Motorola Rival gets clearer ahead of Verizon launch

Chris Ziegler

Last time we saw the Rival in action, Mr. Blurrycam was in full effect, so we're happy to see that someone with steadier hands decided to step in and do the deed this time around. The QWERTY side slider -- which could very well launch tomorrow on Verizon -- is a simple text-centric device, which seems to be about the most popular mobile meme going right now. It's really not a bad looking phone (we particularly like the white), and if it's dirt cheap on contract, we'd wager they'll sell a few, especially considering the EV-DO support and decent 2 megapixel cam resolution.

Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL). Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage. Engadget remains editorially independent.
