    I'm drooling over the horse power of this phone, but this will be my first slide out keyboard phone and I'm worried about thickness and weight. I know it's early, but if you know of a video or picture where I can kind of get an idea of the thickness of this beast. Thanks!

    Check the gallery over at Engadget of the Epic 4G. It has 60 pics and it compares the size of this phone to the Evo and some Blackberry device.

    Thanks everyone! Those engadget pics really did the trick. I watched both videos as well ; )

    I have the Samsung Exclaim currently and this looks just as thick.

    Well, that's because the EVO is so damn tapered. The full thickness only exists about halfway into the middle of the phone. I'm not sure, but this may make it feel a tad bit thinner than it really is when it's in your pocket. But, it really is about as thick as the Epic. About a 20th of an inch thinner at the thickest points.

    You're right. I can handle a .39" phone, but I would not want a gigantic .5" phone in my pocket. No way, no how, f**k that.

    Seriously... why are people hung up on the thickness of a phone? It's getting to the point now where they are all pretty much the same. Everyone was fine with the larger phones 5-10 years ago, and now every phone is smaller than that, yet people still complain about thickness? lol - I just don't get it.

    Yeah, and back then everyone had a little belt holster thing that they put their phone in.

    Another way to think about this phone is that it's almost exactly as thick as the first Motorola Droid. I've played with that in stores and it's always seemed plenty thin to me.
