Is It Your Type?
The Samsung Epic 4G is the only 4G phone on Sprint's lineup with a full QWERTY keyboard, and the only Samsung Galaxy S phone in the U.S. with the slider option.

Though it's a large phone, the nicely rounded edges and fast performance should make it appealing to a wide audience.

I can't wait to see this phone in action.
