First image of Verizon Wireless Boulder in orange

Although orange is not the most serious color, it fits really well to the rugged design of this clamshell. As it will also be one of the first phones to offer VZW’s next generation Push to Talk (over EV-DO Rev.A), the Verizon Wireless Boulder will be attractive for the customers, looking at Sprint’s rugged iDEN (and QChat) phones.
Verizon Wireless Boulder Preliminary Specifications
I like the look of the phone but the Orange color is something to be desired. So far all of the Gzone phones I've seen have been pretty durable. The only thing I've notice is that some of the older grey Gzones had power issues. Other then that as long as you keep all the ports closed tight with the seals it should keep water out and your phone should be all good from there from anything else it might have.

The colours aren't really that important. I think the fact that the new PTT is going to be shot thru VZW's Rev A data network, that's awesome. I'm not sure how Nextel's PTT works, is it on their Rev A as well or no?

No Nextel's PTT is not on Rev A. It is still working on the old system because Sprint has not put anymore money into the old Nextel network but is suppose to be releasing QChat sometime in the near future which is suppose to be awesome.

I have a voyager and am a bit hard on phones, but I would totally go for the orange boulder if i could force myself away from a qwerty phone... wouldn't that be nice... a G'zONE with a full keyboard...

I have the Voyager but have a truck driver friend who has the G-Zone Type V and loves it has dropped it many times. I would love this phone if it had EVDO VCast support.

I have been fortunate enough to work for Verizon and sell all versions of this phone and am seriously impressed with them. I have convinced many of my friends to get them and they havent had one issue so far. I'll even throw there phone in a pitcher of water at the bar just for the pure shock factor from others that dont know it is water proof/resistant. This is not a biased opinion. It is based off of actual use and results. So far I have not been able to get my hands on another device that does the same or works better. BTW. I think a Yellow "CAT" version would be awesome! But thats just me. ;u)
