Samsung Epic 4G Android pre-orders sold out

The world's second 4G phone; the Samsung Epic 4G is on its way and it's hoping to take the EVO's crown

Samsung's Epic 4G will be arriving on the US network Sprint on 31 August priced at $249.99, and it certainly seems its success has already begun after Sprint announced that all of its reservation slots have been taken. Part of the Galaxy S line, the Epic 4G will be the world's second 4G phone (after the HTC EVO) to utilise the stupidly fast WiMAX network that Sprint has pioneered.

Specs include both the 4-inch screen plus the same 1GHz Hummingbird processor as found in the Samsung Galaxy S, Android 2.1 (no word on a FroYo update) and sports a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera. It also has a slide out QWERTY keyboard giving users plenty of options on how to spell out their tweets, statuses and tweets.

Samsung is clearly aiming the Epic 4G towards being the flagship for Samsungs turn-around in sales after the success of the Galaxy S and the huge anticipation of the Galaxy S Tablet which should be dropping in our laps before Christmas. Unfortunately we won't be able to experience the 7.5Mbps download speeds unless connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot, but for now we can see the Epic 4G as a positive step towards making sure WiMAX becomes the norm.

Live in the US? Will you be choosing the EVO or the Epic? Let us know on Twitter or Facebook.
