Sprint expands 4G coverage as it’s getting ready to launch the Samsung Epic 4G

Sprint has just announced that it’s extending 4G coverage (again) in several markets across the US, including Modesto and Stockton (in California), Jacksonville (Florida), Wilmington (Delaware), and Grand Rapids (Michigan). With these new markets added, the carrier now offers 4G services in 48 US metropolitan areas.

Sprint also says that the Samsung Epic 4G will be available “in the near future.” This could mean starting August 20, as previously rumored – if not, then it’s almost surely a date close to that.

The Samsung Epic is Sprint’s second 4G smartphone (after the quite successful HTC EVO 4G), and it will come with a full QWERTY keyboard, 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 5MP autofocus camera with HD video recording, 1GHz processor, and lots of other features.

    I only wish they would be forthright and tell us how much time before they will restock the phone. What I want is a 4G phone, however if I don't get the Evo I might opt for the Samsung Epic 4G. Verizon's Droid X just won't do it because it is handicapped to a 3G network and it doesn't have a front facing camera for video conferencing. Bactium

    I wish the epic4g would come put already. I only have 30 days to return my iphone4! Seriously, it is the only phone with comparable hardware and the epic4g has a far better serviced and far better os.

    Servicer, sorry. That was an iPhone spelling “correction.”
