Samsung phones at Verizon
Two new handsets from Samsung have received an unofficial release date and pricing information at wireless provider Verizon, thanks to a leak today. The Samsung u960 Rogue and the u450 Intensity are seen by BGR as arriving at the same time on September 8th, with the Rogue due to replace the Glyde in Verizon's lineup. The device is a messaging slider that has a full QWERTY keypad and sports a touchscreen display. There is also a 3-megapixel camera, GPS and the expected 3G over EVDO.
The u405 Intensity will have a lower specification, but should include a QWERTY keypad, a 1.3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth.
The Rogue is expected to cost $100 after a $100 mail-in rebate, while the Intensity will cost $30 after a $50 mail-in rebate, provided customers sign up for a two-year contract at Verizon.
