A couple of weeks ago, I've reported here, that - according to the FCC - two different shapes of the HTC Voyager (better known as i-Mate Smartphone2/ Orange SPV E200) exists.
Also this "second" HTC Voyager is now know as Qtek 8060 and during CeBIT I had the chance to play with it a little bit and to make some detailed photos.

In general, it's the same device with the same features. It's nothing different inside but the difference is in the shape of the device which remind more on the HTC Canary (Orange SPV) than the HTC Tanager (i-Mate Smartphone/Orange SPV E100).
Therefore it doesn't have a joystick but a navigation pad as well as the side keys (for volume and the camera) comes closer to the Canary. However, the dial-pad is taken (more or less) from the Tanager which makes using it easier and not that painful.

While the version "B" is the same as the better known version "A" - feature-wise - I prefer the "A" version, available as Smartphone2 or Orange SPV E200. In my humble opinion, it looks nicer and also it's easier to use, thanks to the joystick (which was introduced for good reasons on mobile phones).

Nevertheless, it's expected to be released soon in different countries like France and Germany but it's questionable if it will become that huge success. But again, this opinion is pretty subjective since I know some people who prefer to use the Canary design.

As I said, the ROM is the one also available for the Qtek 8080 and I haven't seen a difference, therefore I expect to have the same 'problems' with the 8060.

But you are right, it's the one which is expected to be sold via Aldi - according to rumors in the web. However, I can't confirm this rumors because I don't have any information here.

For me, not the sales channel was important but the device itself because I was on the hunt since I found it on the FCC site.

Do you have an idea about the bug status ? Still the trouble with the battery life ? And is this the device that was rumored to be sold via ALDI ?
