Today is a big day for Sprint as it has just released its highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S II device, the Samsung Epic 4G Touch. The Epic 4G Touch is the first Galaxy S II device to hit American soil and its launch will be followed by AT&T’s in just a few short days and by T-Mobile’s launch of the Galaxy S II at some point during the fall.
Sprint’s Galaxy S II is available for $199 through Sprint itself, at the cost of a new two-year contract. Or, you can step around Sprint’s offer and take a look at the deal that Wirefly has going on for the device. It’s selling it for $150 for new Sprint customers.
The Epic 4G Touch is a high-end smartphone and one that definitely is worth a look if you’re in the market for a new smartphone.
