Verizon Wireless Razzle

The Verizon Wireless Razzle is a messaging phone with a unique twisting lower half. It has music players on one side, and a QWERTY keyboard on the other.

Keyboard

We found the Verizon Wireless Razzle's keyboard to be quite roomy, and the keys are all raised above the surface, so it was easy to type.

Tilt

The Verizon Wireless Razzle's keyboard is tilted upward when it is facing the front. This leads to better ergonomics when texting and it also cradles the side of the face better when you're holding the phone to your ear.

Slim

When the music player is twisted to the front, the Razzle is straight and slim.

Playback

The music player controls on the Razzle consist of the typical rewind/previous track, play/pause, and fast forward/advance track keys. There's also a one-click music player shortcut plus two stereo speakers.

Back

When either the music controls or keyboard is on the back of the phone, they're rendered inactive and can't be used.
