Today Samsung announced the SCH-u940 Glyde, a new sideways slider for Verizon Wireless that has a touch screen user interface on the front. The Glyde is a CDMA version of the F700. Its UI is based on Samsung's Croix interface, but has been heavily modified for Verizon. It features haptics feedback and measures 240 x 440 pixels. The Glyde also slides open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging. Other features include a 2 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, a microSD slot for storing media (supports up to 8GB), and stereo Bluetooth. The Glyde has EVDO data, a full HTML browser, and supports Verizon's Get It Now and V Cast services. The Glyde will cost $250 after rebates with a new two-year agreement.

Actually, I was impressed with how much they didn't change. Is is modified for Verizon, but I think they managed to integrate Verizon's required menus quite well, without "ruining" or "crippling" Croix at all.

For example, there's the "Veriz...

Not what I expected, Any questions?

This phone is nice, but it is not what I expected. There are too many flaws from touch screen, to browser viewing to speaker phone, etc. Will have a decent review posted by end of day.

Have used phone for 3-4 days so if you have any questions, let me know.
How is the keyboard It seems a little crowded?

but I wonder when Samsung is going to start tacking on that 5 mp camera to feature rich handsets like this. Would've put it over the top, imo.
