LG was one of the first phone makers to jump on the messaging phone bandwagon, and they did so with the LG VX9800 way back in 2005. But the VX9800 was no ordinary messaging phone -- it featured a flip design, with not one but two screens. From the outside, the VX9800 just looked like a chubby candy bar, with a small display and a number keypad. But flip it open, and you'll find a 2.25-inch color display. Amusingly, we thought this screen was pretty good-looking for the time, and we found the keyboard user-friendly as well.
