Not that it was any surprise to us, but the Pantech Duo has made its way to the AT&T network in all its dual-sliding glory. We were fortunate enough to grab a unit a couple days early, and found ourselves loving the concept of the device. We never thought we’d say this, but the handset is almost too small for real power-usage. At least for us. The QWERTY keyboard is nice, but lays completely flat unlike the Helio Ocean. The actual number pad is great with awesome tactile feedback, and we found the Duo very zippy in almost everything from web browsing, to MMS sending, and email. Throw in BlackBerry Connect, AT&T, and you got a consumer and prosumer hit on your hands. It’s available starting today for $199.99 with a 2-year agreement.
