Epic 4G Touch teardown

First comes the major smartphone launch, then comes the teardown. The folks at iFixit have done their thing to the Samsung Galaxy S II Sprint Epic 4G Touch. And, lo and behold, it's a smartphone! No real surprises so far as the layman (that's us) is concerned, though apparently the Broadcom chip also has FM capabilities. Hardly the first time we've seen that go unused. Anyhoo, if you're into smartphone pr0n, check out the link below.

Sprint Epic 4G Touch torn down, revealed to contain smartphone parts

Of course it has a FM chip, how else are us users supposed to use sprint radio ? Plus I think a radio is advertised as one of the features.

I'm telling you... You can't make this stuff up. Sometimes I think these authors just act dumb on purpose, in order to try and stir things up a bit.

The FM radio is available on the European versions of the SII. I use it all the time. So why disable it on the 4G version?

The app Tunein Radio uses your Data connection (even if you want to connect to a local radio station), so that Sprint app could be similar.

"It contains smartphone parts? Inconceivable!"

"You keep using that word; I don't think it means what you think it means."
