Recently released, the V200 Personal Communicator from Motorola is a next generation communication tool. This unique device combines the full functionality of a wireless phone, a powerful speakerphone, and a PC-like keyboard that makes two-way messaging faster and easier than ever. Also, it includes a WAP browser for Internet access and wireless e-mail. The V200 is the first CDMA device to combine phone and text with a QWERTY keyboard, so you can use your preferred method of communication -- talk or text -- without carrying more than one device.

Features include:

  • Hands-free ear bud/microphone for privacy, ease and safety
  • Built-in speakerphone - great for conference calls
  • Voice-activated dialing for up to 20 contacts
  • Large, six-line text display for clear readability
  • Discreet vibrating incoming-message indicator
  • Access to your e-mail and favorite Web sites
  • Instant messaging with Yahoo! Messenger for Verizon Wireless
  • Talk and text at the same time
  • Customized information alerts - stocks, news, sports and more

The V200 is available to Verizon customers. For more information, visit Verizon.
