It might not be the biggest nab of all time for Verizon, but a phone's a phone, and in this case, a phone is Pantech's new PN-315. It's got all the trimmings of a low-frills clamshell, including hip T9 text input and a VGA camera. There is, helpfully, an external display, but that's about all this phone has to boast about. Luckily it should be cheap, but no word on when it will be out.
