Have you seen this Halo commercial? Or wait, maybe it is a Droid commercial from Verizon? Well those are both wrong, It is the Sprint commercial for the Samsung Epic 4G. Is Sprint feeling the heat from the Droid style commercials from Verizon?

Well look what we have here, its an LG Android equipped handset that looks similar to the Galaxy S, on a smaller scale. Packed below it's 3.2 inch capacitive display, is a Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a 5 megapixel camera on back. It will be running 2.2 and have some sort of new UI that we have apparently not seen before.
We know, there have been whisperings of 2.2 coming to the Galaxy S phones in the early fall, and now we have a screen shot that could bring some truth to that. It's only a screen shot, but surely this is an early build that is being tested.

Samsung has announced, that they have shipped one million Android 2.1 Galaxy S devices, since the starting date of July 15th. These are very impressive numbers for the short amount of time that the Series of phones have been available. One of the main reasons that the devices have been such a success, is the availability of the devices on multiple carriers.
Seems like the Galaxy Tab has been showing up all kinds of places lately, along with the accessories. Here, a pre-release version was spotted in Israel, this morning. It was said that the device was running 2.2 with a slightly upgraded user interface. You can obviously see the sticker on the device that says CDMA, which gives credence that the device, will most likely be available on Verizon or Sprint's network.
