The VX8700 is stylish and usable.  Nice.

If you're looking to make a style statement, this one is up there with the Prada.

Where the VX8700 exceeds, though, is in usability and price. The RAZR-like pad makes dialing easy; the VCast videos (including snippets of each night's Letterman, Stewart and Leno) are crisp, clear - and with a tap on one button can be viewed horizontally.

The feel is perfect: solid, heavy enough but not overly so. It comes off class. Yeah, it's not THE most comfortable fit with your ear and it heats up a bit. But at $180 with a Verizon contract, I'll live with it. Happily.

If it's time for you to upgrade, make time to check this one out. You'll be down with it.
