  • Samsung Temporarily Cancels Android 2.2 (Froyo) Update For Sprint Epic 4G

    Samsung just can’t catch a break this week when it comes to updates. First the Windows Phone 7 update mysteriously bricks a bunch of Samsung handsets, and Microsoft pretty much lays the blame on Samsung’s lap. Now they’re having issues with getting the Sprint Epic 4G updated to Froyo. Read More

  • Samsung Epic 4G Froyo update delayed indefinitely

    In what has now become common place in the Android update game, Sprint have delayed their Froyo update to the Epic 4G. The update was recently rumoured to start rolling out the day after Christmas, but, alas, it wasn’t so. Now, a leaked internal message to Sprint employees is saying that there is “no firm delivery date for the Froyo 2.2 software update, but it will be available in… Read More

  • Rumour: Samsung Epic 4G Froyo update coming day after Christmas

    Even if all you Samsung Epic 4G owners out there were particularly naughty this year, Sprint will give you some festive love the day after Christmas: a much anticipated Froyo update for your favourite toy. Of course, Froyo is by now getting a little stale, with the much fresher (and festively themed) Gingerbread on the scene, but that doesn’t mean you guys won’t enjoy the extra… Read More

  • Mod of the month: Samsung Epic 4G gamepad mod

    I’ve not really written a post about a phone (hardware) mod before, but when I saw this, I couldn’t help but spread this awesome dedication to the gaming cause. What you’re looking at here is a Samsung Epic 4G with a fair few buttons removed from its QWERTY slide-out keyboard and replaced with some tape and some paint. Why? Oh why, would someone do this? Find out in the… Read More

  • Sprint Epic 4G bugfix starts rolling out (again)

    Like all phones, the Sprint Epic 4G wasn’t without some bugs at launch. A good chunk of these bugs (3G upload speeds, WiFi battery issues) were supposed to have been cleared up last week with a bugfix patch — but thanks to some administrative issues, it was all postponed. Well, it seems Sprint’s ready for take two. Read More

  • Sprint Samsung Epic 4G update "on hold"

    If you own a Samsung Epic 4G, then you were probably aware that there was meant to be an update released today that solved the terrible 3G upload speeds that you were experiencing. Well, you may have noticed that the update didn’t actually come… but why? Sprint have posted an explanation in their community forums, and blame it on administration issues on Google’s end.

  • Sprint Epic 4G launching August 31st

    Earlier this month we reported that my favourite of the Galaxy S variants — Sprint’s Epic 4G — would see a release… yesterday. Clearly, this didn’t happen. So, when can we expect the QWERTY infused beast? Gizmodo report today that we can reserve the phone from August 13th, for an August 31st release date. And you know what else they told me? The price: expect to… Read More

  • Sprint Epic 4G launching one day before Verizon's Droid 2?

    Though I disapprove of any use of the word “Epic” outside of those which involve dudes with massive beards, dudes on wooden ships battling sea monsters, or dudes carrying massive stone hammers, I do not disapprove of the Sprint Epic 4G. Samsung’s 4.0″ Super AMOLED display, 1Ghz CPU, dual cameras, WiMax, and a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard? I’ll take one for… Read More
