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.

And isn't the G1 considered a smartphone? This is just an LG Dare with a keyboard. And considering how popular the Dare is, throw a...
It's essentially a Dare with a real keyboard because people like me and others would shatter an onscreen keyboard from use.
I'm a huge fan of the G1/...
Another flavor of Dare!
Also full html? will it have java and flash? i don't think so which is a cons against these phones.
But I guess we'll wait and see to redeem my NE2 and hopefully that rule of having to pay for VCast like it or not like with the PDA/Smartphone doesn't come on effect any time soon.
