Sprint's latest 4G phone meets the FCC

Sprint's latest 4G phone meets the FCC
Oh, to be a suit-wearing, pencil pushing, rubber stamp stamping FCC examiner. You get paid to test out the latest and greatest handsets and get to know them on a model number basis before the public ever gets to hold one. And as an FCC examiner, you hold the life of the device right in the palm of your hand. One check mark, and the phone has to go back to be re-engineered. The latest big name to go through the Feds is Sprint's Epic 4G. This model is a variant of Samsung's Galaxy S Pro. The specs are the same as for the Galaxy S, but the "Pro" means that the device has a landscape sliding, physical QWERTY keyboard. For the carrier, this will be its second 4G model to be offered after the EVO 4G. No word as to when we can expect the phone to be released.

Each one of the nation's top 4 carriers will be offering a version of the model. T-Mobile and AT&T have already launched the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate, respectively. Verizon is expected to launch the Samsung Fascinate sometime later this year. All three of those handsets are variants of the Galaxy S which means that they are not equipped with the QWERTY keyboard.

This phone is going to be EPIC!!!!! haha. great name. Its about time Sprint takes the lead in getting some great android phones. Im excited for the Epic's 6-axis accelerometer. Its going to make gaming sooo awesome. Oh and its the only version of the Galaxy series that has a led flash and a full keyboard. So take that Big Red and Little Blue.

I am with you M3rkSauce! It is great to see Sprint get in the game with the better variant of all the Galaxy S phones, and it is 4G on top of the better feature set!
