Some smartphone users can't do without a physical keypad, and don't like the way it eats into precious touchscreen real-estate. For those, LG dropped in the LG Enact, a 4-inch candybar with a physical keypad that slides out from the sides, giving you speedy typing with the screen landscaped. The Enact is on its way to Verizon, as @evleaks netted a press-shot.
Pictured above, the LG Enact features a 4-inch screen that can rotate even when scrolling through the home-screen, or app/widget menus. A full-fledged QWERTY keypad with independent number, arrow, and function keys slides out. The rest of its hardware feature-set isn't exactly stellar, but pretty practical.
Its 4-inch screen features WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution. You get a 5-megapixel primary shooter, with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing one. Under its hood is an unknown dual-core CPU. It runs a slightly customized version of Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean." The phone is ready for Verizon's LTE network. Pricing and availability are under the wraps, although Verizon should have the device up within this week.
