Verizon Wireless will introduce an iPhone look-a-like called the LG Voyager just in time for the holiday shopping season, the AP reports. The LG Voyager will come with a large touch screen, camera, and extensive multimedia, Web browsing and e-mail capabilities. But unlike the iPhone, the Voyager folds open lengthwise to reveal what most people have griped is missing from Apple's popular phone, a QWERTY keyboard, along with a second, non-touch sensitive screen.

Verizon said the Voyager will connect to Verizon Wireless' latest data network, providing speeds much higher than the AT&T network the iPhone uses. And while the Voyager will also have direct access to Verizon Wireless' online music store, it will not come with a large built-in memory for songs and video. Instead it will offer a slot for memory cards up to 8 gigabytes. And its screens are not as large as the iPhone's.
