Voyager Mobile Gets Off the Ground a Few Days Late
Voyager Mobile, which delayed its planned May 15 launch due to an attack on its web site, has gotten off the ground and is now offering wireless services. Voyager sells access to Sprint's EVDO 3G and WiMax 4G networks and is offering two service plans. The first plan costs $19 per month and includes unlimited talk and text. The second plan costs $39 per month and includes unlimited talk, text, and data. Both plans are pre-paid, but do not include local, state, and federal taxes. The company sells feature phones and Android smartphones ranging from $120 to $550 in price. Some include the Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy Epic 4G Touch, Motorola XPRT, and others. Voyager Mobile also offers two USB dongles, a mobile hotspot, and Android-based tablets from HTC and ZTE. The company has a web-based sales footprint in 18 states, and will eventually be available across the U.S. in the coming weeks. Voyager Mobile hopes its products will be available in various nationwide retail locations in the future.
