"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."
