Verizon unveiled iPhone rival for the holidays

| 308 Comments

Voyager
Remember when I said it was all going to change? Well, here's just the beginning. Verizon Wireless unveiled its new fall lineup today for the holiday season, and included is a high-end handset named Voyager that will compete with the iPhone.

The Voyager does it all, with a full screen touchscreen on the exterior (a nod to the iPhone), but it opens up clamshell-style to reveal a second screen on the interior, complete with a monstrous QWERTY keyboard.

Voyager includes high-speed wireless access though, something the iPhone is lacking. And that high-speed access means the V CAST streaming video and music service is part of the package. It also includes a microSD slot - which now maxes out at 8Gb of storage (and growing) - so you can store your own MP3s.

"We think it'll be the best phone ... this year. It will kill the iPhone," Verizon Wireless Chief Marketing Officer Mike Lanman said in an interview with Reuters.

Remember, the iPhone was released just over 3-months ago, and already we're seeing other wireless carriers responding with their own sleek convergence phones. Imagine what will happen two-years from now?

Wow, "iPhone ripoff" or not, the Verizon Voyager is beautiful.

I don't know that this will be an iPhone killa, but I'm sure they'll sell quite a few. It would seem one advantage that the iPhone has over the Voyager is that the pricing seems to be more attractive when it comes to the service and data plans, since $60 a month for the iPhone gets you voice and data, whereas you're looking at somewhere more in the $80+ range monthly with Verizon.

I want Howard's show on a cell phone Ryan. Make it happen! The iPod is dead. Everything is moving to the cell phone.

Satellite radio's distribution strategy has to be

1. cars
2. internet
3. CELL PHONES

The cell networks/operators will soon start to follow up the nokia purchase with other content producers .........

If it had a real internet browser, rather than Vcast, it would be a sweet phone. Vcast is fast, but limited.

If it had a real internet browser, rather than Vcast.....

-- It Does.

Verizon certainly saw how popular the iphone was and realized how much it had to lose if it just sat back and didn't introduce something similar. I wonder how much the keyboard will help the Voyager. I wrote about this topic on my blog as well

http://www.growyourfunds.com/2007/10/verizon_introduces_new_lineup.html

I was never interested in the iPhone because of the at&t phone system. I am very satisfied with Verizon and have been for many years now.

I am really looking forward for this new phone from Verizon as it represents where handsets need to move toward to. It is time to stop being an iPod music player with a phone inside it mindset which is where we've been for the last couple of years now, i feel.

This has gotten my interest on high to check the Voyager out as soon as it shows up.

WebMatt01 - Thanks, I was not aware of that. I'll look into it...perhaps it's my next phone!

Yeah I posted before I realized it was engadget mobile. So fine, but they still could've slimmed it down by only having one . . . . and maybe made the screen fill more of the phone. The big bezel around the inner screen seems more pronounced and highlights how much real estate they wasted.

Now that I've read the review, the interface seems like a hokey stab at apple.
