Samsung Galaxy S 4G Coming to Sprint
What’s in a name, Shakespeare once asked. To Samsung Galaxy S, however, it can mean many. The popular Android phone has been branded as T-Mobile Vibrant, Verizon Fascinate and AT&T Captivate. The latest wireless provider to add it is Sprint, dubbing the smartphone as the Epic 4G. And it will, true to its name, ship with 4G capability.
The Epic 4G retains the same characteristic as its Samsung Galaxy S counterparts. It has a super AMOLED display, sliding Qwerty keyboard, front-facing camera, and runs Android 2.1. The main difference between other Galaxy S being its 4G capability.
Though the 4G connection being offered by Sprint has not reached most areas of the country, Sprint is determined to roll them out gradually to users, as the technology can deliver faster and more cutting-edge speed. A 4G network can transmit data 10 times faster than the 3G one. If your area has not been covered, worry not, as it can still function just fine on 3G network.
The Epic 4G will be battling it out with Sprint’s own EVO 4G. Since the latter is shipping with Android 2.2 OS and costs $50 less – it will be a tough one to win for the Epic 4G.
