Samsung Epix SmartphoneAfter the latest i7110, Samsung and AT&T officially announced the SGH-i907 Epix, a QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen equipped smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system. The Epix is based on the SGH-i780 that is available in other parts of the world and features the same optical joystick controller that replaces the directional pad and is found on that device as well as on the i900 Omnia.

The Epix is available exlusively to AT&T customers in the US and allows users to choose between several ways to navigate its touchscreen, including the first-ever implementation of optical mouse technology on a phone sold in the US. The optical mouse is placed in the center of the device, between the right and left soft keys, and makes navigation a whole lot quicker and easier by simply sweeping a finger over it. Thus, if you want to make a selection, you just have to click one single time and you will get to the desired location within the phone’s menus. You can also switch the optical mouse to a four-way navigation key for more traditional navigation. If you, on the other hand, prefer to interact directly with the touchscreen, then you either use your finger to navigate or the Epix’s built-in stylus for pinpoint accuracy.

The Epix has a cool silver finish and follows a long line of robust and groundbreaking crossover smartphones from AT&T and Samsung Mobile. In addition, the Epix is a next generation, sleek, stylish and compact handset.

The Samsung SGH-i907 combines impressive features, such as: Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) to connect with home or campus networks or access more than 17,000 AT&T hot spots nationwide, including at thousands of participating Starbucks locations, a built-in aGPS, which can be used with AT&T Navigator, AT&T Navigator Global Edition and other GPS-based applications for personal and business use, AT&T Video Share, the first-ever service in the US that allows users to share live video over wireless devices while participating in a voice call, Global capabilities to help user to make or receive a phone call in more than 200 countries and check email, browse the Web or perform other data functions in more than 150 countries, including in more than 60 – such as Japan and South Korea – that have developed 3G networks, 2.0 megapixel camera with video capture capabilities and a slim, light form factor.

Moreover, users have the chance to access multiple email accounts with Microsoft Direct Push for corporate users and AT&T Xpress Mail, which includes access to most major personal email accounts. Developed with the business user in mind, “the Epix allows you to never miss a beat at the office, stay in touch with colleagues and family and enjoy entertainment”, said Bill Ogle, Chief Marketing Officer, Samsung Telecommunications America.
