Best Of The Best 2006: Mega Phone

<< Back to Robb Report, Best of the Best

At first glance, the LG Electronics VX9800 Verizon cellular phone may appear to be a throwback to the bulkier phones of the 1980s and ’90s, but in fact it provides a huge range of multimedia technology in a compact package.

This multifunctional $200 device merges a Verizon Wireless V Cast cell phone, Bluetooth technology for headset calls, a 1.3-megapixel digital camera, a camcorder, and an MP3 player. You can send e-mails using Verizon’s Wireless Sync protocol and play streaming video from the car­rier’s V Cast service. But what really sets this so-called phone apart are its fold-out stereo speakers, relatively large screen, and normal-style (if microsized) keyboard.
