I hope you are right. One thing that should be looked at:
It looks like Sprint and Samsung are sponsoring this event together.....i think this could have something to do with the Galaxy S II launch (AKA the Samsung Within) I dont think this could just be a coincidence?????????
Well, hopefully Sprint get's two version of this phone or the one with the keyboard so I can replace my Epic 4g; I mean the greedy evil other carrier has two coming to their customer..SPRINT are you here, please click on the link!.
@gregurbo: No, no, no !! The thinnest, most advanced supercell in the world does not need an archaic hardware keyboard grossing up the design. Besides that's what the Epic 2 is for.
I'd have to agree, Using a toucjh screen for some things is rediculous, I bought the Epic specifically for that reason (apart from the rest of the specs) Dialing in to computers remotely as well as playing games and doing long form written stuff is a pain to me on just a touch screen, the Galaxy s II looks like a solid handset but I'll be hoping for a sprint branded qwerty to show up.
You are correct Just like the Galaxy S line before it the Epic 2 will be the galaxy s 2 model with a keyboard, its rumored to be 3rd quarter this year.
