Saw this on Twitter!
You do realize Sprint isn't a UK provider right? I mean, that came from Samsung's UK updates, which means all providers in the UK, ie. not Sprint.
That update is talking about the Samsung Galaxy S phones in europe/UK.
I'm thinking that with Sprint making a push to be the first US carrier to offer Froyo through the EvO, I doubt the "End of September" time frame is that far off for the Epic 4G.
Even so, that announcement doesn't really tell us the fact you purport in the title. =) But here's to hoping...
True, updated post title...
I'm thinking, more like hoping, that the epic will be froyo'ed on initial release.
Thats my feeling too. Especially with the push Sprint is making. Would definitely be a GREAT surprise at launch!
But even so, how far behind could the US Galaxy S Series updates be if the UK already has them confirmed for September? This is great news.
Froyo Aug 30th
At the rate we're going, the EPIC won't be RELEASED until late September!!!
If the EPIC doesn't ship with FROYO loaded, it will be a damn shame.
I wouldn't be surprised that the non release date thus far is is due to trying to get Froyo relased with the Epic.
Any updates for when Froyo is coming to the Epic?
Still the September timeline so far. They haven't specified the day though.
Well don't get to excited IMO it kinda F**ked up my Evo after it was downloaded. I was not the only one having problems either.
Nah, I think we should be fine. Sprint has learned a few things from the launch of the Evo like NOT to have half your apps launch & stay open on their own.
Didn't I see something where they were offering to downgrade from 2.2 to 2.1 for no charge? When/if I saw this - I assumed that there were issues.
Well....personally speaking, (I) will be upgrading. You guys can stay on 2.1 if you choose to. Just deny the upgrade notice.
I think since Epic is a totally different hardware than the Evo, the 2.2 will be awesome on it. I'm gonna accept it when it comes.
I'll take my chances with 2.2 as soon as I can without rooting. My wife has a Droid 2 - and it flys - I can NOT wait to get 2.2 on the EPIC - will make it Epicer?
When I purchased my Epic on 8/31, I asked the Sprint rep and he said 9/16. He couldn't tell me if it would be OTA because he said the Samsung rep said that sometimes Sprint likes to bring people back into the store so they have a chance to upsell them on other things.
I'll be HOT if they force us to go into the store for an upgrade & Evo users get OTA updates. SMH. Not even Verizon pulls stuff like that
I gotta think it'll be OTA. I know that the numbers are out - and they were good. I don't know how they would handle that many people - especially without appointments - and then - that would start pi$$ing people off!
I hope it is on that day. Having the Evo kinda spoiled me, even though the Epic is very fast. I hope froyo will make it even faster, fix some bugs[gps, signal strength] and with flash 10.1!!
By the way isn't 9/16 the date Samsung had some huge announcement to make? I'm not sure where I saw it but that date looks familiar.
I think they are showing off the Samsung Media Hub on 9/16.
