Price cut taking Sprint's Samsung Epic 4G Touch under $100 on contract?
Arguably the best variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II available from a major U.S. carrier, the Samsung Epic 4G Touch is being given a nice price cut from Sprint according to a trusted sourcer who passed the info onto TechnoBuffalo. The new $99.99 price with a signed 2-year contract should be enough to make plenty of empty room on the shelves for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III. Sprint is expected to launch the sequel on June 21st, the same day that the price cut allegedly takes effect.

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch is the only one of the models offered by T-Mobile and AT&T to include both the dual-core Exynos processor and the large 4.52 inch display. While the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S II had the same 4.52 inch screen, under the hood it featured a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The AT&T variant matched the Epic 4G Touch under the hood, but had a smaller 4.3 inch screen.

This year, all four major carriers including Verizon will be receiving the 16GB Marble White and Pebble Blue Samsung Galaxy S III and Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile will have the 32GB unit in both colors to sell to customers. For reasons unknown, AT&T is not going to have the 32GB model to sell, and it also will be getting an exclusive red color. All four carriers will be selling the 16GB model for $199.99 with a signed 2-year pact, while the 32GB version will be $249.99 on contract.
