[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor at CNET.com and this is the Verizon Wireless PN210, otherwise known as the Pantek 210, but we brand it by Verizon Wireless. It is a basic, lightweight handset by Verizon. Not too many features, not too many design landmarks here, but pretty compact and basic and does what a phone should do, which is to make calls. There is no external screen, although you have this interesting black and white design. On the right spine is the volume rocker and on the top here is the extendable antenna. On the top is the headset jack. Open the phone up and you see a pretty small lackluster screen, but on a basic handset it doesn't really matter too much. The keypad is really nice and easy to press, very tactile. The navigation keys can be configured to any user function you want. As far as features go, as I said it's pretty basic. You get text messaging, you get your contacts, your calendar, speakerphone, voice dialing. As far as sound quality goes, it's really good. Probably the best thing about this basic handset is it's free with a two year contract with Verizon Wireless. So all in all, pretty compact, no frills handset that has great sound quality. My name's Nicole Lee, this has been the Verizon Wireless PN210. ^M00:01:22 [ Music ]
