Review: Samsung Epic 4G

The Samsung Epic 4G brings a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to Sprint's 4G lineup and to Samsung's Galaxy S family. Does this super powered Android live up to its name?
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. It packs the power and the bright, colorful Super AMOLED screens of the Galaxy S family with a huge keyboard hidden away. 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.
