The Pantech Duo intuitively and stylishly transitions between your communication and computing needs with the dual sliding keyboards. When holding the Duo in a wide, landscape orientation, the QWERTY keyboard slides open for writing e-mail and editing Microsoft Word and Excel documents. And the drop-down numeric keypad is ideal for sending quick texts and dialing on the run. A flip of the wrist initiates either keyboard to address any mobile need. The Duo's lean design houses both keypads and a large 2.2-inch color screen in a device that measures just 0.83 inches thick, 4 inches tall, and 2 inches wide.
