According to the Mobilesyrup website, the new addition to the Galaxy family called the Samsung Galaxy S Glide would be in Canada before the market holidays. It is similar to the Samsung S Galaxy II, but the biggest difference is the Glide features an impressive 4 row slide-out QWERTY keyboard with big and well spaced keys, as well as dedicated home, menu, back, and search buttons on the outer edges.
Samsung already has Galaxy models with a physical keyboard, but felt it was just a Pro version of a particular model. The Samsung S Galaxy II Glide is the first stand-alone model with a physical keyboard.
The Samsung S Galaxy II Glide has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.2MP front-facing camera, and it’s powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
No pricing was given by Samsung or Rogers but it should be available on the Canadian carrier just in time for the Holidays.
