Samsung Epic 4G and Galaxy S Portfolio Distinction

The Samsung Epic 4G will be released on Sprint on August 31st and will form part of the Galaxy S range. The other three versions of the S range the Vibrant from T-Mobile, Captivate on AT&T and the Fascinate on Verizon are already available, but how does the Epic differ?

The distinction is very easy from the outside, as the Epic 4G is the only one with that physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The other difference is that it is the only 4G handset from the Galaxy S Portfolio and only the second on Sprint — the first being the EVO.

Sprint knew from the start that they wanted to make this the better of the Galaxy S range, and it is the 4G that help to achieve this. `We know that Verizon will be offering 4G soon, but for now Sprint is the only carrier to do so”.

Tony Bradley from PC World believes that Sprint is not doing the Epic 4G any favors. One reason is its price – $50 more than the HTC EVO 4G and the complicated route users have to take to get the $100 mail-in rebate. There are better phones on the market, but will you pay that little extra to have one that has 4G?
