Samsung U940 Glyde Officially Glides Onto Verizon

Illustration for article titled 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.

Nice of illpacin0 to spam all Glyde threads with his drivel. I've had this phone since last friday (was able to preorder by calling VZW) and it's not that bad. The phone itself is very nice, the slider mechanism is top notch. Yes, the touchscreen is somewhat buggy (basically both things illpacin0 says that are bad are the same thing) sometimes it doesn't seem to register that you pressed the screen or the next button pushes instead. This is easily fixed with a firmware update and since this will be a popular phone, i'm sure it will be fixed shortly after it's released, since everyone will be having the same issue. The slide out QWERTY is very nice, good response, easy to type on. call quality is very good as well, my parents commented that they could hear me better than on my old phone (RAZR V3m) web browser is OK, but then again if you are buying a phone like this to do heavy web surfing you are stupid...get an iphone or wimmo smart phone. It is an HTML browser, it does render pages pretty well, it's pretty fast from what I've seen so far. I did a speed test on [DSLreports.com] and got an average speed of about 500k/s so the EVDO is pretty fast (it's not REV A) Overall, it's a nice phone, good competitor to the Voyager.
