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

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?
