It does not get more official than this. AT&T has announced that the Pantech duo is now available in the US. The Pantech duo is a global smart device that takes “cool” to a higher level in redefining form and function. Boasting an innovative dual-sliding, double-keyboard design, the Pantech duo marks a new breed of mobile handset — created to address the lifestyle needs of both business customers and consumers. In addition, the UMTS/HSDPA-enabled Pantech duo is one of the first devices in the AT&T portfolio to be powered by the Windows Mobile 6 operating system.
The Pantech duo is powered by a Marvell 416MHz processor and Windows Mobile 6 Standard. It features quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity, 2 separate keyboards (a vertically sliding numeric keypad and a horizontally sliding QWERTY keyboard), a 2.2-inch QVGA display, 64MB RAM and 128MB ROM, Bluetooth 1.2, a 1.3MP camera and a microSD card slot.
The AT&T Pantech duo is currently available for USD$199.99 (with a two year service contract) at AT&T retail stores nationwide, online at www.wireless.att.com, at select national retailers and through AT&T’s business-to-business sales organizations.
