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.
Here's an in-depth look at the new LG Versa, which has a touch screen and detachable QWERTY keyboard. See where it excels and where it falls a bit short.

FitBit this week released its Versa smartwatch and said new features for the wearable will arrive as soon as next month. A software update to be made available in May will bring quick replies to people who pair their Versa with an Android device.
How long before it takes for customers to pile back into the stores because they lost their detachable keyboard? 😕
I see you have teenage daughters too!

That and a Nokia E90 copy.

Did I miss something? Since when did the G1 come with a removable keyboard?
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.
Seriously - who cares?
What's with all these cheesy teenager phones being released these days anyway?
Just because a PDA works for you does not mean the rest of the world needs to configure to your needs. Not everyone wants or needs a PDA phone.
