Pantech Marauder coming to Verizon with ICS and LTE
Well, well, well... it looks like yet another LTE-powered offering will soon come to the nation's most reliable network! After Pantech's last LTE phone for Verizon, the Breakout, failed to achieve hit status, the Seoul-based company will try its luck again, this time with a handset called the Marauder, claims a tipster of ours.

The information we have about this handset is currently pretty scarce. Our source claims that the Pantech Marauder will feature a physical QWERTY keyboard and 5MP camera, but more importantly, it'll have LTE and run on ICS. Due to the 5-megapixel camera, we can conclude that this will be another mid-range product by the manufacturer, which is not a bad thing, of course. It's actually cool, considering that with ICS on board, the Marauder shapes up as a pretty decent affordable smartphone, at least as far as specs go.

It's yet unknown when this handset is going to launch, but when it does, you can count on us to keep you informed!

Thanks, anonymous!

Is this the same as the Star Q?

Love the logic.
It's not going to sell. The Droid 4 and Sammy Stratosphere already out class it and they are probably the same price.

It will probably lack any decent amount of space for downloaded apps and of course, I'm sure the U.I. will be horrible. Just another piece of crap to soon be forgotten about.

Lol I never thought the day would come that a camera would determine if its high end or mid ranged.

I am skeptical for ONE REASON....the name.......PANTECH. Usually when Big Red releases a Pantech product, they release it as an "internet only" device; meaning you can only purchase it on their website. I think they might have lost a little faith in Pantech since they are no longer grouped in with HTC and UT Starcomm. And why should they have faith; Pantech has released nothing but garbage for them (see Crux, Jest, Blitz, and Hotshot also). One day, they will go the same route as Nokia and Kyocera .... Non Existent for VZW.
