Sprint makes OTA firmware update available for the Samsung Instinct

According to Sprint, the Samsung Instinct is one of the carrier’s most popular handsets ever – having broken a variety of sales records shortly after its release. With all those Instincts floating around out there, it stands to reason that a fair number of BGR readers are packing this sexy little handset and today we’ve got some good news for you. Starting immediately, a new firmware version is available for the instinct – ES.M800 CA10 – and it’s bringing along a few slick new features with it. Here’s an unofficial change log, short and sweet:

  • New RSS Reader
  • Dynamic zoom via a new slider control in the browser
  • Smart zoom (double tap)
  • Various bug fixes

The OTA update is available now as we mentioned, so impatient readers can initiate the update immediately. Sprint will begin a network-initiated update push this coming Monday, February 16th, though we’re not sure what regions will get it first. No matter though, you know you’re just going to snag it yourself anyway.
