    I heard on the radio that Verizon and Microsoft were working on a new touchscreen devise to be out next year? Is there any truth to this and what phone is it?

    By AMOL SHARMA and NICK WINGFIELDMicrosoft Corp. and Verizon Wireless are in talks to launch a touch-screen multimedia cellphone on the carrier's network early next year, in an ambitious effort to challenge Apple Inc.'s iPhone, according to people familiar with the matter.
    The discussions are a gambit by Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer to energize a mobile business that has lost buzz among consumers and software developers to Apple's iPhone and Google Inc.'s Android.
