Verizon launches Pantech Perception with Motion Sense, Android Jelly Bean coming later

Several months after we presented you the first image of it, the Pantech Perception has been announced by Verizon Wireless today.

The new smartphone will be available starting this Thursday (April 25), both online and in Verizon retail stores. It’s going to cost $99.99 on contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The Perception comes with a new technology called Motion Sense – this allow you to “wave a hand over the phone to answer a call, scroll through contacts, change a song being played or find a picture from their library.” That aside, the handset features LTE connectivity, a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 720 pixels, 2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera with flash, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and 16GB of internal memory.

Unfortunately, the Pantech Perception will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich at launch. But Verizon says it’s going to be updated to Jelly Bean “soon.”

The only other Pantech smartphone that’s currently available at Verizon is the Marauder, which is offered for free on contract, coming with a sliding QWERTY keyboard.
