Voyager2 VX11000 and enV3 VX9200 pose for a group photo

Voyager2 VX11000 and enV3 VX9200 pose for a group photo
Yesterday we brought you a few pictures of the enV3, but today there are new images showing the enV3 and Voyager2 VX11000 together. At this point, little is known about the devices, except that the enV3 VX9200 will have a 3MP fixed focus camera, LED flash, and 2.5mm headset jack, while the VX11000 will have a 3MP auto focus camera with Schneider Kreuznach lens (like the Dare), LED flash, and 3.5mm headset jack. The overall design of the VX11000 looks nearly identical to the original VX10000 Voyager, but we're hearing that both displays are now WVGA resolution. You can also expect the VX11000 to have a few extra software features, and hopefully the 3 shortcut screens from the Versa will be carried over. Too bad the VX11000 is sticking with the same clamshell design and not going to be a slider, as was rumored a few weeks ago.

*UPDATED*
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....

I'm sure they'll both sell but I say "eh" to BOTH as they are practically the same *YAWN*

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.

The ENV3 outer screen is bigger. I can't see that it would be as lame as it was.

goto the page on the EnV3 itself.. you will see that the screen is bigger on the front, when it's actually on. you can see that it is as tall as the original EnV's but much wider.

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?

Based in the information given, there is not much of an upgrade. Considering the new design, some of the new features, and the possible new software, we can predict that it's not going to be so great.

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.

Yeah because VERIZON makes these phones....they just slap a LG tag on their so they can pass the blame. Such a rocket scientist as yourself should not grace your presence on us infitile morons. BB Storm FTW

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.

Really? The env2 has been one of my most dependable selling phones, I personally own one and love it. Movies, music, and overall usability exceeded my expectations.

I know, right? ENV2 is a tough phone.

I agree... I am partial to the design, but the phone is a tank... -InfoMan 80

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.

When are these phones coming out?

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.

i was a a verizon store because i need a new phone cuz my env2 is pissing me off. my 3rd phone in less than a year and its had the same problem...the OK button stops working. he told me that if i like the env but just get annoyed with that problem then to wait because they have updated their system and the env3 is in it so he said it should be coming out very soon. im hoping hte voyager 2 comes out with it.

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.
