Samsung Rogue and Verizon Razzle to refresh Big Red's catalog
This article has been updated on July 30.

An internal document just fell in our hands, providing us with some top-secret Verizon Wireless information. Alright, it isn’t that big but still it gives a confirmation that we’ll see the replacement of the Glyde, the Samsung Rogue U960, hit the shelves on August 15 which is pretty close to what we have heard previously. In addition to the large touch-sensitive screen, the Rouge, which we thought will be called the “Rogue” *Update*: It turned out the name has been mistaken here, as other sources still refer to the phone as the Rogue U960. However, it will sport a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3MP camera, HTML browser, stereo Bluetooth and up to 16 GB of expandable memory.

The other interesting handset in the document is the Verizon Razzle, which is described as a replacement of the Blitz. According to the provided information, it will have a “swivel bottom” that will reveal a full QWERTY keyboard (unlike the Blitz, which is a slider). In addition, users will get a 1.3MP camera, stereo Bluetooth and a bundled 1GB memory card. The Razzle has an August 31 launch date assigned to it.

Thanks, sinfulta!

meh.... razzle will be a good low end multi-media device... good for teenagers and pre-teens. The samsung Rouge should be good... assuming it shares none of the problems the glyde had.

Hopefully both are a major upgrade from the former devices!

Anyone else get the email asking to send back any and all launch kits for these phones? Has anyone received one yet?I guess samsung slipped up and started shipping them a little too early....
