Walmart Offering the Samsung Epic 4G Touch for $99 With new 2-Year Contract


The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S II is starting to hit the US market and while Sprint’s Epic 4G Touch was supposed to be the first subsidized Galaxy S II, it was beat to the punch by Alaska’s GCI. Since most of us don’t have the pleasure of residing in “The Last Frontier,” we’re still going to have to wait a week until Sprint releases the Epic 4G Touch. In the meantime, we’ve come across a pretty sweet deal for anyone looking to join the Sprint network.

Walmart, everyone’s favorite discount store, is offering up the Samsung Epic 4G Touch to customers for $99 when they sign up for a new 2-year contract with Sprint. Current Sprint customers looking to renew their contract will be paying $154.99, which is still a great price for a phone of this caliber. Too put things into perspective, the Galaxy S II features specs comparable to big boys such as Verizon’s Motorola Droid Bionic yet the Bionic is selling for $299 with a 2-year contract (outrageous isn’t it).

While there are sure to be numerous phones on the horizon that will put the Galaxy S II to shame, it’s definitely a top contender at this moment and if you think about it, there’s always something better on the horizon. If you’ve been waiting to pick up a new phone and have been looking to switch carriers, this is one deal you’re not going to want to pass up. Seriously, a 1.2GHz dual core processor with a 4.52″ Super AMOLED Plus display for $99 is an Android user dream come true. This might just be the push I was looking for to get me away from Verizon and into something a little more wallet friendly. Get your pre-order on by following the link below. Enjoy!
