Samsung Epic 4G Gingerbread update is now rolling out

The words "Epic" and "Sprint" are typically involved in sentences that also include "delayed" and "update," but if you've been holding out for Gingerbread on your Epic 4G, today's the day. Sprint has just confirmed that Android 2.3 is rolling out to those handsets, bringing an upgrade of the Google OS, audible Sprint Airave notifications when answering a call, Bluetooth headset sound improvements and "fully visible date on device lock screen." The software version should show as S:D700.0.5S.EI22, and it'll be pushed out in stages throughout the next ten days. Let us know how the update's going for you if you're one of the lucky ones.
