[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha senior associate editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the Verizon wireless PN 820. From the outside looks like a regular cell phone, but it's actually a windows mobile five smart phone. It's only one of a handful of clamshell design smart phones. Not the sexiest thing in the world, but it's functional so I actually like it. From the outside, there's a nice external display that shows all the basics, like caller ID and signal strength and battery life. Above it, you've got a 1.3 mega pixel camera as well as a flash and you also have a mini SD card slot on the side so you can store your photos on here as well as music and video. Inside there's a nice spacious internal display it's really bright and vibrant so text and images were really great on it. The keypad is really spacious too so, you shouldn't have too many misdials. Obviously, without the corded keyboard it's not the best for emails so it's only good for viewing emails and if you really have, an emergency and you need to respond. Probably best for Mobile professionals who just want to check there email on the go and not for the power user. The phone also has integrated Blue Tooth as well as EVDO support so you should enjoy some pretty fast web browsing on this phone. Call quality was also good so overall a very good device. The PN 820 is available through Verizon wireless now and it's about 150 dollars with a two year contract. I'm Bonnie Cha this has been the Verizon wireless PN 820. ^M00:01:24 [ Music ]
