Sprint Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Launching September 16th

By  |  5 Comments

Tonight is the big night and it has started off with an absolute bang. All three major U.S. carriers that were expected to announce the Samsung Galaxy S II did announce the Samsung Galaxy S II and Sprint will be taking the cake as the first provider to launch the device. The Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch will launch on September 16th and it will cost a grand total of $199 after a new two year contract.

The device is exactly what we told you about earlier. A dual-core powered beast with a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display.

For those of you that are interested, the device is going to be going up for pre-order today in participating Sprint stores. You’ll have to put $50 down for a Sprint gift card and you’ll also be put on a Device Wait List so that you can waltz in and grab one on September 16th.

    I will consider it but will wait until the other phones that are due out in September and October before making a decision.  I still want dual core 4G LTE.  It’s really difficult to jump at the first high end phone coming out when several more will be coming out.  I guess its alright for those who are impatient and just can’t wait and are willing to put up with a Wimax network that is less than stellar.

    Why get this phone on a two year contract when it will not be able to use Sprint’s LTE network next year?
