Following the example set by AT&T and T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy SII variants, Sprint's Epic 4G Touch is set to get its own white counterpart, probably in early 2012. Pocket Now speculates that the Epic 4G Touch's white version may be announced at CES.
Personally, I'm hoping Sprint has a little more to talk about at CES than their own white SII, but the paint job does look rather flattering. While the above shot is all we have to go on for now, we'll be here to cover any other details that may emerge.

MC3: Sebastian (Stoicescu?)
MC3: Christen Thompson
Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!
You thought we'd stop the prize train because it's Sunday? Well, here at Android Police, we give away awesome stuff seven days a week during the holidays, so we've got a bag of goodies for you today, courtesy of RadioShack.
Even in the event you do win one of the great phones we've got up for grabs today, you might want to check out RadioShack this holiday season regardless - they've got a whole bunch of phones you can get free today on new 2-year agreements on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon as part of their holiday free phone sale.
After a rollercoaster of emotions and months of waiting, the back-from-mythical Galaxy Nexus was finally released on Verizon yesterday, but were the main reasons for the delays, in fact, related to unstable and poor connectivity? I've had endless problems with connectivity on the Thunderbolt (even with the latest firmware), and plenty of you had similar issues with pretty much all other LTE devices.
Are you ready for another awesome giveaway? This may be our best one yet (but trust us - we've got some even better ones coming), and once again, it's open to a whole host of countries around the world (we've added a few more EU countries, so check the eligibility list). For your consideration, today we have 3 Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 bundles up for grabs, which include the Tegra-powered Galaxy Tab 8.9, Jambox wireless Bluetooth speaker, and $25 AMEX gift card.
Update: If your device received the update but didn't successfully install it, a fix is on the way. There's no official word as to when it will be available, but they're shooting for sometime next week.
Looks like Sprint started pushing a small OTA update to the Samsung Epic 4G Touch that fixes a couple of quirky issues:
4G Sprint Hotspot disconnects when in a phone call
Radio loses signal and may require power cycle
The update is rolling out in stages and will hit all devices within the next 10 days.
Google Android software engineer Jean-Baptiste Queru has just let loose a factory image of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, meaning developers now have an official software build to recover from bricks and to tinker with to their hearts' contents. You can find the image, ITL41D, here. The post also indicates more Verizon Galaxy Nexus goodies will be coming later, so we'll keep you updated as more is released.
American Airlines began rolling out Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets to premium cabins today, giving premium passengers innumerable ways to pass time on long flights. The initial rollout sounds quite impressive, covering select transcontinental and other domestic flights, and offering 70 movies on top of the Tab's numerous other entertainment options.
In addition to the rich entertainment experience provided by the Tab, First and Business Class customers will have access to Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones, which should drown out any distractions for a slightly more pleasant flight.
Oh, you thought we'd be doing just one mega-holiday giveaway a day for ten days? You thought wrong. Now, we realize the first contest we held today was for our US readers only, so we're going to give the international crowd some love with this one. You can thank our friends over at NVIDIA who are always happy to offer some Tegra-powered awesomeness to our worldwide audience, this time in the form of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 32GB Wi-Fi edition.
An early version of the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM built by Samsung itself and complete with TouchWiz has been leaked today to the folks at SamMobile. They've quickly put together this video to demonstrate exactly what Samsung has been cooking up for the upcoming update - and that would be a whole lot of TouchWiz on top of the beautiful ICS UI we've been admiring so far:
Ever since I got the SGS II in the U.S., I don't mind TouchWiz as much (though those click sounds make me cringe every time), but it's kind of starting to look and feel old compared to Ice Cream Sandwich itself.
