Verizon Launch: Samsung Glyde

In April we at UV reported on the Samsung Glyde and its scheduled release for May, a sooner date than was originally planned.

Now it is official, Verizon has launched the Samsung Glyde. The Glyde was certainly not the best kept secret in LG history, but it is exciting to finally get all the concrete news on this trendy new device.

The Glyde offers mobile users a list of respectable features, namely a full QWERTY keyboard that glides open, a terrific feature that inspired the name.

The original name was the Samsung U940, and we have to say the new replacement title is much better.
