Verizon Wireless unveiled its holiday lineup. Included in the new batch of phones is Verizon's flagship feature phone the LG VX10000 Voyager, dubbed the iPhone killer by some. It certainly makes some advances in the feature phone market with its touch screen user interface, but do the advances really compare to the iPhone?
Following close behind it is the LG VX8800 Venus, which incorporates a dual-screen fascia into a slider form factor. It has style and features to spare.
Rounding out the feature phones is the Samgsung Juke, a MP3-player focused phone that sacrifices functionality for style.
Last on the list is the BlackBerry Pearl 2, a high-speed version of RIM's style-conscious smartphone.
Take a look inside to see what they're all about.

like i said
I would be embarrassed to release such a nice phone with a crippled interface.
The iPhone was good for the competition. It inspires the manufacturers to cater to the fancies of the American public.
Now that the technology has advanced sufficiently, lets combine it all into one device and call it the veal chop.
1) AT&T cripples everything they releaseby putting it on that joke they call a network.
2) I'd really like to understand why you feel the UI has been "crippled"?

I went from an lg8300 to a treo 650 and it was a great move for me personally.
Im actually wondering if I can give up some of the treo features for the voyager.
What is the screen size?
What kind of outer screen size is on the outside of this one?
Bigger than the internal one on the vx9800 for instance?
Does the Voyager have an email client? If so what protocol.
Voyager looks cool I guess. Not for me though. Windows Mobile all the way!
