Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint coming August 31, brings QWERTY and WiMAX along

The Samsung Epic 4G will be available at the end of the month – it’s the first Galaxy S phone with a hardware QWERTY keyboard and WiMAX connectivity. Plus it packs all the goodies characteristic for Galaxy S, 4” SuperAMOLED and all…

The Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint packs the screen of the Galaxy S, the 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, the 5MP camera with 720p video and Android 2.1 Eclair with the upgrade to 2.2 Froyo coming soon.

But it adds a slide-out QWERTY to the mix and also WiMAX connectivity (hence the 4G moniker). The Samsung Epic 4G will hit stores including RadioShack, Best Buy and Wal-Mart and also Sprint Stores on August 31. You could reserve a phone using this link – and you’ll have to buy it no later than 6 p.m. on September 1.

The price is 249.99 US dollars after a mail-in rebate with a 2 year contract.
