Today, Verizon Wireless began selling the 4G LTE capable Pantech Breakout. Unlike its related Android 4G LTE smartphones, the Breakout is actually priced inexpensively– only $99 on a two year contract. Before you start assuming its specs are merely low-to-mid-range, let me dispel that rumor. In terms of specs, it comes with a 1GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, a 4 inch touch screen display, and Android 2.3. While it may not sport a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, the single-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM is still pretty solid for just a hundred dollars.
In addition, it features a 5MP rear facing camera, VGA front facing camera, 4G LTE mobile hotspot capability, 8GB onboard memory, and Swype pre-loaded. Again, you can purchase the Breakout by Pantech starting today for $99 on a two year contract with Verizon Wireless.
