Today Verizon Wireless and Samsung introduced the Reality, a new touch phone that also has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for messaging. The Reality has a 3-inch display and runs Samsung's TouchWiz user interface, which lets users place widgets on the home screen. Verizon is pitching the Reality as a social networking phone. One of the widgets in TouchWiz is called 'Communities', which lets users access their social networks to update their status as well as upload pictures and videos. Stand-out features include a full HTML web browser, a 3.2 megapixel camera with video capture, and support for Exchange email. The Reality also has Bluetooth, support for microSD cards up to 16GB, and the full suite of Verizon's V CAST services.
