Samsung Epic 4G is Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S variant, with a few special tricks!

Sprint has announced its new Galaxy S class variant ‘super phone’ from Samsung and its very clear Samsung has got its phasers set to ‘stun’ in regards to their competition. For the first time in nearly five years, every major US carrier will carry the same phone from the same manufacturer. This is amazing as Google tried, and failed on its own, to do this. Sprints version is arguably the best as its got some great key features that distinguish it from its otherwise ordinary peers.

One, It has a slide out physical keypad (this is huge, as very few high-end Android phones posses them) and Two; is Sprints nascent (but growing) 4G Wi-MAX service capable (if you live in a major metropolitan area, chances are you’ll have 4G service very soon). Not clear as of now is a software build that will have some special, key Sprint exclusive bundled in for multimedia purposes.

I am waiting to hear from Sprint if I can get a review unit and If I do, will write a through practical review comparing it to the EVO 4G and of course, iPhone 4.
