Is it seriously time for the Rogue
to be replaced already? Not necessarily, because the rumored
Reality for Verizon is now official for a launch later this week -- and it lacks some of the older model's visual pop. To be specific, the landscape QWERTY slider features a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen LCD, a marked downgrade from the Rogue's 3.1-inch WVGA AMOLED, though the two basically go toe-to-toe with the camera (3.2 megapixels versus 3) and -- naturally -- both offer TouchWiz
user experiences. Look for the Reality to hit on the 22nd of the month for $79.99 on contract after rebate in your choice of "Piano Black" or "City Red" (we would've liked "Reality Red," but maybe that's why we're bloggers and not marketers).
