Pantech is preparing Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone for Verizon

It seems that Pantech, the second largest manufacturer in Korea really wants to get a piece of the US market share - we've already showed some of its low and mid-level models targeted to Verizon and Cingular (CDMA and GSM) and a high-end phone for Helio (MVNO that launched yesterday). Now the FCC pages reveal information on a Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone in clamshell design, which is manufactured by Pantech and is targeted to Verizon Wireless.

The PN-820 (PC-8200N) combines high-end functionality and stylish design, has 1.3-megapixel camera with flash, memory expansion via miniSD (I/O) cards. The device has also powerful connectivity features, including WI-FI (not sure) and Bluetooth. The FCC pages do not reveal information on its display, but we guess it is a QVGA 240x320, 65k color TFT one, and secondary unit is located on the front shell for caller ID functionality.

This is a great device. Similar to the old Samsun i600 but with windows 5.0 smartphone and EVDO tech. I hooked it up to my laptop and got great wireless internet!

I finally retired my faithful Samsung i600. Excellent upgrade, smaller, lighter and has Bluetooth, but am still trying to figure out how to use the voice commands via Bluetooth.
