Pantech Perception with HD, LTE, pictured for Verizon
It was only a few days ago that AT&T launched a fairly attractive looking handset from Pantech — the Discover — which happens to be that company’s first 720p device in the States. Now the Korean manufacturer looks to spread 720p offerings to other US carriers, with Verizon slated to pick up the Pantech Perception this quarter.
Quite a step up from the QWERTY-equipped Marauder, Pantech’s last Android on VZW, Perception (model: ADR930L) promises a powerful Snapdragon S4 processor from Qualcomm, clocked at 1.5GHz. Alongside the 1196 x 720 pixel display, early specs here make Perception seem like a good value for buyers: Discover costs a mere $50 subsidized, which bodes well for its close cousin.
