But it's the Voyager's exterior that holds the most changes. While the enV's exterior keypad and tiny external display were less than stellar, the Voyager's has an expansive touch screen. I gave the display a test run and was impressed with its vibrance and color resolution. The touch feedback felt a tad pokey, but that could be due to the sensitivity settings. I also fancied the rounded edges--it's not nearly as boxy as the enV--and the slick black color, though I didn't like that the rear-facing camera lens has no lens cover. But on the whole, this phone promises to be a design winner.
The Venus also has a large touch display, and I loved the design of the onscreen navigation controls. What's more, colors were bright and the graphics were sharp. Sliding up the display reveals a keypad in an attractive two-toned color. The keys were spacious and user-friendly, even if they are flush with the surface of the phone.
The Venus should be out November 7, while the Voyager is scheduled to be available one month later. We'll review both phones just as soon as we can get them, so stay tuned.
