Two new messenging phones have been announced for Verizon Wireless from Samsung, with the launch of the Rogue and the Intensity.

We're not overwhelmed with data on the handsets but then neither look particularly overwhelming with the most exciting thing to report the higher-end Rogue's 3.1-inch OLED touchscreen.

It also offers a horizontal slide-out, four-row QWERTY keyboard while feature-wise there's threaded messaging and one-touch access to popular social networking widgets, such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube and Photobucket.

The Samsung Intensity offers IM, text, picture and voice messaging with threaded messaging feature, mobile Email and the mobile web browser.
