Nokla E97 blends LG Versa and concept phone for awesome knockoff

Resembling the offspring of a Samsung Omnia, the Nokia E97 concept from back in April and Verizon's LG Versa, this glorious Chinese knock-off is the Nokla E97.  A touchscreen handset section with a 2.2-inch display, camera and Bluetooth can be hooked up to a folding QWERTY keyboard section for messaging.

There's also dual SIM card slots, handwriting recognition, an FM radio and an MP3 player.  It seems a shame that the whole phone-section isn't taken up by a touchscreen, as 2.2-inches is on the pokey side, but we guess budget concerns held it back.

We doubt it has 3G connectivity, either, but that doesn't stop it being a great design.  Best of all, the Nokla E97 is available right now – if you're willing to fly to China to pick one up – for just 800 yuan ($117).
