The Glyde hasn't been the most trouble-free unit to see duty on Verizon shelves; folks following the drama closely will recall that it got briefly yanked late last year from some stockpiles while a new firmware was fast-tracked to resolve connection issues in some parts of the country. Connection issues aside, though, Glyde owners have complained of wonky touchscreens from day one, and it seems like Samsung may have really taken the issue to heart, allegedly gutting its capacitive sensor and replacing it with a more traditional resistive one according to some recent buyers. Given the recent trend toward capacitive displays, that seems counterintuitive -- but hey, whatever works. Anyone out there noticing a difference with a brand spankin' new Glyde?
