Verizon finally gets serious about the competition and has some sweet phones coming this Christmas. The LG Voyager is the first phone offered by Verizon Wireless that–like the Apple iPhone–has a large external touch screen. Flip up the screen and there’s also a full QWERTY keypad underneath. The LG Voyager, which is exclusive to Verizon Wireless, is at the high end of Verizon’s new lineup. It comes with many features including an HTML browser, access to VCast Music and Verizon’s live mobile TV service offered over Qualcomm’s MediaFlo network called VCast Mobile TV.

The device can play a variety of music formats including Windows Media Audio, MP3 and AAC files. And it operates over Verizon’s 3G wireless broadband network, which means fast music downloading and mobile Web surfing. It also supports Verizon’s VZ Navigator service for turn-by-turn directions. Some other features include a speaker phone, picture, text, video and instant-messaging support, Bluetooth stereo for headsets and speakers, built-in stereo speakers, a 2-megapixel camera, and an expandable micro SD memory slot that supports up to 8GB worth of data. This phone looks hot and is due to hit the shelves sometime in the next few weeks. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, we hope to get a review unit from LG in the next few weeks.
