Sprint’s customers can now reserve their Samsung Epic 4G, the first 4G handset with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Quantities are limited so heard over to Sprint.com/Epic4G to stake your claim before it’s too late.
Those who reserve the Epic 4G will be able to complete their purchase on August 31st by visiting a local Sprint location. You’ll have until 6:00 pm on September 1st to get your phone and then your reservation will be canceled and the phone will be made available to the next purchaser.
The Epic 4G will cost $349 plus taxes and fees with a 2-year contract, but Sprint is offering a $100 mail in rebate. Current customers who are not eligible for an upgrade will have to pay the full price of $499.99.
Like the HTC EVO 4G, the Epic requires Sprint’s $10 per month Premium Data add-on. Sprint offers 4G service in over 40 markets and counting so visit Sprint.com/4G to check your coverage.
