Conclusion: The Pantech Matrix Pro shows great improvement over last year's Pantech Duo , and it offers that extra dose of smartness over the Pantech Matrix in the web browser, email and syncing departments. With the Motorola Q9 Global and Samsung BlackJack II discounted since they've been on the market a while, the Matrix Pro is a harder sell given the similar feature set and price difference.
Pros: Relatively small, reasonably attractive, very good reception, good GPS, great audio quality over Bluetooth A2DP stereo. Very usable keyboard given the small size-- good tactile feedback.
Cons: Voice quality is good overall, but our test unit's call quality sometimes randomly degraded. No WiFi. Slippery and shows fingerprints like mad. Number pad impossible to use for blind dialing.
