Pantech Breakout Smartphone Lands at Verizon with 4G LTE in Tow
Verizon Wireless has just announced the Pantech Breakout, this new Android smartphone packs in Verion’s 4G LTE technology. That means that the phone is capable of download speeds between 5 and 12Mpbs, and upload speeds of between 2 and 5Mbps. Under the hood, the device is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and it sports a 1GHz processor, a 4″ display with a 480×800 resolution, and it has mobile hotspot support for up-to 10 devices – which is double the standard 5 you would expect to see. The Breakout also features a 5 megapixel auto-focus rear facing camera that is cable to record 720P HD video, and it has a VGA front-facing camera for video chats. Finally, the device also comes with a pre-installed 8GB microSD.
Overall, the Pantech Breakout is hardly the most exciting phone, but it seems like a well-rounded device. The Pantech Breakout will be available for $99.99 after a $50 rebate, with a two year contract.
