Samsung Glyde U940 and Blackberry Curve 8330 releasing on May 9th
After long wait, both the Samsung Glyde U940 and Blackberry Curve 8330 will be released via the Verizon Wireless site starting on May 9th. However, some customers have been able to call and order the devices since May 1st.

The Glyde is Samsung's competition to the LG Voyager. It features a single 2.8" capacitive sensitive WQVGA display, slide out QWERTY keypad, HTML browser, 2MP camera with flash, Bluetooth, MP3 music player, stereo speakers, and supports microSDHC cards up to 8GB in size. Pricing will be $249, after a $50 rebate with 2-year contract.

The Blackberry Curve has a larger QWERTY keypad than the Pearl, but lacks the GSM roaming capabilities of the 8830. It features a 2.5" QVGA display with LED backlight, full HTML browser and E-Mail capabilities, 2MP camera with flash, Bluetooth, VZ Navigator, and supports microSDHC cards up to 8GB in size. Unfortunately, data only supports EVDO Rev 0 and is not upgradeable to the faster Rev A. Pricing will be $269, after a $50 rebate with 2-year contract. An additional $100 discount will be applied for those who sign up for a 2-year data plan.

Both devices are currently shown on Verizon's Testman site, which usually lists phones a few days before their official release.

*UPDATE 1* The Curve is now listed for sale on the primary Verizon site.

*UPDATE 2* Accessories for the Glyde are now listed for sale.
