Samsung Epix at ATT

AT&T today took the wraps from its spiritual successor to the BlackJack Line. The Samsung Epix has the familiar, fixed QWERTY keyboard design but uses an unusual optical mouse in place of a directional pad, giving it a trackpad-like control scheme for Windows Mobile 6.1 that can also fall back to the D-pad. The nearly 2.6-inch display is larger than on the BlackJack II and also supports touchscreen input of its own through either fingers or a stylus.

The smartphone is also as full-featured as other current devices with tri-band 3G, Wi-Fi and assisted GPS. A two-megapixel camera and microSDHC support up to at least 32GB are also built-in. On AT&T's network, it supports the provider's streaming music and video services.

AT&T says the Epix should be available immediately and sets pricing at $200 with both a two-year contract and a rebate.
