Anyone notice that almost sweet scent that is on the Epic's keyboard?

    lol,

    Yep, I noticed it too! However, I bet some people have keyboards that smell like peanut butter...or McDonalds....or....

    Haha, but yes, you're right....


    Later,

    Matt!

    Why are you smelling the key board in the first place? OK so now you have me smelling my Epic. Yes that scent brought back memories. Back in the day when Western Electric made almost every telephone in the country there coiled phone cords when new had a very intoxicating scent to them that you could smell for days after the nice phone man would come make a free house call to repair your telephones for FREE. This is almost that same scent.

    That's what it is...You can smell it on the keyboard and on the back of the phone.
    Be interesting to see what happens in the next 12 months.

    It's really strong by the charging port. That's where I first noticed it.
