Review: LG Versa
Due to the Jekyll and Hyde nature of the Versa, I'd weigh its purchase carefully. It works just fine without the keyboard, and in fact, is probably a better phone without the added bulk of the full QWERTY. However, if you're a messaging maniac and crave a real keyboard from time to time, the Versa provides some flexibility.
Sending SMS, MMS and IMs was easy with the Versa, but the lack of an on-board email client (that you don't have to pay for) is a bit of a bummer.
Browsing was fast and intuitive, and the HTML web sites liked really good. The camera took pretty good pictures and had robust software for controlling image capture. Music playback was good, though the lack of a 3.5mm headset jack may bother some (like me). The menu system is more mature than that of the Dare, and is easier to figure out after spending a few moments with the phone.

In my book, it has as many cons as pros, but if you're a fan of LG touch phones, the Versa may provide the versatility you're looking for.
