Samsung Rogue quietly enters Verizon stores, to be launched soon?
The Samsung Rogue is apparently making its way into Verizon stores in preparation for an upcoming launch. The device, the sequel to the much maligned Glyde, is equipped with a resistive, touchscreen display, 3MP camera with AF and video capture, a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard and support for EV-DO rev.A.

Those who have a memory that goes beyond  6 months might recall the problems that Big Red customers encountered with the Samsung Glyde. With a capacitive touchscreen and a side-sliding QWERTY, Verizon had high hopes for this model. However, problems with the touchscreen and connectivity issues with the switching equipment, led to the Glyde being pulled from many Verizon stores as we reported last November. Then, we informed you about a Glyde Refresh model that replaced the capacitive screen with a resistive display.

As soon as we hear about a launch date for the Rogue, we will pass it on to you. Pricing is also an unknown at this point. Hopefully for Verizon, Samsung and those who become Rogue owners, there will be no issues with this model and things will glide smoothly after launch.

None of the stores have them as of todays date. Unless there is a mass shipment of phones tonight, not happening. I work for Verizon and it is not showing up. The Samsung Rep has been around with it which means it can't be too much longer. And my DM made a call for me to get the phone as a demo which means it is on the way. I would say about a week or two.

seems funny to me because right now Verizons website is "temporarily unavailable" so im guessing they are updating their data base for the rogue,omnia2,and hopefully the chocolate touch.

i got to play with a samsung reps model about 3 months ago, it was workin perfect then. things they forgot to mention were that its one of those new OLED( sp) displays that sammy is putting in their touchscreens. it is darn pretty and way more responcive than the crappy glyde.

It's a AMOLED screen, which basically means it will be brighther and more colorful while using less energy to power it, which means longer batter life.

Out of all the phones to be leaked, we get a "feature"phone. Bah. Verizon is really disappointing with their line-up and complete ambivalence of its lacking. We could at least get "target" dates, but, no.

I have been to a couple of stores and they are saying they don't have the phones in stock or that they have never heard of it. Has anyone gotten a for sure answer about the phone coming to stores?
