The Motorola Rival is yet another messaging phone for Verizon Wireless.
Verizon just keeps releasing more messaging phones, and this time it's the Motorola Rival. It has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard plus a touch-sensitive dial pad on the front, which is similar in style to the LG Neon.
The Rival has plenty of messaging features, like one-touch access to text messages, a 2.0-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm headset jack, up to 8GB of removable memory via the microSD card slot, EV-DO with support for broadband services like V Cast Music with Rhapsody, GPS and VZ Navigator support, and more. The Motorola Rival will be available Wednesday for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year agreement.
