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.
