The FCC today approved a new Windows Mobile Smartphone for Verizon. The Pantech PN820 or PC-8200N is a clamshell style phone with dual color displays and a traditional numeric keypad. It features a 1.3 Megapixel camera with flash, Mini-SD card slot and Bluetooth. This model will also be Pantech's first high-end model for Verizon, as to date the carrier has only sold Pantech's entry level models. Current Pantech models on Verizon use PN- model numbers, however the second PC- model number appeared in the user manual and FCC filings. It is not clear which the phone will launch with.

This phone looks like what I want - a smartphone in a small package.

Guesstimate would be 4-6 months.

It's a cool unit but a lot larger and heavier than what I'm used to and because I'm more of a data reciever than sender the QWERTY keyboard that adds some of the bulk isn't a necessity. In this Pantech, Verizon is introducing a small clamshell that retains all of what I like about the 6700 while sacrficing those features that I also like, but do not need (QWERTY, large scren) for those that I like even more (clamshell, smaller form factor).

It's obviously not for the power user as it's a phone first and couldn't really be classified as a PDA, but this phone should find a niche with those who want some of the...

This new clamshell I hope to see, it does have a haunting resemblance to the dropped Samsung i-645 which we all waited for a year. Only to be disappointed...

does anyone but me think this design looks interestingly similar to the moto v600/v620/v635? [more like the v620, but with the 635's screen]...
