New Verizon phones to compete with the iPhone

Verizon Wireless on Wednesday introduced three new handset models, including the LG Voyager, a touch-screen phone the company is positioning as a competitor to Apple's iPhone.Unlike the iPhone, the Voyager includes a traditional keypad, and offers a faster mobile Internet connection than does the iPhone on AT&T's network."We think it'll be the best phone ... this year. It will kill the iPhone," Verizon Wireless chief marketing officer Mike Lanman told Reuters.The Voyager also features a 2-megapixel camera and up to 8GB of memory.Verizon is expected to sell the Voyager for between $300 and $400 when it launches before the end of November.
