SlashGear Reviews Samsung Epic 4G Android Smartphone

epic 4g 15 SlashGear 540x395

“At 4.90 x 2.54 x 0.56 inches the Epic 4G can’t really be called discrete. It’s a hefty chunk of matte and gloss finish black and silver plastic, wider than the DROID X, and with Samsung eschewing metal but still opting for premium materials that feel suitably high-end. We’d generally prefer metal construction, but the weight impact on the Epic 4G would likely have been significant (already it’s 5.46oz). Up top there’s a 3.5mm headphone socket together with a microUSB port covered with a sliding door; on the left edge is the volume rocker and on the right the power/lock key and a camera shortcut. Under the Teflon-coated bowed back panel is a microSD slot, with Samsung including a 16GB card in the box and the Epic 4G supporting up to 32GB cards. There’s also the sizeable 1,500mAh battery.” Read more here:

Samsung to Release iPod Touch Rival with Android!

“It’s well known that Samsung are planning on releasing an Android tablet, but the South Korean firm looks to be wanting to encroach upon Apple’s territory a little further by releasing an Android powered rival to the iPod Touch. The device has been making an appearance in some pictures released onto the web and will apparently be known as the YP-MB2. If the name is all that catchy it should at least do better in the looks department, resembling a Samsung Galaxy S as it does. To be blunt the device is pretty much a Samsung Galaxy S through and through, minus the phone features of course. Oh and the camera is bumped dwon to a 3 MP effort, but still fine for general picture taking. The rest of the specifications should remain the same e.g. 1 GHz Snapdragon, 4 inch SAMOLED screen, etc.” via
