A better Boulder from Verizon?

A better Boulder from Verizon?
After a few months on the market, Verizon has released an update to the Casio G'zOne Boulder we reviewed in August. The most noticeable change is the addition of a front speaker, which works in conjunction with the back speaker, so that it is louder and easier to hear. No other updates are expected on the device, but it is available now from the Verizon site for $199 on a 2-year contract.

Hope this fixes the speakerphone issue the first bolder had.

trying this out this afternoon and I can honestly state that this increased the volume 200% compared to the last gen. Nice move, but it may be too late. And I hope VZW allows customers who have the original gen to trade it in for the one that works a lot better.

This phone has horrible call quality. I couldn't even recognize my own answering machine when I called it.

Thanks for using my picture. The new Boulder call quality is far better (ear piece and speaker).
