Although it was first scheduled for a later release, Samsung’s new touchscreen-endowed wonder, the Samsung Glyde, will be coming to Verizon in May. It will cost you $429 per unit if you want to get it byt itself, and $299 with a two-year contract.
The Samsung Glyde, also known as the Samsung U940, a touch-based user-interface which seems to be all the rage nowadays, and other than that it also offers a slide-out QWERTY keyboard as an option for input. Specs are mostly middle of the road, with a 2 megapixel main camera, secondary camera for video calls, 2.78-inch touchscreen display with VibeTonz technology (which gives it haptic feedback with each touch) and HSDPA connectivity capable of reaching up to 7.6 Mbps.
We still haven’t found any details about its operating system, but you can bet that it will be something similar (but not identical, of course) to Apple’s iPhone, HTC’s Touch, and other touch-based mobile devices.
You can check out your local Verizon retail stores for more info, and we’ll be reporting more about this as details become available.
