    So, I dropped my EVO as my work phone for the Epic. Best decision I have ever made. Here's hoping HP/Palm gives us a horizontal slider.

    Sad to say, but I have joined the Epic bandwagon. I am still learning my way around Android. This phone has some great features, but I miss the gestures of the Pre. We'll see how I feel about it after 29 days.

    I still have my Pre for personal use which is why this is so much fun.

    I have the tmobile version (the vibrant). I have grown to hate it. I just don't understand the allure of Android. Besides notifications, it doesn't really do anything well.

    I picked up an Epic on release day since my contract was up. Yesterday, I gave it to my wife who has to wait till May for a new phone. The epic is a very nice piece of hardware, but webos is sooooo much better than Android. Now my Pre looks small and the screen is not as colorful. I don't care though. As soon as the new Palm phone comes out, I will pick it up.

    .......... I am back with a little bad news.....

    Guess what you can't do with your Epic? 4g hotspot and call at the same time. Returned mine yesterday because, well, that's the very reason I used the EVO and wanted to use the Epic.

    They say it will be fixed in a software update (Froyo?), but I can't wait. Went back to my EVO for work.

    Wow... that totally blows!

    For me the only allure of this phone is the keyboard and amazing screen.

    Of course 4G isn't in Oklahoma City that I am aware of anyway so that does me no good at all.

    I am fumbling around the OS and have found a few apps (thanks to some folks here on PreCentral) to help make it more manageable. But I suspect it won't be really the way I want it unless I root and tweak it up just like I do with my Pre's.
    Clicking the Thanks button is a great way to say... well THANKS

    As long as it's simply one option and they still keep the vertical slider available.

    Wife picked up the Epic. I still have my Pre. The Epic looks and feels awesome but the Android OS is not as good as webOS. I will wait patiently for the new Palm device! In the meantime, I'll play around with my wife's Epic, shoot the stunning 720p video on it and use the Fring app to video chat with the front facing camera. Come on Palm/HP!!

    I returned an Epic 4g today. I would have thought that the music player in a 1Ghz phone wouldn't skip so much. Android did not know how to handle enterprise wireless certs either. 4G was spotty at best, but I got around 2-5MB/sec down. Overall android felt very "fiddly" compared to webOS.

    The Epic is soo tempting. I really wasn't tempted until a couple of days ago when they turned on 4g in Daytona.. now I really want to try out that speed. The good thing is that I can't upgrade until november so HPalm has a couple of months to push something out.

    I won't lie though, if palms phone for sprint isn't 4g I might have a hard time deciding between it and the epic.

    I have an Evo with full service 4G in my apartment/surrounding areas.

    Whats funny is its faster than my wifi in my apartment. Forgive the lack of a screen capture, this was before i rooted:



    4G:


    With that said, the Epic is a very nice phone (i think the best of the galaxy line personally), but i hate landscape sliders so the slight added bulk was not enough for me to go over the Evo. (note, i don't really play games on my phone too often so the gaming performance wasn't a requirement for me).

    Yeah, the only thing I miss about the Epic is how much faster things seemed to go. I was able to overlook the lack of widgets and other things for the faster CPU/dedicated GPU and AMOLED screen.... just not the lack of Mobile Hotspot and Calls simultaneously.

    I felt just like you when deciding to jump from palm to the epic. The 4g wasn't the deal breaker the fact that it seemed as though everyone around us were getting bigger better phones especially this one with the keyboard, I couldn't wait any longer. I brought the phone our right. No upgrade. Saving it for a future palm device that rivals this one.

    Four times I've walked into a Sprint store to swap out my Pre for an Epic, and four times I've left without a new phone. I now roam the city searching for new stores where they won't recognize my face. I'm desperate for some new hardware. Can someone please help me with this problem, I can't sleep at night and all I think about is a new WebOS phone. I got the smartphone jones bad, and Samsung just doesn't satisfy my craving . How can Palm/HP be so cruel? Arghhh
