Sprint Gets Another 4G Smartphone: Samsung Epic 4G

Another 4G smartphone on Sprint? Yep, and we get the idea that Sprint will be milking that 4G headstart as much as possible over the next few months. With the HTC EVO 4G still firmly in the spotlight, Samsung is introducing America's 2nd 4G smartphone, though Sprint does point out that this is the first in the US with a slide-QWERTY keyboard and AMOLED touch screen. The screen on this new Epic 4G isn't nearly as large as the EVO 4G, but for those who strongly prefer real keyboards to virtual ones, it's a no-brainer.

Basically, the Epic 4G is a Galaxy S smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard, complete with a front-facing camera, 4" Super AMOLED display, access to Samsung's Media Hub, DLNA support, Android 2.1, a six-axis sensor that fine tunes its accelerometer's ability to interpret simple movements of the device, and a 1GHz Hummingbird processor.

There's also a 5MP camrecorder and camera with 720p recording, Visual Voicemail, Mobile HotSpot support, Wi-Fi and a 1500mAh battery. Sprint's not being too giving when it comes to price, but we would be shocked to see it sell for over $200 on contract.
