Sprint adds to their 4G phones with the new Samsung Epic Touch 4G, running Android Gingerbread (2.3). It features a very large 4.52-inch AMOLED touch screen with 480×800 pixels (not particularly high res, just large pixels). For all that size in those two dimensions, it’s amazingly svelte, at .38 inches thick. It claims up to 8 hours of talk time.

It has a fast 1.2 GHz dual-core Samsung Exynor processor and has Samsung’s own skin over the Android OS, as well as Samsung Media Hub, their way of providing movies and other content, and access to Sprint TV and movies. There is support for the included Cisco WebEx Meetings and Anyconnect VPN software for business, as well. It has an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1 megapixel front-facing camera.

Sprint has some great 4G phone options, this one is a great premium addition.
