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.
