    Samsung Epic 4G

    I see that Samsung's Galaxy S will ship as the epic 4G to Sprint which means an LED flash, keyboard, and added size and weight. What do you think the chances that they'll ship the Vibrant (T-mobile's version) to Sprint in 4G form. I hate big thick phones and the Epic 4G looks to be one :(
