Blogging from the Samsung Rogue

6 11 2009

Just invested in a new Samsung Rogue from Verizon. Not officially a Smartphone, it’s dubbed an Advanced Multimedia Phone and requires a data package of 25MB per month at $9.99 if you don’t have a plan with unlimited data. Has a beautiful touchscreen with brilliant graphics, which wears down the battery fairly quickly. Slide-out QWERTY keyboard works with the main touchscreen turned sideways, unlike the LG enV3 (another texter’s favorite), which opens to a smaller second screen when the keyboard is in use. Buttons are a little closer together and therefore slightly harder to use than those on the enV3. (Note that the Rogue does not have the option of a virtual QWERTY on the touchscreen.) The touchscreen is very responsive (the reason a Verizon rep recommended the Rogue over the LG enV Touch…unless of course she’s making commission on the mandatory data package, which also seems likely.)

You’ll forgive the short review, I hope, on the grounds that it’s being typed on the Rogue’s keypad by someone with less-than-adequate hands for texting. Stay tuned for updates…
