The Boy Genius Report: VX9900 and Pantech 820 PPC due September
Field report tidbits from Engadget's mobile insider, the Boy Genius.

The Boy Genius dropped another one on us folks, check out this excerpt from a recent Verizon product timeline. Pantech will be launching a Windows Mobile 5 clamshell device -- running Pocket PC, suprisingly -- come September 4th, the PN-820 we saw in the FCC. That should also be the same day they launch the VX9900, also spotted in the FCC, "big brother to the VX9800 [aka the V] hybrid device with a thinner, sleeker look and feel." Amen to that, because our major complaints with the V had to do with its thickness and unappealing looks. Oh, and to top it off the LG VX8500 Chocolate phone will apparently have Verizon exclusivity for the life of the handset in the US -- though we're not necessarily sure if that means Chocolate phone exclusivity, or merely CDMA Chocolate. Stay tuned.
