The upcoming LG VX9600 Versa will ship with a modular physical QWERTY keyboard – yes, we all know this. The presence of a “soft” keyboard however, has been questioned by many. Thankfully, a newly leaked image and information posted on Howard Forums will serve to put that debate to rest. According to HoFo user Snap315, the Versa will feature an on-screen keyboard that will be present in the browser, notepad, for texting and other applications much like the Dare. The on-screen keyboard appears to be an improvement over the Dare’s keyboard though, and features directional arrows, dedicated “.com”, “@”, comma and period buttons as well as colored keys to indicate non-letter keys like the “Clear”, “Done” and “Shift” buttons. From the looks of things, Versa keyboard will also retain the “pop-up” letters (while typing) that were present on the Dare and made popular by the iPhone. So there you have it folks – with the Versa sporting both an improved on-screen keyboard and a detachable physical QWERTY keyboard, it looks like you can have your cake and eat it, too.
