A couple of days back, several sites (like CoolSmarPhone.com) reported about a mysterious "new" Smartphone from HTC which was called Qtek 8060 and which is announced on French Dangaard's website to be available during January.

If you read the specifications it might reminds you pretty much on the specs of the HTC Voyager (available from PPCW.Net as PPCW.Net i-Mate Smartphone2) and well, don't makes me wonder anymore because both devices are HTC Voyagers! 8O

Today I had to check some stuff on the FCC site and also browsed the Voyager documentation there and see what I've found:

The HTC Voyager as we know if from Orange or PPCW.Net:

The HTC Voyager as we have seen it from Dangaard:

As you can see on the type label both devices are called NM8Voyager while the already known Smartphone is called "SV10A" and the new one is called "SV10B" and both devices were photographed and approved with the same FCC approval! So in fact it's not a new device but just a different shape of the known Voyager!

That's interesting since I haven't seen this kind of marketing before. Selling the same device in different shapes. ;-) I wonder if both will be priced the same or if the "old" Voyager with it's joystick is the "premium" Voyager while the "new" one becomes the "low-end" voyager because it includes a D-Pad only?
