It may not quite sport the visual appeal of HTC's Star Trek, but Verizon customers looking for a flip phone of the "smart" variety are feasting their eyes on the only game in town. The Pantech-sourced PN-820 holds its own on the spec sheet with 128MB of onboard storage, miniSD expansion, a 1.3 megapixel cam, color external display, Bluetooth, and that life-giving EV-DO radio. We could admittedly do without the stub antenna, but hey, at $150 on a two year contract, we're not sure we have room to complain.
