Nokia Swivel Verizon Rumor

A new slip through one of BGR's more familiar sources on Sunday suggests Nokia is developing a unique messaging phone for Verizon. The unnamed handset would have a short, squat design which swivels out a QWERTY keyboard ordinarily hidden behind the display and directional pad. It would nonetheless be a feature phone with Symbian S40 rather than the smartphone-class Symbian S60.

Other features aren't known, though 3G over EVDO is a possibility as well as media playback and a built-in camera; a mockup (shown here) provides a rough view of the phone's basic appearance. Verizon will supposedly pick up the phone between July and August and is likely to set a relatively low price given the feature set.
