The Genio Qwerty is our least favourite of the three handsets. It is designed as a "message-centric mobile for heavy texters" - it has a QWERTY keyboard below the screen – and features a 2.2-inch display with H.263, MPEG4 and WMV, 40MB of memory and FM radio.
Still a 2.5G handset with EDGE, the Qwerty sits in between the other models and has a frankly terrible keyboard. The keys are so small that you'd need to be under 10 to text on it properly. Perhaps that's the point, but we somehow doubt it.
All the handsets are extremely lightweight – the Qwerty weighs in at 94g for example, while the Pro is 135g and the Touch a mere 93g. As with the Genio Pro, there's a 3.5mm headphone jack.
As with all the models there's integrated social networking through a choice of up to 75 downloadable and included widgets. Widgets for the popular social networking sites are included as standard and status-updating of Twitter and Facebook can be performed right from your main home screen should you so desire.
We're just not sure about the Genio Qwerty - it's not got great functionality and is the somewhat awkward middle sibling. If you really need a keyboard, the Genio Pro is where it's at.
