Verizon Wireless today unveiled their much anticipated line up of new phones set to be available for purchase this holiday season. With more of a focus on the multimedia experience Verizon is now positioning itself nicely to compete with the ?iPhones? of the world. Whether or not this move will attract new customers or simply hold on to the ones they currently have remains to be seen.
Leading the way are two new phones from LG the Voyager and Venus scheduled to be available before Thanksgiving. The Voyager features a large touch screen display along with a slide out keyboard to compliment its high speed internet access and full HTML web browser. The Venus sports dual front displays; like the Voyager display the lower touch screen features vibration feedback. Both phones share the same 2.0 megapixel camera an expandable memory card slot up to 8GB.
The Juke by Samsung scheduled for release on October 19 is not geared to the internet browsing / email checker every two minutes type, but rather a more practical and dare I say "fashion conscience" individual who wants to combine a dose of style with a dash of function. With its 180 degree swivel display and 2GB of internal memory the Juke carves itself a nice little niche in todays ever changing market.
Rounding out the new line up is the all too familiar Blackberry Pearl 8130. Not much has changed from the original Pearl announced over a year ago, but never the less Verizon customers will now be able to get there hands on the first Pearl that supports high speed internet access (EV-DO).
