Verizon Razzle starts twisting on October 6

Chris Ziegler

Call it a cool idea, call it ridiculous, call it a one-off novelty -- whatever the case, Verizon's unique Razzle will be hitting stores next week. The PCD-sourced handset is Verizon's branded version of the TXT8030 and features a totally unique twisting bottom half with stereo speakers and music controls on one side and a full QWERTY keyboard on the other. This is a truly low-end handset on account of its 1.3 megapixel camera and forgettable 2.2-inch display, but on the plus side, it's got microSD expansion and GPS -- and there's the nice little bit about the price, too, which comes in at $69.99 on contract. It'll be available to order from Verizon's web store starting the 6th, while brick-and-mortar locations pick it up "later this month."

Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL). Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage. Engadget remains editorially independent.
