Official Samsung Rogue U960 Specifications
As we creep along to the (new) rumored release date of September 8th, we did receive an email copy of Verizon's InfoManager system with all the phone's specifications shown in detail. The Samsung Rogue U960 will be the first Verizon device with 3.1" diagonal 480x800 pixel resolution AMOLED resistive touchscreen display with 262K color support. Other features include a 3MP autofocus camera with flash, 4-row sliding QWERTY keyboard, advanced on-screen widgets, 1000 entry phonebook, Bluetooth, HTML browser, EVDO Rev A, 3.5mm headset jack, 16GB microSDHC support, and is capable of VCast Music & Video, Visual Voice Mail, and VZ Navigator. Dimensions are listed as 4.29"H x 2.17"W x 0.65"D and with a weight of 4.94oz (including battery). Talk time is 4.7 hours.

Based upon this, the Samsung Rogue will offer solid features and will be good competition to the LG enV Touch. Only time will tell as to which device will be the better of the two.

Thanks to a friend for the info!

*UPDATE* The September 8th release date and price has been confirmed by EngadgetMobile. Pricing will be $99.99 after $100 rebate with 2-year contract, $169.99 after $100 rebate with 1-year contract, and $419.99 full retail. There is also some on-line buzz over some wording that is used on the spec sheet "Data Package or Nationwide Premium or Connect Plan required for Enhanced Multimedia Phones." This means that if you don't activate the Rogue on a Connect or Premium plan (which includes unlimited data), that you'll have to buy a new type of data plan.
