Well, this has been a long time comin’, hasn’t it? We just got our grubby mitts on that much-debated Samsung Epix i907 and boy… it’s thick! Counting out the AT&T Tilt, this is probably the thickest phone in their line-up. Now, you do get Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional with a touch screen with Haptic feedback, a QWERTY ‘board, optical mouse, 850MHz/1900MHz/2100MHz HSDPA and GPS. So, for some, that might be enough of a reason to overlook the beast-like form of the Samsung Epix. We’re highly disappointed with the screen in general as it looks extremely dated and pixelated — much like the Samsung Omnia. We haven’t had much time to put the phone through our rigorous tests, so check out the unboxing shots in the meantime.
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!
