Verizon has finally acknowledged the existence of the LTE-capable Pantech Breakout, a handset that we’ve seen quite a few times until now. The largest US mobile carrier has announced that the Breakout would be available starting September 22 (this Thursday) for $99 on contract after a $50 mail-in rebate – thus becoming the cheapest 4G phone on Verizon.
The Breakout runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and offers a 4. inch WVGA display, “custom Pantech widgets”, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording, VGA front-facing camera, 1GHz processor, and an 8GB memory card pre-installed.
The Pantech Breakout will be Verizon’s fifth 4G LTE handset, after the HTC Thunderbolt, LG Revolution, Samsung Droid Charge, and Motorola Droid Bionic.
