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.

Fireworks Through a Screen Door
Although everything looks very 'poppy' , this is the worst screen of anything this resolution. The Droid Incredible has a 'slight' screen door effect- on the Epic 4G it's -significantly- worse than any other phone sold today in that price range, especially with any white/black text combination.
I can't wait to see this phone in action.
