The Samsung Epic 4G just got an epic price drop, as Sprint has lowered the subsidized price of the smartphone from $250 to $200 with a 2-year contract.
Initially, the Epic 4G debuted at a price that was higher than usual, at $250 subsidized and $600 unsubsidized. But with the price drop, Sprint’s WiMAX-enabled device is now available for a cost much closer to average for a high-end smartphone.
