Samsung Epic 4G will be Sprint's second WiMAX phone with Android
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 28, 2010, 6:54 AM
The Samsung Epic 4G's capabilities have been further improved with the addition of a 6-axis motion sensor (similar to what the iPhone 4 has, we'd assume), which opens new possibilities for games and applications to take advantage of.
Another addition to the multimedia department will be video and music downloads available to purchase or rent from an upcoming Samsung Media Hub content store, which will be “powered by some of the biggest names in entertainment”. Oh, it also promises visual voicemail, e-books by Amazon and B&N, confirmed upgrade to Android 2.2, and mobile hotspot capabilities.
Samsung just upped the ante for Android in the US with another compelling handset on Sprint. It looks like this is all shaping to be a pivotal year in smartphone land, when finally the dream to carry one device that does it all may come to fruition. So many great offerings, so many maxed out credit cards.

It's a smart move by Sprint. First introducing Evo 4G crazy phone to attract attention then quickly introduce another 4G phone with QWERTY for some ppl's special liking...

Yep, it's funny cause it's pretty much the same thing the did with the Hero and Moment, Hero came first followed by the higher stat Moment a few months later, now EVO came first followed by the higher stat Epic. Sprint gives you a cookie and then shows you the cake later lol

haha? besides the slide out keyboard the epic has nothing on the EVO..coming straight from a sprint rep. In this case i'd say Sprint gave you the entire cake first and then suprised you with a delicious muffin (epic). haha

Wow, not too many bad things being said about Sprint and this phone, in this thread, I see. Looks like Sprint is quieting you Apple/VZW Fanboy losers.
