The Samsung Epic 4G is officially coming August 31st, and if any of Sprint’s past high-profile launches are anything to go by, then they’ll be shipping some phones to stores early for their “advocates” (employees that will extensively use the device to get familiar with it and train the rest of their team) to sink their teeth into. It appears that may have already happened as a tipster of TalkAndroid‘s sent them first shots of what appears to be the Epic’s retail packaging.
It doesn’t look like the cheap-feeling and looking egg carton box that their HTC EVO 4G sat inside of (before you ruthlessly ripped it from its resting place), but perhaps that was just an HTC thing. August 31st is just under two weeks away. Are you all set to pick up your Epic 4G?
