Vincent over at Slashgear has a large hands-on with the Samsung F700 sliding smartphone (see comparison). The phone itself had a really good keypad and has great tactile feedback, but Vincent thinks the OS was locked because Samsung didn't want people viewing the un-finished product just yet.
As for the finish, it's definitely glossy and sexy, but a huge fingerprint and face grease magnet. Head over to Slashgear to get a closer look.
