Press shots of the Samsung Epic Touch 4G leak with the September 9 date on the homescreen
Samsung Epic Touch 4G date on the leaked pictures is set at September 9 on the homescreen, which might mean hitting the shelves officially on that day, 10 days after the announcement. This 9/9 date also suspiciously coincides with the rumored ETF hike from $200 to $350 for "advanced devices" which will be activated on or after September 9.
Finally, after the February announcement and April availability worldwide, Samsung seems to have ironed out the kinks with the US carriers, and a Samsung Galaxy S II release on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile looks imminent. The launch event got postponed by a day because of the hurricane, but tomorrow all systems should be a go.
