Epic 4G launch accessories to include chargers, cases, leaked playbook states

Itching to know what Epic 4G accessories will be available at launch? A look at the latest Sprint Playbook (that internal document that might as well be posted on its website) gives us a pretty good look. Screen protectors, a smattering of cases, media dock and battery chargers should all be on hand. Standard fare, to be sure, but it's nice to see that some of the official Samsung accessories announced the other day will be on hand.

We get another look at pricing -- $499 outright (which actually isn't bad at all), and $249 after contract and rebate. We already knew that, but it's nice to reiterate that you'll actually be spending $350 up front. Also interesting in the Playbook is that apparently you'll be forced to activate the phone when it's purchased, even if you buy it at the full unsubsidized price. No "cold phone purchases," it says. (Is that SOP?)

You can check out the whole thing at the source link. [SDX Developers] Thanks, Numus.
