Samsung Epic 4G and Sanyo Zio to get Froyo updates on February 21st

A new source contacted BGR on Thursday with details surrounding much awaited Android 2.2 (Froyo) updates for the Samsung Epic 4G and the Sanyo Zio from Sprint. In line with previous rumors, the Samsung Epic 4G will apparently be updated to Froyo starting on February 21st — though our source claims the build number will be EB13, a later build than the EA17 update referenced in earlier rumors. The update will be delivered over the air (OTA), and will be rolled out across the country over the course of four days. Listed changes include improved Bluetooth device support, Bluetooth voice dialing, Flash Player 10.1, GPS enhancements, improved OS performance and ability to install applications to external storage. Hit the break for details on the Zio. More →

Best Buy Mobile reveals new Free Phone Friday special for October 22

This week’s specials are in, and the folks over at your local Best Buy Mobile location have a few solid treats in store. Free Phone Friday, for those who failed Obvious 101, is a promotion that gives customers a new selection of free phones each week in October… on Friday. Here is this week’s lot:

  • Samsung Fascinate (Verizon Wireless)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (AT&T)
  • Sanyo Zio (Sprint)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (T-Mobile)

As you might imagine, each phone requires a new 2-year contract to be had for the low, low price of nada. As you also might imagine, this offer is only good for one day — Friday, October 22 — so get ready to head out bright and early Friday morning if you’d like to partake. Or, of course, you can just order these puppies up from the Best Buy Mobile website. More →
