Since we caught wind of the VX8800 and VX10000 superphones coming down Verizon's pike, pretty much anything that starts with "VX" has been getting our hearts racing -- but relax, there's really not much to the VX8350 that would warrant such a reaction. Not to say it's a slouch, either: EV-DO, stereo Bluetooth, microSD expansion, dual color displays with external music controls, and a 1.3 megapixel cam all collaborate to make this sucker a worthy successor to the VX8300 it replaces. Grab it now for a shade under $80 on contract after rebates.
