QWERTY keyboard comes out of its shell with the LG Extravert

Verizon's prepaid phone, the LG Extravert, sports a sliding QWERTY keyboard for text-messaging enthusiasts.

The LG Extravert is a prepaid phone on the Verizon network that's perfect for text-messaging enthusiasts who don't want anything fancy.

That's because the phone, which retails online for $79.99 with a two-year contract, sports a four-row QWERTY keyboard complete with navigational arrows and shortcut keys.

If working the phone with a tactile keyboard isn't really your thing, the Extravert also has a 400x240-pixel-resolution, 2.8-inch WQVGA touch-screen display.

The phone's 2-megapixel camera can record 320x240-pixel video and zoom up to 2x. With Extravert's image editor, you can rotate, crop, add borders and stamps, sharpen, or brighten the images you take with the camera. Photos can be directly uploaded to social networking sites including Facebook and MySpace.

Other features include an Opera Web browser, a 3.5mm headphone jack for playing audio files, Bluetooth 3.0, a microSD memory slot with up to 32GB support, and a 950mAh battery that gives you up to 350 minutes of talk time.
