Voyager2 VX11000 and enV3 VX9200 pose for a group photo

PhoneDog is reporting that the VX11000 will not be called the Voyager2, due to continuing licensing issues with Plantronics, so expect it to have a brand new name. He also says there will be a Dolby Audio mode, but the headset jack is 2.5mm, not 3.5mm. It also appears that VCast MobileTV (MediaFLO) has been removed.

Voyager Looks the same, but the screen looks a little bigger, maybe a full 3'' like the dare? it'll sell. I say "eh" to the env3 however....

The Voyager looks almost the same... I agree with PapaJay224 that the screen apears to be a little larger but I also feel as though the EnV2 has made the biggest change. It looks 20 times better than the original, even though very minor changes were made. Thank god they took off that chrome...

I agree. The Voyager2 should have been a slider. But this is ok. I think by the info provided it should be a good upgrade to the Voyager (1). The EnV3 NOT! Go back to the EnV and THAT is an upgrade. The lack of outer screen control is crazy. But who knows maybe they will bring it back. Time will tell.

I was all excited when i heard the voyager was gonna be a slider. Too bad. What was the point of either of these phones? Neither of them are that much of an improvement, or not enough for me to run out and buy one. Especially the env3.

Jesus you guys are hard on new phones. These units are not even out yet and you already feel the need to judge them by looks alone? How about you wait until launch and play with the two units side by side with their previous models and then make a post?

Way to be innovative Verizon. Take existing phones, tweak them slightly and then tell us it's a whole new phone. Verizon continues to have weak lineups in phones. Show us something new and worth while.

vzw, like all other carriers, chooses what to "purchase" from the manufactures... more often than not, with these types of phones, the manufacturers are told by the phone carriers what they are looking for, then the carriers are shown a selection of phones that matches their criteria, and they choose which phones will be sold to the general public... the other method is, manufactures present carriers with a certain phone, and the manufacture chooses to carry it or not...

Yeah, such a rocket scientist as YOURSELF should notice how rehnhart made no mention of verizon manufacturing the phones. Everyone knows the carrier has a choice in what is done to their lineup of phones. What a fucking moron you are if you think the carrier has no choice in what is done with their exclusive phones. The reason for verizon to "trickle" features into phones instead of releasing a 5 mp, mediaflo, capacitive touch, slider is so that the consumer always feels the need to get the next best phone. Instead of feeling as though "my phone is just as good as any other" for 3 years until considerably better tech comes out. Money, son. They don't want another 5mp phone that will cut into the omnia's sales due to the lost revenue on PDA data plans.

The Godfather huh? you think you are soo smart... You don't know a damn thing about how these phones are made... LG is made in Korea (read it on the phone itself), and they are made by LG!!! just because Verizon has say in the design doesnt mean that Verizon "makes" these phones... check yourself buddy... and your information. -InfoMan80

The Env3 looks better, and nice to see a larger front screen. Hopefully they won't be the big let down as with the Env2. More than half the Env2's our store sold came back defective within a couple of months, sometimes straight out of the box. VX11000... almost looks like it shrunk a bit in overall size. We'll see how well it performs once it's out and in everyone's hands.

The VX11000 is not going to be called the Voyager 2 as was announced in the story update. It is currently known at Verizon as the enV Touch. This is what the managers were told at their manager meeting today when they were shown the new devices for Q2. So as of now it looks like the enV Touch as its seems to be dubbed will be a Q2 phone. as will the enV 3. I saw it more of a Thanksgiving launch myself, but we will see.

These phones probably arn't coming out until july/august. I personally like this phone even though they didn't do much to it besides change the keyboard around, give it a better camera, UI, touchscreen, bigger touch screen, oh wait did I say they didn't do much? Anyway, this will be my next phone. :) Still hoping that it has an onscreen qwerty.

The env3 should've looked like the Nokia E90 Communicator. Plain and simple. This crap rite here simply should of been just the Env2. and the Voyager 2 should've been the Versa or unique slider like the G1.

The reason the enV Touch(Voyager 2) is not a slider is because the Prada 2 is a slider. The dare is a replica of the prada and I'm sure the Dare 2 will be a replica of the Prada 2. Therefore they are probably, saving the slider for the Dare 2

Yeah too bad Verizon doesn't team up with Sony Ericsson to have them make CDMA phones. Now there is a quality manufacturer. Every Sony Ericsson phone I've ever owned has been top-drawer quality and dependable ! Currently use an Xperia - WOW !!!

I've had the Voyager since it came out (granted I'm not on the original one...about 7 later only because keyboard lights keep burning out---text so much I just keep burning it out I guess) but I still love the phone and want to keep it, besides Verizon kept giving me a replacement phone, no questions asked.....but I would like to upgrade to the Voyager 2 when available. Was very happy to see that it will have the same design with the clamshell opening up to Qwerty keyboard. I was not going to get it if it came with the slider keyboard. Had a phone with the slider keyboard and do not like it or how it feels at all. Only thing I am very disappointed in is that it states it will not have Mobile TV. Why on earth would they get rid of that option? This is what sets this phone apart from all the others, that it has the Mobile TV. I am hoping this will change and it will come with the Mobile TV or I guess I will be keeping my Voyager and just getting a new Titanium when eligible in the summer. Since it's already changed from the original information of the keyboard design, I am hoping it will change again before launch with keeping it Mobile TV capable.
