Samsung Captivate Glide, DoubleTime hit AT&T with QWERTY

Samsung Captivate Glide and DoubleTime arrive

As part of a full-scale Android push at CTIA, AT&T on Tuesday put out two Samsung QWERTY phones packing Android. The often rumored Captivate Glide has arrived earlier than some had thought and promises to be relatively high end for its class: while the four-inch Super AMOLED, isn't new, the slider is the only Samsung phone with a dual-core Tegra 2 in the US and can shoot 1080p video. It similarly carries 21Mbps HSPA+ Internet download speeds and has eight-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras.

The Android 2.3 plus TouchWiz phone has a pro focus with boosted Exchange support, SD card encryption, VPN, and remote device controls for IT admins.

A more unique take, the DoubleTime, brings the two-sided clamshell concept from LG's legendary enV phones both to Samsung and to Android. Both the outside and inside have a 3.2-inch, 320x480 touchscreen, while the inside also includes a full keyboard. With a 600MHz processor and an older Android 2.2 install, the design makes it strictly entry level, although it has a 3.2-megapixel camera.

Neither the Captivate Glide nor the DoubleTime has a price or ship date, although they should both be available in the fall.
