Pantech C820 for AT&T – the Duo 2?

Pantech Duo 2 Preliminary Specifications
I think it is Helio Ocean dubbed with Windows Mobile 6.1 to appeal to corporate consumers. The Dual Slider is cool at first, but then doesn't seem worth sacrificing thickness for a number pad (at least with my experience with the Pantech Matrix).

This is still a cool ass looking device, although it's similar to the Ocean. But I can't forget .... it's still a PHONE!!! With that said, it's made by Pantech, so I don't wanna get my hopes up high regarding phone service.

Okay, I'm an AT&T fanboy and even I can tell you that the Rant > Rumor. Even though I'm not fans of either phones, the Rant is so much better. Don't know why anyone would get a Rumor when they could get a Rant for the same price.

lol actually, i work at a 3rd party sprint store, so YES i have played with both of them, and i am not the only person who thinks the rant is slow, crappy sound quality and anything the rant does, that the rumor dosnt do, it does poorly.

wow thats why you think its a better phone, cause you work at a 3rd party story and everyone knows that 3rd party stores mess your shit up. i work at a corporate sprint store and i would sell the rant over the rumor even if the rant was broken tossed in water and had no camera. The Rumor is SHIT, i havent sold in since the rant came out.

L..O...L unfortunately you are wrong about the 3rd party thing, people AVOID sprint corporate cuz they SUCK, adn they are assholes.. and dumb cuz my 3rd party store is radioshack. the number 1 wireless retailer in th nation. and you are a fool for, liking the rant..fuck even my SPRINT REP hates the rant. because the rant is sloooooow, compare it to a samsung m520, (whichis a cheaper and older phone) and it runs smoother and faster than the rant. and the rant cant take the beatiings that a rumor can, and yes i have seen first hand what kind of abuse a rumor can take and im seriously impressed by it. plus the sprint "one touch" interface blows.

great, another phone, another qwerty that is just too damn cramped. and how do you not include wifi OR gps? im so used to using those two features so much id feel like id be going back years without them. and at this point in the rant/rumor argument...there is no winner. side sliding qwerty dumbphones are useless.
