Last year we saw the Samsung Captivate, a great device which was quite popular, and this year we have the Samsung Captivate Glide. Unlike the original Captivate, the Captivate Glide has a slide out keyboard -- as if you couldn't tell by the name of the device. QWERTY sliders are usually written off by many as they would rather have a thinner device with a large display and just type on that, but Samsung has done a great job with this device keeping it relatively thin and rather light while including the physical keyboard.
The Captivate Glider has a 4-inch display and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, and has a great feel in the hand. The camera has also been upgraded on the device, now including an 8MP shooter with a flash on the back, as well as your standard VGA camera on the front. As you would imagine the device does run Android 2.3.4 with TouchWiz over it, but the device is extremely responsive, and the interface is very user friendly. If you are looking for a mid to high range device with a physical QWERTY, the Samsung Captivate Slider is definitely something you will want to give a go. For a quick hands on and some more images be sure to hit the break!
