Verizon launches the Samsung Rogue


After letting it float around in the rumorsphere for months on end, Verizon finally announced at the end of August that they would be launching the Samsung Rogue on September 8th. September 8th has come and, sure enough, so has the Samsung.

The Rogue isn’t quite a smartphone, but it still packs a good amount of heat for a $99 messaging phone. It’s got a 3.1″ touchscreen, with a 3.0 megapixel camera with flash and video recording. Stereo bluetooth support is there, and it’s all built-up on top of Samsung’s in-house TouchWiz OS. If nothing else, we’ve got a special place in our hearts for that big ol’ full QWERTY keyboard.
