Samsung Epic, Ahead of the Game
The Samsung Epic 4G is the second smartphone to hit that will be able to use Sprint’s 4G network alongside the HTC EVO 4G. The Samsung Epic 4G is a Samsung Galaxy S class smartphone but is ahead of the game when compared to other Galaxy S devices, and most other smartphones.
Why, because it is enabled for the next generation network. 4G enabled devices are the way forward and any manufacturer that doesn’t push out a 4G device will eventually be left standing in the smartphone supremacy space.
Such smartphones like the iPhone 4, although a good smartphone in its own right doesn’t have the ability to play nice on a 4G network, something many presume Apple will put right when they release the iPhone 5 or rumour has it when the Verizon iPhone appears.
But 4G is happening right now, not in a year or a couple of years but right this minute, and thus far only two 4G devices exist. This single fact puts the Samsung Epic 4G and HTC EVO 4G ahead of the game. Yes Sprint’s 4G coverage isn’t fully rolled out yet but Sprint is also ahead of the game when compared to other carriers.
Verizon continues to roll out their 4G LTE network, and rumour has it that the BlackBerry Storm 3 will be a Verizon 4G handset. AT&T is slowly pushing out their 4G network but in all fairness is way behind in the game. So it looks like for now anyway that the Samsung Epic 4G and sister handset HTC EVO 4G along with Sprint are the kings of the 4G game.
