While Samsung may have promptly released the kernel source code for Sprint's Epic 4G Touch on release day, it has gone one step further with AT&T's variant and already uploaded the code to its Open Source Release Center. AT&T just announced the launch date of October 2nd this morning, so this makes the code available nearly two weeks before the phone.

Last night, I sent out a message from our social accounts praising the Epic 4G Touch's boot times. They amazed me as soon as I turned this Galaxy S II Sprint variant for the first time last Friday and haven't ceased to amaze me ever since. I have loaded up all the same apps and then some compared to any of my other phones, and still - the Epic 4G Touch blazes by the competition like no other device I've seen.

We've basically known all there is to know about the US versions of the Galaxy S II for a while now, just short of the release date and price for AT&T and T-Mobile.

You can scratch Ma Bell off that list now, though, as it just announced via Twitter that the long-awaited GSII will be available on October 2nd for $200 with a two-year agreement. I'm sure all AT&T customer have the spec list embedded deep into their memory banks in anticipation of this beauty, but just in case you've forgotten, here they are again:

  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter capable of 1080p video
  • 2MP ffc
  • 16GB internal storage
  • microSD slot
  • HDMI out
  • NFC
  • HSPA+
  • Android 2.3.4

Now that you have all the deets, who's going to be standing outside of that big blue storefront on October 2nd waiting for the doors to open and grab one of these?

With the arrival of Honeycomb 3.1 came some really nice features, including one of the most useful to date: USB host support. This allows users to plug thumb drives, external hard drives, mice, keyboards, and more into their tablets and use them with little-to-no hassle.

Out of the many uses for USB host support, adding a game controller to your tablet is a simple way to have more fun with your device -- it improves the experience with a lot of games, especially if, like me, you hate touchscreen controls.

The release of Sprint's Galaxy S II variant before that of other U.S. carriers has left many customers itching for their chance to get one of the hottest Android phones on the market. Daily Steal's Mobile site is holding a sale for the next 22 hours (until midnight September 22), offering an unlocked GSM version of Samsung's latest phone for $499, about $100 less than Amazon's price.

The unlocked SII supports a wide array of networks (a full list is viewable on Daily Steals' website).

If you're a Nexus S 4G owner and you're wondering how to get your hands on Google Wallet and be the first nerd on the block to pay for espresso by tapping your phone, we've received a tip that a software update for the Nexus S 4G has begun rolling out (and will continue to do so over a 4 day period).

The update includes not only the official Google Wallet app, but also Google Shopper and various security patches.

True to last night's rumblings, Google and Sprint have announced the launch of Google Wallet, a revolutionary new tap-to-pay service that allows customers to store credit card information and make payments from one app on their Android phone.

For now Google Wallet is only available to those with a Nexus S 4G and a Citi MasterCard. Google plans on adding support for various other card companies, and more Android devices with NFC capabilities are on the horizon.

Update: It still hasn't been officially announced yet, but the word on the street is that some businesses (such as Peets Coffee & Tea shop in San Francisco) are already displaying the Google Wallet logo near the register. We're definitely getting really close now. [via Phandroid]

For those awaiting the launch of Google Wallet (specifically those with the Sprint Nexus S 4G and a Citibank MasterCard), we've got some good news.

It has only been a  couple of days since Samsung released the source code for the Epic 4G Touch and it looks like the device has already been rooted. Developers Shabbypenguin and Tanimn of Android Creative Syndicate (ACS) have released a pre-rooted tar file and instructions (XDA link) on how to root the shiny new phone. Similarly, XDA member zedomax has also released his method of rooting the device.

After getting the Samsung Epic 4G Touch (that's Sprint's Galaxy S II) on launch day, I had to quite conveniently leave on a planned trip to the wine country half-way between San Francisco and Los Angeles. During this trip, I took this sample video in 720p HD resolution to test the Epic 4G Touch's camera performance I've heard so many great things about from everyone outside the U.S. Considering our review of the E4GT is lacking a video test, I thought this post would be the perfect follow-up.
