AT&T is now offering the Pantech duo, a 3G smartphone with both a sliding keyboard and a numberpad.

This is the seventh Windows Mobile device in this telcom’s current product lineup, but it uses a design different from all the rest. Some smartphones include a QWERTY that can side out of one side, while others have a sliding numberpad. The Pantech duo has both.

It also features support for AT&T’s 3G UMTS/HSDPA network, and can be used with voice and data networks outside of N. America.

Included in the Pantech duo is Office Mobile, so users can view PowerPoint presentations, as well as view and edit Microsoft Word and Excel documents.

This model runs Windows Mobile 6 Standard on a 416 MHz XScale processor. It has 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of ROM, as well as a microSD memory card slot. Unfortunately, this doesn’t support the SDHC format, limiting it to 2 GB cards.

The duo includes a 2.2-inch, QVGA non-touchscreen display.

It is 4.0 inches by 2.0 inches by 0.83 inches, and weighs 3.9 ounces.

Bluetooth with stereo support and a 1.3 megapixel camera round out this smartphone.

Available Now

The Pantech duo is available now from the AT&T web site. Its base price is $400, but that drops to $250 with a two-year contract and mail-in rebate.
