Looking for another Verizon 4G LTE smartphone? The Pantech Breakout might be a decent alternative to the current offerings from the usual suspects, HTC, Motorola and Samsung. If you have been a fan of Pantech hardware, or are looking for something new, the Pantech Breakout probably won’t disappoint. It’s a DLNA-enabled Android 2.3 Gingerbread device, and it will connect you to the nation’s fastest 4G network. What more could you ask for?
Here are some details and specs for your geeky pleasure:
- Powered by 4G LTE – customers can expect download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps in 4G mobile broadband coverage areas
- Android™ 2.3 Gingerbread
- 1 GHz processor
- 4-inch capacitive touch display (480 x 800)
- Support for Google™ Mobile Services, including Gmail™, YouTube™, Google Search™ and Google Maps™, as well as access to more than 250,000 apps available to download from Android Market™
- 4G LTE mobile hotspot supporting up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
- Virtual QWERTY keyboard featuring SWYPE™ technology for quick and easy typing of messages and emails
- 5-megapixel autofocus rear-facing camera with HD video capture up to 720p
- VGA front-facing camera for still shots and video chatting
- Wi-Fi connectivity 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth® 3.0 support includes headset, hands-free, object push, advanced audio distribution (stereo), audio/video remote control, file transfer and phonebook access
- 8 GB pre-installed microSD™
An 8GB microSD is pre-installed, but Verizon doesn’t specify the Pantech Breakout’s maximum capacity, so we’d have to imagine that it’s the standard 32GB expansion that you’d find on similar devices.
The Pantech Breakout becomes available on September 22, which is this Thursday, for $99.99 with a new, two-year contract. That’s not a bad deal considering all the goodies you get, something you’d normally expect to pay upwards of $200 for, or more. Especially when considering Verizon’s other 4G LTE smartphone offerings.
