So nobody wants to see their microUSB cable sticking straight up out of the phone. Looks like crap, especially in the car. Safe to say, you have options. USBfirewire makes angled microUSB cables that should fit anyone's bill. The two that will appeal most to us Epic user would be the left angle and the up angle. The left angle is great for those that want to rotate to the left into landsacape mode. In portrait mode the cable goes to the left from the jack so when you rotate counterclockwise it just hands straight down. So either way it's sitting nicely without a big protrusion. For those like me who don't care about landscape mode, the up angle is the way to go. You can run it up behind the holder, even use a stick on cable guide to keep it in place and just have it lay right above the phone. Very neat and discrete. They also seem to have options on the USB side for angles as well. Nice if you're using a 12v socket in a console of some sort and space is a premium. You can even go lower profile with a low profile usb adapter like this one.
