Samsung U940 Glyde Officially Glides Onto Verizon

After months of unofficial teasing (and well over a year of hanging out overseas) Samsung's U940 Glyde is finally official for Verizon. Besides going all CDMA/EV-DO, the former F700 touchscreener with a QWERTY keyboard packs GPS, a full HTML browser, a gimped 2MP camera, VCAST and all the usual stuff like Bluetooth and microSD support. Oddly, no VCAST TV. If this year old, no-longer-a-fresh pup phone still excites you, it's $249 w/ a two-year contract and $50 rebate. Check out another picture (with keyboard stashed away) plus full spec sheet after the jump.
