Droid 2 Review

It's been over nine months since we reviewed Motorola's first DROID smartphone, the Verizon handset that arguably reversed the company's fall from grace and set their foundations as a key player in the Android segment. Now, in an increasingly competitive smartphone market, Motorola have returned to their pivotal handset for a much-anticipated makeover, the Motorola DROID 2.

Sprint Epic 4G Review

Sprint Epic 4G Review

Sprint 4G smartphones may be thin on the ground, but that doesn't mean the Samsung Epic 4G gets a free pass into our favors; there's plenty of strong competition among the smartphone ecosystem, even if you're limiting your choices to devices running the Android OS. Some - like the Nexus One - get Android updates sooner, while others - like the DROID X - have bigger screens and higher-resolution cameras. Hardware keyboards may be more rare, but the Epic 4G isn't alone in that segment either. Still, with a Super AMOLED display, high-speed connectivity and all Samsung's multimedia bells & whistles, the Epic 4G certainly stands a good chance of being Sprint's best smartphone. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint Available August 31st for $249.99, Reservations Beginning August 13th

Sure enough, August 11th turned out to be something worthwhile. Thanks to Samsung, we can now safely say that we know when the Epic 4G, Sprint's second 4G-equipped device, will be hitting the airwaves this year. The Epic 4G is the most distinct variation of the Samsung Galaxy S devices launching here in the States: featuring a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor under the hood, a full physical QWERTY keyboard on a landscape slider, and Samsung's proprietary TouchWiz 3.0 User Interface overlaying Android 2.1, the Epic 4G also sits high on the hill thanks to its ability to connect to Sprint's 4G WiMAX network.

Samsung Epic 4G Official for Sprint

One might imagine that this had come out of left field, but if you'll recall, we've actually seen this phone before. It broke cover thanks to a tipster, and while we had originally put the moniker Galaxy S Pro on it, obviously Sprint and Samsung had a different agenda. Courtesy of Sprint, we've got official word that the Samsung Epic 4G (have to love the new trend, right?) is indeed coming "soon," and it's packing quite a mean punch.
