"Sprint's adding a second 4G, Android-powered smartphone to its
portfolio, the Samsung Epic, available now for pre-order and on
sale Aug. 31, and the first reviews out today are calling it an
impressive sibling to the HTC Evo 4G.
"The Epic 4G supports Sprint's WiMax, or the fourth-generation
of wireless network technology which offers faster data
transmission speeds, but will default to the 3G network in places
where WiMax is not available.
"In addition to being an Android 4G phone, the price of the Epic
also makes it stand out, as it will cost $249.99 with a two-year
service agreement, which is $50 more than the Evo 4G and the basic
iPhone 4 with 16GB, both of which are priced at $199, the industry
standard for high-end handsets."
