Sprint 4G Coverage in Roseville, CA - New Android Phones (Samsung Epic 4G, Samsung Intercept)
We visited the Sprint Store in Roseville, California yesterday and...surprise, surprise...their new Samsung Epic 4G (which was just released for sale on August 31, 2010) was on 4G! Huh??? After reading about the 4G coverage areas online, I thought it was only currently available in Stockton, Modesto (and elsewhere) and "in the works" for San Francisco and San Jose. There was no mention of it coming to the Sacramento area, but there it was...4G coverage!
The HTC Evo 4G (pictured above left) has a very large screen and (of course) is a very large phone...with no slide-out keyboard. The Samsung Epic 4G (two of them are pictured above right) has a smaller screen but it's also a smaller phone than the Evo...and it has a slide-out keyboard. One more thing...the Epic 4G's display is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!
Samsung Epic 4G (as compared to my iPhone 3G)
PROS: Amazing display, slide-out keyboard, swipe keyboard option, voice commands, 16MB Micro SD card included, front-facing camera, flash, video camera, built-in Wi-Fi for up to 5 devices (add'l cost of $30/mo.)
CONS: $249 price tag + $10 more per month (for 4G?)
The only other Sprint Android phone that will be compatible with the 2.2 upgrade is the affordably priced Samsung Intercept (pictured below center, phone 5 of 7), which I thought was our only sensible option, until finding out that 4G coverage is on its way to the entire Sacramento area. Now I'm a little torn between the two...4G for $249 vs. Satin Pink for $99?
Samsung Intercept (as compared to my iPhone 3G):
PROS: Stylish Satin Pink color, $99 price tag, slide-out keyboard, swipe keyboard option, voice commands, video camera, compact size
CONS: Rev-0 (not Rev-A), smaller screen size
Sprint offers new customer a 30-day trial period, so we'll see how it goes when our phones arrive. I think Bob's going to change his to the Samsung Epic 4G...but for now I'm keeping my Satin Pink Samsung Intercept! :)
