Samsung Rogue and Intensity debut

Verizon on Tuesday added a pair of expected messaging phones that also include its first phone with an OLED display. The Rogue has a 3.1-inch, AMOLED touchscreen that produces better color than an LCD and pits the phone against AT&T's equally Samsung-made Impression for image quality. The Rogue also shares multiple basic features like Samsung's TouchWiz interface, the slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 3-megapixel camera. Besides switching to CDMA and EVDO 3G, though, Verizon's phone also new voice recognition that allows full commands and dictating text messages.

The Intensity is a much simpler messaging phone with a 2.1-inch non-touch LCD, a 1.3-megapixel camera and basic 1X RTT data.

Either phone will be relatively inexpensive for Verizon. The Rogue should sell for $100 when paired with a contract and either an immediate online discount or a mail-in rebate; the Intensity is available for free under the same terms. Both ship today and are joined by two new basic data plans that provide 25MB per month for $10 or 75MB per month for $20.
