If the BlackBerry Tour isn’t your particular brand of vodka and the various other QWERTY handsets on Big Red’s menu don’t rub you the right way, the nation’s biggest carrier may have something right up your alley coming down the pipe. According to a post from last night, Howard Forums member StandardsDT decided to go all 007 on his friend and snap a few stealth pics of the unannounced Samsung Glyde 2 when the poor guy left the room for a moment. Our guess is his friend won’t be overly happy when he sees the pics strewn across the internet, but we’re plenty happy to ogle them regardless. Not much is known about Samsung’s upcoming Glyde 2 for the time being beyond the big bright touchscreen display (AMOLED we imagine), the side sliding four-row QWERTY and the familiar TouchWiz UI. StandardsDT believes the handset has an on-screen QWERTY keyboard and an accelerometer for orientation awareness as well, though it doesn’t work in all areas of the UI. Release date? Pricing? Full specs? Hopefully all will be revealed soon enough. Hit the jump for more shots.

Thanks, Jon Dohnson!
