Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch: $99, Where?

For anyone following news of the new Samsung Galaxy S II, will know that the phone in all its entirety has taken over the smartphone world. Although the mighty device hasn’t been around for long, its certainly dominating others but for how long? On what seems to be a daily basis, we’ll constantly bringing you news, just recently its been about a white version although a tad bit on the expensive side, a new LTE version, news of Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD racing game available to download for free, Wirefly offering Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch version for a price of $149.99 and yesterday we embedded a walk through video of this model courtesy of again Wirefly.

Today for those waiting Stateside for the Galaxy S II’s arrival, its news of Sprint’s Epic that has caught our eye. This very Galaxy S II version has slightly changed from the international and Korean models. Changes include a bigger 4.5-inch Super Amoled Plus display compared to a 4.3-inch, as Slashgear pointed out a rounded off chassis and the benefit of Sprint’s WiMax 4G network.

Instead of a cost of $199.99, Walmart have gone one step further in enticing customers to shop with them. Wirefly as mentioned were offering the Epic for a lowered price of $149.99 but today Walmart will be retailing the phone for $99 on a two-year contract. Indications are pointing to the handset arriving on Sprint on September 16th with rival competitors AT&T and T-Mobile giving us their variants thereafter.

We have to add that if the Galaxy S II isn’t doing it for you, then there are other options coming in the not so distant future? These include a possible Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Prime, a Note, Celox and XCover. Or perhaps changing to a completely different brand is the way to go, check out some from Motorola such as the Droid Bionic, waterproof Defy+, Dinara or Photon 4G or even Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 5.

Tell us whether you are prepared to sign up for a two-year contract and which carrier you are swayed towards? Each model for the three in question will be slightly different but of course it comes down to personal preference and what you are prepared to pay out in the beginning?
