Well, well. Looks like Verizon are hell bent on spoiling their customer with all kinds of cellphone choices. After announcing that the Motorola Q 9c will be made available on the network staring May 9, the North American carrier has announced that they will also be acquiring the rights to sell the Samsung Glyde SCH-U940 with their service. The CDMA 1x 800/1900mHz / EVDO slider looks every bit a fashion phone with its sleek horizontal QWERTY keypad and full-touchscreen credentials. The Glyde’s display measures 2.8-inch with a 240×440 pixel resolution and 262k TFT color screen. Unfortunately, the hot screen seems kinda wasted here since the carrier does not allow this phone access to mobile TV streaming. However, Verizon Wireless looks to compensate that with the onboard media player that can house a reasonable number of media files with its 8GB memory expandable via a microSD card. With a 2mp camera, Bluetooth and a full HTML browser, the Glyde is altogether not that bad an investment considering that Verizon are offering the phone for $249 with a 2-year contract after a $50 rebate.
