Pantech PN-820 Review
Windows based smartphones are gaining more and more momentum each day. AT&T and Verizon each carry two different Windows Mobile for Smartphones devices – one with full QWERTY keyboard and one flip. Verizon’s line of WM devices also includes four WM for Pocket PCs. The main between them and WM for Smartphones is the lack of touch screen support in the latter.

The Pantech PN-820 is slightly bulky flip phone with stub expandable antenna and dual-color displays. Its rival in the Verizon’s line is the Motorola Q. Even though both devices are WM for Smartphones based, their target audience is very different. The Q is mainly a messaging device, wider and longer compared to the PN-820, with full QWERTY keyboard. The PN-820 looks and feel more like a regular clamshell device, rather then like a Smartphone and here lies the main different with the Q. The Pantech is suitable for people who do occasional messaging and do not require a full keyboard, but want to take advantage of the feature Windows Mobile OS offers:
-    Easy synchronization with Microsoft Outlook – contacts, notes, tasks, calendar
-    Large software base
-    Easy work with Microsoft office documents
