U940 Glyde coming to Verizon Wireless by way of Samsung - surprisingly doesn't have the Croix UI

Supposedly this phone is the CDMA version of the Croix, but I swear the UI look almost completely different. The Phone itself looks more or less the same, but the UI has definitely changed.

Now, you might be thinking the new UI is far uglier, and you are pretty much right, but the way I hear it, the old UI didn't exactly work. I'd much rather have a WinMo type of ugly UI that worked than an iPhone type of attractive UI that didn't.

There is a full HTML browser included as well, so you aren't stuck with WAP, which is a big plus. I am curious how impressive of a device this will be after CTIA though?
