I know, many of us have already ditched the traditional QWERTY keyboard on our handsets simply because the full touchscreen display is one user interface format that we have all gotten used to over the past five years – mainly with the inception of the iPhone, followed by the Android-powered platform, of course. Having said that, there are still certain quarters of people out there who would prefer the sureness of a QWERTY keyboard, and I suppose this group also text while they drive – something that is technically dangerous to do, illegal in some countries, but only achievable with a QWERTY keyboard, as a touchscreen display is useless in such a situation unless you use voice dictation. Enter the Samsung S425G for TracFone, where it features a 2.4” QVGA display, a 2-megapixel camera, video recording capability, Bluetooth connectivity, a speakerphone, and a microSD card slot – in addition to a QWERTY keyboard, of course.

It will run on a Java-based platform, and does offer social networking integration to play nice with Facebook, Twitter, as well as instant messaging apps to keep you up to date with what is going on in the lives of others.
