Get ready for an onslaught of announcements from CTIA in San Diego today. Although Samsung cancelled the "Nexus Prime, Samsung Unpluged Google event, Samsung announced two Android smartphones from AT&T the Samsung Captivate Glide and Samsung Double Time.
The Samsung Captivate Glide is geared for business with enterprise features and a keyboard.
The Samsung Captivate Glide runs Android 2.3, has a slide out QWERTY keyboard, 4" super AMOLED touchscreen, 8MP camera, front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, HDMI playback, encryption, VPN, MDM, and 1GHz dual-core processor. Other features should include, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microSD card. We've got a call out to Samsung to find out if it will come with an HDMI port which is very nice for business presentation. If we can't get hold of them today, we will check at the Samsung booth at CTIA tomorrow.
The processor is slower than the Samsung Galaxy S II with a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, however, the keyboard will be handy for business correspondence.
The Samsung Captivate Glide is a dead ringer for the Samsung Stratosphere from Verizon Wireless which is bit more rounded and has DLNA but not HDMI and sells for $149.99 after a mail-in rebate. No release date or price has been set yet. The Samsung Galaxy Capitivate Prime is part of the AT&T Android invasion today.
