>> Hi I'm Kent German, Senior Editor here at cnet.com. Today we're going to take a First Look at the LG Voyager; this is also called the VX10000. This is one of Verizon's most anticipated phones of the year; a lot of hype coming with this phone but actually lives up to a lot of the expectations we've had for it. It is the update to the VX-9800 and the last year's envy but it's a huge improvement over those phones in a couple ways. Instead of that really small external display we found on the NV and the VX-9800 we have actually a full-touch screen here on this phone. There are some controls down here; there's a menu control for controls activating the phone's keyboard. If you open the messaging function you can type a message on this display, but you have to use a regular 9-digit keypad; when you're actually using the web browser to type in a Euro you do get the full keyboard so I just found it a little inconsistent. Here on the bottom there is an antenna you can extend for watching a TV broadcast. On the back of the phone there's a camera. The LG on this phone did take away the lens cover which isn't a huge deal, but they also took away the flash as well; don't really understand that move. Open up just like that; these controls are difficult to access unless the phone's completely open but an improvement over the NV. Actually the phone does rest evenly on a surface which we really like. Inside you have a 2.8 inch display as well, really nice, takes up the whole thing almost; it really takes full advantage of that size, just as colorful, just as great resolution on the outside, keypad buttons are a tad bit larger. I have to say this is one of the most spacious, most easiest to use keypads I've seed in a cell phone. I really like it an awful lot. This is a really high-powered phone in a great design. I'm Kent German and this is the LG Voyager-VX10000.
