There have been numerous reports that Samsung’s Epic 4G has appeared in Sprint stores starting as early as Monday of this week, but not for the general public it is said that these devices are for the Sprint advocates. The Sprint Advocate are those select employees that will be thoroughly using the device to get familiar with the layout and use of the phone and it’s capabilities. These advocates brief other Sprint employees on the use so they will be able to help the general public. The Samsung Epic 4G is officially coming August 31st and we are all patiently waiting for it’s public arrival. TalkAndroid‘s sent the first shots of the Epic’s retail packaging. August 31st is just under two weeks away. Are you all ready for it’s debut in stores?
