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.
