LG's Versa Vaults Onto Verizon's Network
Today Verizon Wireless and LG announced the LG Versa - short for versatility. The Versa's stand-out feature is its combination of a 3-inch touch display with a QWERTY keyboard that can be attached or removed at will to suit the user's needs. The Versa has a customizable 3D user interface and provides haptic feedback when touched. Other features include an accelerometer, GPS, 2 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and video capture, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and visual voicemail. The Versa has a full HTML browser that supports RSS and multiple windows, and it supports microSD cards up to 16GB. The Versa will be available beginning March 1 for $200 after rebate with new agreement.
