You’ve been reading about the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Samsung Epic 4G on Sprint for a couple of days now and we even told you how to install it if you don’t want to wait for Sprint to flip the switch.
If you decided to wait for the official release you’ll be happy to find out that it’s now official. What does it bring aside from the new platform? Audible Sprint AIRAVE notifications when answering call, SMS messages sent without area code, Bluetooth headset sound improvements, fully visible date on device lock screen and more. The version number is EI22 (s:D700.0.5.S.EI22) and should be hitting your Epic 4G really soon (checking for updates might help).
