Pantech Breakout breaks out September 22nd at Verizon; spec sheet and user guide leak

0. phoneArena 14 Sep 2011, 22:35 posted on

Big Red's next 4G LTE phone is the Pantech Breakout and while the specs won't wow you, the handset will offer Verizon LTE goodness for less than the $300 that the carrier wants for the Motorola DROID BIONIC; of course, that means no dual-core processor under the hood...

This is the perfect phone for DROIDX0430 since he doesn't care about all the bells and whistle we tech nerd like.

dude, KIA makes some great cars now. the new KIA Optima was the best selling car in America last time i checked. my family got an Optima and it gets 24mpg in the city with Turbo, it's spacious and it looks sexy to boot. i have something good to say about nearly every model in KIA's line up now.

I could've made it "the Daewoo of cel phones" but that would be a much bigger insult. I know Kia makes good cars these days, but Hyundai gets all the attention and good designs.

the Sonata is pretty much the same car as the Optima, it might ride a little better and it's a little classier i guess but it's also smaller than the Optima which isn't good for me because i'm 6'1 and needs all the space i can get plus i personally like the more angular looks of the Optima and the Optima is still a really nice car, there's really just small differences between the two, it's not even as different as comparing a Honda Accord to an Acura TL.

$200 for a single core Pantech. No thank you.

Pantech doesn't have enough presence on Verizon to command the upper-range $200 price. I appreciate that they're offering an entry-level LTE device, but they need to price it closer to $100-150.
