Samsung Galaxy S Glide for Rogers brings the keyboard love to the original handset
posted by John V. / Sep 23, 2011, 10:47 AM
Bound for Rogers up north, the Galaxy S Glide still sports all the juicy hardware that made the original handset stand out from the crowd – such as its 4” Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz processor, 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, front-facing camera, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Of course, its one distinguishable feature above all is its 4-row landscape style keyboard.
As it stands, this refreshed handset is going to be available “just in time for the holiday.” Of course, it’s might not impress US consumers, especially when the Samsung Epic 4G has been out for a year now, but it should prove to be a good revival nonetheless. Still, we're in the dark in regards to its actual release date and pricing.
Samsung will soon be the No.1 company in the world. In near future the whole world (I mean every person and every country) will depend on Samsung Electronics for every electronic good made. Samsung will overtake Apple, TSMC, Microsoft, Cisco,Google, etc. No one can beat samsung.Go Samsung! Go South Korea! The electronics supplier of the whole world! Even American military will have to buy electronic equipment from Samsung!

Anybody remember the original Samsung Glyde (Based on the F700)? It was such a bad and buggy phone on Verizon but I had to stick w/ it for 2 years before smartphones became more prevalent. I'm surprised they are willing to go back to that name, a well as the design of the keyboard because it for sore has left a bad taste in many users' mouths.

lol the Glyde was my first real cell phone I had before I had a basic crappy flip phone. Yea I got it when it first came out because of the hype and how "cool" it was suppose to be. The touch screen was completely unuseable, the keyboard was wayyyyy too cramped, and the phone was way too expensive. I love how back then, it was a 200 dollar device yet today you can get so much more for so much less.

Reminds me of that mystery phone that PA talked about prior to the announcement of the SGS2 lineup...

Based on the specs, I assume this is Rogers' version of the S2. Maybe this should have carried the Epic moniker! At least I have a good phone to fall back on if the Prime doesn't show it's face north of the border by February.
