LG has 'modular' VX9600 Versa in the works
Smartphone buyers have so many choices – do you want a touchscreen? A QWERTY keyboard? External media buttons? 5-megapixel camera? 3.5mm headphone jack? In many cases, the features you need dictate the phone you’re getting, before usability, software and design even come into it.
