Epic has GPS issue fixed out of box?

Quote:
If you own a Galaxy S anywhere in the world or you're thinking of buying one, you're probably well-acquainted at this point with the GPS issues it's been suffering that prevent you from getting anything close to a precise lock on your location -- it might not be a deal-breaker for some, but for anyone planning on using their phone for turn-by-turn nav or fitness tracking (for instance) it's a big deal. Samsung's already committed to updating released versions of the phone in September, but what about the upcoming Epic 4G? Our testing suggests that it's functional -- Google Maps was able to give us extremely precise positions very quickly -- and a statement we've received from Samsung seems to corroborate that:
"We have tested and validated both Network Assisted (indoor) and Autonomous (outdoor) GPS on the Epic 4G. With regards to Vibrant and Captivate, we are currently testing software updates which will optimize GPS performance. We expect to be able to make the updates available in September and will communicate more information and download instructions in the next few weeks."
In other words, the Captivate and the Vibrant have the bug and will be fixed next month; the Epic, meanwhile, should be good to go when it launches on the 31st. Cheers to that, we say.

Sure that would be cool!...maybe want to make a thread for it to see if people have questions that you can answer for them?

One thing I wanna know is if you take out the battery, is there a sim slot? (I know chances are no but there were some rumors about it and just want to get them cleaned up lol)

Yeah I know that..but I don't think GSM was in the FCC for the TP2 either because it was locked for the US..I'm wondering the possibility that maybe its there but locked by firmware...of course it is possible that the SIM slot was removed after the proto-type as well..or maybe they are gonna pull a Droid 2 on us and release later a World Edition lol...but just check on it when you get to see it, if your not allowed to take a pic thats fine I'll take your word for it.
