Fort Worth, Texas
- RadioShack  is adding Samsung's
Android-powered Galaxy S-series phones.

The units are the
Samsung Epic for Sprint, Vibrant for T-Mobile and Captivate for AT&T, which
are all  equipped with a 4-inch
super-AMOLED screen and 1-GHz processor for HD video playback providing
multimedia features.

"The Samsung
Galaxy S smartphones seamlessly combine leading edge technologies to deliver a
stunning entertainment, social networking and gaming experience," said Daniel
Liberman, mobility senior VP for RadioShack.

"By offering the
Galaxy S smartphones from three national carriers, RadioShack provides both
exceptional choice and unbiased advice in selecting the right phone, carrier,
and service plan for your lifestyle."

RadioShack will
offer a limited number of pre-orders for Samsung Epic 4G from Sprint
starting Aug. 13.  Sprint is the only national wireless carrier offering
4G service in 48 markets, placing blazing fast content downloads in the
customer's hands. Samsung Epic 4G, the second 4G smartphone from
Sprint this year, will have wireless hotspot capability for up to five
connected devices, a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard and a front-facing
video camera, among other features, the retailer said.

 Eligible RadioShack customers can reserve
Samsung Epic 4G (while supplies last) by purchasing a $50 gift card that is
applied to the purchase price when the device arrives in stores starting Aug.
31.

T-Mobile's
recently launched Samsung Vibrant comes with exclusive, preloaded content,
including Avatar and The Sims 3 game. Samsung Vibrant is available at
RadioShack for $149 (new or upgrading customers with approved credit and
two-year contract). Customers will receive a $50 RadioShack gift card by mail
with the purchase and activation of the Samsung Vibrant, the retailer said.

Samsung Captivate
for AT&T is available for $199.99 (for eligible customers with approved
credit and two-year contract) and in-store customers will receive an immediate $20
accessory credit with activation (for online customers, a $20 accessory credit
is available by mail).
