    Wait... didn't Engadget recently say that Gingerbread would most likely be a 2.x release instead of 3.0?

    If it comes out Q4... yes. Since the epic was just released. And also its Samsung's flagship line so it should be properly supported

    Ok... forget Gingerbread, will it get Honeycomb...?

    I hope this phone will actually get supported for a while. I was pretty upset at how they treated the moment, which is a great phone, and hope they dont do that to the epic.

    Poll this, please! Yes, I do think so. The hardware should be more than capable, but I don't think it'll go beyond Gingerbread since that'll be so far in the future.

    Yes, Gingerbread will be another 2.x update with its primary focus being improving the (G)UI and further stripping of the OS and more efficient coding to make it as lightweight and powerful as possible, leaving the task of defining what the phone is capable of to the user-end.

    Froyo and Gingerbread are supposedly the end of Android's OS fragmentation so I'm of the opinion that Honeycomb will carry on to any device capable of running Froyo or Gingerbread.

    I do hope you're right. This will mean Epic win (pun obviously intended) until my pocket's ready for another phone.

    I am certainly hopeful for Gingerbread, beyond that I'm doubtful, by then Samsung will be working on the next big hardware release and updating the Galaxy line won't be a priority.

    However I'm looking forward to Froyo soon.

    I am not even worried about anything beyond froyo at the moment..

    I am curious to see how many of my installed aps function normally after the (hopefully soon to come..) froyo update..
    Please add thanks if I have helped you in anyway. I will always spread the Aloha and reciprocate.

    I would be happy to get 2.2 and improve battery life and GPS - among other things...

    I really hope they dont treat the galaxy s series like they did the moment. I was really upset when I found out that eclair was the final release for the moment. It is sad to see good phones go by the wayside while so many much older phones still get updates.

    I think with the awsome hardware of the Epic, a custom ROM (perhaps Gingerbread) will be the best way to realize the full potential of this beast.

    Heck froyo alone will unleash the hardware. I think my phone is so fast I want to underclock it to 800MHz to get better battery life. Even my brother and mother said the same thing when they had their evos. These 1GHz CPU phones are blazing fast and should be supported for quite some time.

    I can tell you that the Epic on 2.1 is faster and more responsive than my Evo before Froyo. Heck is almost as fast and responsive now (except for browsing) as my Evo on Froyo!

    With Froyo, the Epic is literaly going to fly...

    See I noticed no real difference in real world tasks from the evo to the epic. Both seem to fly through whatever you throw at them and do it with great aplomb. I cant wait for froyo and see what it does for my phone (CMON video out!). The only thing that shows a difference is certain games and benchmarks. Honestly I rarely game on my phone so it really didnt matter to me. Heck had the evo come out with a slider phone I would be using that if it came out before the epic.

    Spec-wise, the Epic meets the minimum requirements to run Gingerbread so I'd see no reason why we wouldn't get the update.

    My point is that the Evo got a noticiable gain in speed with Froyo - not only in browsing but in opening/running apps, flipping through the screens, scrolling and even rebooting became faster. As it stands now, I am comparing my Epic on 2.1 to my Evo on 2.2 and I find the Epic to be almost as fast as the Evo on all those tasks except browsing. So my expectation is that with Froyo, the Epic is likely to get faster than than the Evo.

    I know it's good to look down the line but my hopes are for an upcoming FROYO release in the near future first! One thing at a time!

    Those rumors about purported Gingerbread "minimum" specs have been proven false by Google.

    Plus if they were true I wouldnt touch gingerbread. If my specs just barley pass the minimum requirement that means Im in for lag and performance issues. With those requirements I would stick with froyo for sure.
