RESTON, VA – August 24, 2010 — Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced that it is hosting a pre-sale for the highly anticipated Samsung Epic™ 4G, a premium Android-powered smartphone from the award-winning Samsung Galaxy S™ smartphone lineup. Available exclusively from Sprint (NYSE: S), Wirefly customers can now pre-order the Samsung Epic 4G on Wirefly.com before it officially hits stores’ shelves later this month – and at a special Wirefly price, backed by a 30 day pre-order price guarantee.
Samsung Epic 4G has the distinction of being the second 4G-capable handset from Sprint and the only 4G Samsung Galaxy S smartphone. In addition to operating on the Sprint 4G network and Sprint 3G network (depending on user location), the Samsung Epic 4G is powered by the Android 2.1 operating system, comes equipped with an ultra-fast 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application processor for faster upload and download times and has built-in mobile hotspot capability that allows up to five Wi-Fi equipped devices to simultaneously connect to either Sprint 3G Network or Sprint 4G Network. The mobile hotspot is an optional charge of $29.99 per month.
The sleek smartphone has a stunning 4″ Super AMOLED™ touchscreen display that gives users a vivid, high-definition-like viewing experience ideal for watching videos, TV, playing games, surfing the web, texting and emailing. The already robust entertainment experience is only going to get better with the impending launch of Samsung Media Hub where Epic 4G users will be able to rent or purchase movies and TV shows directly from their phones.
Samsung Epic 4G is a social networking and messaging powerhouse. It is the only Galaxy S smartphone to offer a slide-out, full QWERTY keyboard in addition to the virtual keyboard and Swype technology, which allows users to input text faster and more intuitively with one continuous finger motion across the virtual keyboard. It also features an advanced 5-megapixel camera/camcorder with 4x digital zoom, autofocus, and power LED flash for HD video recording1 as well as a front-facing VGA camera for video chat. With Samsung’s ALLShare service, users can then wirelessly share their photos and videos with their friends and family on their Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified devices, including HDTVs.
Customers looking to purchase this hot new device and all of the useful accessories that go along with it do not have to wait until its official launch date. The Samsung Epic 4G is now available at a special pre-order price on www.wirefly.com for new and upgrade-eligible Sprint customers with a two-year agreement. Customers can take comfort knowing that the Epic 4G is protected by Wirefly’s 30 Day Pre-Order Price Guarantee. If the price of the device on Wirefly.com drops below the pre-order price within 30 days of the August 31 launch date, Wirefly will automatically refund the difference to customer’s credit card. And, as always, every Wirefly order comes with fast, free FedEx shipping.
