PN-820 does not rely on the slow OMAP 850, running at 195 like a lot of the Smartphones, but on Intel Xscale PXA270 running at 312 MHz. The speed increase is very significant and during our testing we did not notice any delays in the phone response which is lightning fast!

During conversation it is also up-to-standard – the other side can hear you very well, with sufficient sound volume and clearly, without any noise at that. The sound of the voice is realistic and with a rich key. You hear a bit more low frequency than in reality, but it is clear and distinct – sound volume is slightly average which makes the phone perfectly usable even in very noisy environments.


PN-820 is a great addition to Verizon’s line. Currently it is the only device in the carrier’s line to offers its users the convenient clamshell form-factor along with the extended functionality of Windows Mobile for Smartphones. It is just the perfect choice for consumers who do not need full QWERTY keyboard like the one on Motorola Q, nor the touch-sensitive display and Pocket PC functionality (and increased size and weight) of the i830 or the XV6700.
