Pantech Breakout to Launch Exclusively on Verizon

Verizon Wireless and Pantech today announced the Pantech Breakout will be exclusively available on the Verizon network beginning September 22.

The Pantech Breakout will be on the 4G LTE network and can become a hotspot supporting up to 10 Wi-Fi enabled devices. It will come pre-loaded with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is built with a 1 GHz processor, 4-inch (480 x 800) capacitive touch display, 5-megapixel autofocus rear-facing camera with HD video capture up to 720p with a VGA front-facing camera for still shots and video chatting.

Overall the device sounds to have some decent power in it, it reminds me of the HTC freestyle, just a lot more powerful and useful. I am generally interested to see what makes it different from most Android phones already in the market, although from the looks of Pantech’s previous library I don’t have much hope that it will stand out as something amazing or intuitive. I am sure we will see some ‘rad’ Dew Tour champions walking around with a few for publicity, otherwise, I feel like the Breakout will just sink into the ocean of other Android devices.

The Pantech Breakout will be available at Verizon stores or their homepage on September 22 for $99.99 with a two-year contract.
