Verizon to launch Pantech 820 PPC and LG VX9900 in September
According to a field report by Verizon, on September 4 they will launch the Pantech PN-820, a Windows Mobile 5-based smartphone with clamshell design. The device will combine highend functionality and stylish design but will have a major drawback as it lacks EV-DO, a feature that is especially useful with smartphones. On the same day Verizon are to launch the LG VX9900 - successor of the VX9800 (know as the V). The new hybrid device is said to have thinner, sleeker look and feel than its big brother. Both the PN-820 and the VX9900 were FCC approved in May.
