The inevitable has come to pass. In the US, AT&T’s big rival, Verizon Wireless, has introduced what is for all intents and purposes is a copy of the iPhone.
Via Telecm TV “Called “Voyager”, the 8GB LG phone sports a great big touch screen and is generally almost as svelte and sexy as an iPhone, although some say it lacks the sublime quality of industrial design that is the hallmark of Apple’s entire product line. Form and function do meet about halfway in Voyager, but it definitely has a case of pragmatic PC-itis.That being said, the new handset does have some features that may give potential iPhone buyers at least some pause for thought on their way the the AT&T and Apple stores. In addition to thet ouch screen, Voyager offers a fold-open QWERTY keypad and screen that many users complain is so conspicuously missing from the Apple phone.
Voyager is also way ahead of the mobile broadband game compared to the iPhone and its wimpy EDGE connectivity that limits its full “i” use to the occasional no-pay WiFi access point”… Slide Show and More Photos @ I4U News.

“Alltel Wireless scored a win today, being the first carrier in the US to offer Samsung’s “Wafer,” the 8.4-mm thick SCH-r510. The super-thin phone features XM radio, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and music playing capabilities. Pretty slick, if you ask me”…. <More>
The wafer is available now for a downright-reasonable price of $50 with contract”…
“The 3G phone uses a an microSD card for storage, with a 2-GB card getting you about 1,500 songs. Possibly notable is its ability to play music protected with Windows Media Digital Rights Management (WM DRM) as well as MP3, AAC and MP4 files. “Stereo” speakers are built right in, and you get some no doubt really crappy earphones in the package, so you’ll probably be more inclined to use a pair of Bluetooth headphones (which probably aren’t included, despite some photographic clues) since, hey, you can with this baby”….. <More>
“The boys at Sony Ericsson expanded their Walkman phone line up this morning with the W660i. Available in black or rose, the phone will have an optional speaker stand that clamps on to the bottom of the phone. A bundled 512MB Memory Stick Micro card will get you started with your music collection, as well as save those incriminating photos you’ll be able to take thanks to the phone’s 2-megapixel camera”…. <More>
“Even with the most expensive camera there’s a detail that always escapes and that’s called immersion. No matter how god a photo is, you’ll always know it’s just a picture, there’s not a feeling of being there, if you know what I mean. But things doesn’t have to be the same, and 3DWorld tries to prove that with the help of TL120-1, a digital camera meant to take 3D pictures”…. <More>
“This year’s American International Toy Fair featured a Creative Factor booth showcasing product design and development technologies for the toy industry. Designer Brett Klisch, who organized the booth, harnessed several of these technologies to create a 21st-century photo booth capable of capturing and printing 3-D busts rather than 2-D images. Reporter Alexander Gelfand got busted, and photographer Ryan Brenziner documented the process”…. <More>
“The presence of three LEDs on the outside makes this clamshell attractive. Each of these LEDs has a purpose, just like we had seen in case of the Z310. They indicate a New Message and incoming calls and voicemails. It has a 2.0 MP camera at its back for great quality images”…. <More>
“HDRI: In computer graphics and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allow a far greater dynamic range of exposures (i.e. a large difference between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to the deepest shadows”…. <Definition Via Wikipedia>

“This cool little printer that combines old-school Polaroid cameras with digital technology. It’s a tiny printer with Bluetooth that’s designed to connect to cellphones and digital cameras, allowing you to print out your pictures quickly, Polaroid-camera style, wherever you are. It’s inkless, so you’ll probably just need to buy special paper packs rather than ink cartridges”…. <More>
“With LG’s KE850 already riding high on the wave of touch screen based phone publicity generated by Apple’s iPhone rumours are now circulating that Google is also about to test the water.
Conveniently blurry/‘Leaked’ photos of the search giant’s first entry into the hardware world began to appear at the pints and footy end of last week. Apparently codenamed ‘Switch’ it is the offshoot of a partnership with Samsung and has a firm focus on communication rather than multimedia.
At the heart of the device is reported to be an enhanced version of Gtalk which will organise contacts and handle instant messaging. Gmail and Google Maps will – naturally – be fully integrated and a virtual keyboard will pop up to enable typing”….. <More>

“There aren’t any specs attached to the device yet, and based on how thin the picture makes it out to be, the on-board camera — if it even has one — can’t be all that powerful. It may not even have any internal memory whatsover, if the “tipsters” are to be believed, opting exclusively for web-based network storage, including applications that you “attach” to your account”…. <More>
“This imaging spotter has a 14x optical zoom, is capable of snapping 3MP pictures and also supports continuous video (relay, not record). At around $500, it might fill a void where consumers often have the choice between a cheap camera with a minuscule zoom or a DSL-R with an excellent zoom and image quality, but at a prohibitive price”…. <More>
