Hate to burst anyone's bubble (and we don't care what you've heard, we really do hate to do it), but the Sprint Epic 4G isn't yet shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. We asked Sprint, and sure enough it's just a typo. Not the first time we've seen this happen, and it won't be the last, either. That's why we check. folks.
Don't worry. Gingerbread's coming to the Epic 4G. We wouldn't say it if it weren't true. And because we're saying it, it must now happen. Otherwise the sun and the stars would collapse in on themselves, and nobody wants that to happen. Right, Sprint?
