Pantech Launching Compact WinMo Smartphone

. Pantech’s not one to be crying on prom night, so they’re planning on a smartphone that runs Windows Mobile 5, but is small like a Motorola L7 SLVR. There’s going to be two slide-out keyboards, one a full QWERTY that slides out horizontally like the Cingular 8125 or Verizon XV8700, and another keypad to slide out vertically so you can dial, like Samsung’s slider phones.

No word on release date, but Boy Genius has some pics coming soon. And if there’s one thing we love almost as much as pictures of women, babies, puppies, kittens, cars, a boat, the Spruce Goose, and , it’s pictures of phones.
