Samsung U940 is now the Glyde: Note the "y"


That Samsung U940 that Hickey mentioned the other day has changed its name. Once known as the Q-Ball, it’s now called the Glyde. The weird thing about that name is that “glide” is usually spelled with an “i” rather than a y, so someone at Samsung must have been doing DMT.

The Glyde is still on track for a late March release—Spring Break, you can find me in the Lower East Side complaining about things with Ha—and is still the same phone as we first described. That is, separate QWERTY keyboard (like nearly every phone these days) and 7 Train-friendly slide action.
