AT&T’s Samsung i907 is called Epix

Well, there goes BlackJack III… We just got a hot tip from one of our readers and it clearly shows what we all knew as the Samsung i780 dressed up in AT&T branding as the AT&T Epix. There’s also been some physical tweaks to make the device more polished. Specs? There’s the awesome optical joystick which doubles as the select button for the 5-way d-pad, Windows Mobile Professional 6.1, UMTS/HSDPA, and GPS. We weren’t briefed on the other specs, but you can be sure there’s a camera (with VideoShare likely) and Bluetooth. We were also told to look for it to launch around the same time-frame as the AT&T Fuze for probably around $199 after MIR. Samsung, you’re doing alright, but you’ve got to learn how make QWERTY keyboards, ok?

A Whole Lotta Samsungs coming to AT&T

There are a slew of new Samsung devices coming to AT&T pretty soon, most of which have already been rumored here, but now some of the phones have been semi-confirmed. First off is the long-rumored Blackjack III or i907 which is for release on October 21. It seems that the Blackjack III will be very similar to the i780. We’ll find out exactly what it is like in just a few weeks. Next up is the Samsung A767 “Sangria.” Wow, really? What a name, and paired with Mirage it seems Samsung would soon launch an ad campaign with people texting each other in Ibiza, Spain. The Sangria is supposedly much like the i620 and i640 minus Windows Mobile. So, if you’re a fan of slider phones with full QWERTY keyboards, keep your eyes peeled for this one. Lastly, there is the A867, or the Mirage. Based on the sketch above, it’s pretty clear that it will be much like the Omnia. And, if it is anything like we guessed, it will be a touchscreen device with a 5MP camera, 8 or 16GB of internal storage, and HSPA/UMTS. Samsung fans have a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks for AT&T!
