Wirefly is accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch; priced at $150 only
Out of all the unveiled US versions of the Samsung Galaxy S II, it’s only Sprint’s version, the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, which managed to give us a concrete launch date of September 16th – plus, it’s officially priced at $199.99 on-contract.

Right now, online retailer Wirefly is accepting pre-orders for the handset, but more importantly, they’re treating us all with a slightly better on-contract pricing of only $149.99 for new and upgrade customers. Indeed, the $50 savings is undoubtedly nice for a high-powered smartphone that’s filled to the brim with some dreamy hardware specs.

So if you’d rather beat out the traffic that might be expected at Sprint retail stores come launch day, then it’d might be a bright idea to pick yourself a pre-order right now. Naturally, it’ll ease your mind just a bit knowing that you’re guaranteed a unit when the big day arrives.

wow maybe big red can take a lesson here and not sell their failed bionic for $300 gs2 is so much better anyway too bad big red wanted to give that failed phone a chance and bypassed the gs2.

Bionic wouldn't have been such a bad phone if the bootloader was unlocked. Motorola/HTC can learn from Sammy. A locked bootloader is ALWAYS a deal breaker for me and I can guarantee you it is the cause for low sales on a LOT of phones.

I want the Epic 4G Touch but from what I hear, Samsung is slow to update the OS on their phones. If that is true I will stick with HTC phones.

Thats not true anymore they have changed an most of time it is carrier fault because the international phones get updated regularley

its running 2.3.4 from the start, you aren't going to be getting any better than that until ice cream and you know it'll be reserved for the prime only for some time.

Yeah but they made the nexus s and are suppose to be making the nexus prime too and we all know that the pure Google devices get updates pretty fast. but it is also true that their non pure Google devices are slow to update.

a lot of 3rd party retailers offer phones much cheaper than the carrier does. They want your business

between the exynos+ mali400 and the ti omap 4460 with the clocked up powerVR sgx540 which is better?

Does anyone know if the rumor is true that the new epic uses the same radio as in the Nexus S? Reason is I have one and even post update it does not lock onto evdo, wimax, or heck even wifi for anything!

just pre-orderd mine :-) Now im just waiting for sprint to approve my order and i sit back and wait till like the 18th because its gonna take like 2 days to get to me :-( for 157.98 there is nothing to complain about. 149.99 for the phone and 7.99 for shipping is awesome. way better than if i would buy in store, it would cost me like 250 with tax. thank you phonearena for the great deal! :-)

Great device I must say, I applaud samsung but I roll real strong with HTC and the EVO BRAND of devices nothing is better. Htc is ahead of the game in the industry of updates they understand how to support there handsets and make sure updates arrive normally espically on SPRINT..Samsung has feel off totally in this arena they will only suport the newest device nothing old...So in my world HTC IS KING....
