We’ve known that Verizon plans on adding an affordable smartphone with 4G LTE connectivity to its roster ever since last month. And after a few leaks here and there, Big Red finally decided to make the Pantech Breakout official a few days ago.
Today is Thursday, which is Verizon’s favorite day for releasing new phones. So that can only mean one thing. Indeed, the Pantech Breakout can now be purchased from the carrier for $99.99.
To get the device for that much, you’ll need to sign a new two-year contract. If you get the handset online, overnight shipping is free.
The Pantech Breakout then turns out to be, as we expected, Verizon’s cheapest 4G LTE smartphone to date. So if you’ve always wanted to take advantage of the great speeds that Verizon’s flavor of 4G brings, but didn’t want to shell out a ton of money for a new phone, here’s your chance to get in on that hot LTE action.
The Breakout has a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP camera with 720p HD video recording, a secondary front-facing cam, a 1 GHz processor, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and it comes with an 8 GB microSD card preinstalled.
