    The Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4g Touch....why the long name on this phone? Sounds like a hybrid of two phones in one. Do they like making things confusing??

    I just call it the Epic Touch... but I agree... that is a ridiculously long name.

    In a word, marketing.

    Rumor has it that "Within" was specifically mentioned in a rumored lawsuit by a very short-sighted company jealously guarding their market share.

    The rest, I reckon, combines the name recognition of the Galaxy SII (good marketing) with the name recognition of the Epic (not so good marketing). I suppose the marketing dweebs wanted to carry on the Epic name, for whatever reason. I looked at the Epic before buying my Photon, and dismissed it. My son has the Epic Touch, and I'm a bit jealous. I'm old, and I can almost use the phone without my glasses. That screen is humongous. ...though the whites look a bit dingy next to my Photon. (as I look for reasons to bag on it to make myself feel better).
