LG VX9600 Versa Leak

A leak surfacing at HowardForums on Friday has confirmed that LG is developing a sequel to its successful Voyager phone that would try to bridge the difference between pure touchscreen phones like the Dare or Apple's iPhone as well as the Voyager's original flip formula. The VX9600 Versa can operate as a clamshell with a full QWERTY keyboard and a small external display but detaches to work solely as a touchscreen phone; a cut-out in the back of the keyboard add-on lets the camera continue to work, while alternate add-ons could allow gamepads or other button controls.

Few other details are available, though screen caps of the phone have suggested a partly 3D interface that operates similarly to that of the Voyager. The Versa has already passed through the FCC in basic form this past fall and appears largely complete in the current shots, hinting at a launch on Verizon comparatively soon.
