Verizon Releases First Windows Mobile 5 Clamshell

Available today, the Pantech PN-820 is the first clamshell that runs Windows Mobile 5 on Verizon's EV-DO network. For all intents and purposes, the PN-820 is a feature phone and comes with what has become the standard set of features, including a 1.3 megapixel camera, speakerphone, dual LCD displays, miniSD slot and Bluetooth. The Windows Mobile 5.0 software does set it apart from the norm, though. It comes with Microsoft Windows Media Player 10 and Internet Explorer Mobile on board, and the calendar, contacts and email applications will sync to a PC. The phone also supports Verizon's BroadbandAccess Connect, allowing users to use the phone as a modem through which they can connect their PCs to the Internet over Verizon's 3G data network.
A sign of good things to come?
Not the first. What about the Samsung I600
It was a clamshell.
It sucked for a number of reasons but it was out about 2 years ago.
That's the first thing that came to mind when I read the post on this Pantech phone. Although it had Windows, I don't think it was Windows version 5 though
*The VZW PN-820 supports the Wireless Headset, Handsfree, Stereo (A2DP) Bluetooth Profiles. It does not support all Bluetooth Object Transfer (OBEX) Profiles. See Bluetooth for details.
I know this is like beating a dead horse, but why the hell would they block bluetooth on a windows mobile phone, but allow some file transfer profile sfor say the 8600-9900. I just don't understand them sometimes
That's a lot of features...
Windows Mobile 5. Nice.
Its a shocker coming from you, undrgrnd, since you have been saying nothing but how great Sprint EV-DO all over this board.
