashion, to name a few. Each one of the sixteen “packs” contains theme-related widgets, sounds, wallpapers, and apps, and the entire selection can be browsed through via Sprint's website.

Sprint promises that the updating process will be complete on all devices by March 24 so keep an eye on the notification area of your handheld.
