Pantech Breakout breaks out September 22nd at Verizon; spec sheet and user guide leak
Verizon's next 4G LTE enabled phone is expected to be the Pantech Breakout and unlike the just released Motorola DROID BIONIC, this handset gives up some of the bells and whistles in exchange for a more affordable price. If 4G is going to be what 3G is now, carriers will have to start offering 4G handsets that the crowd can afford

Droid Life was able to get its hand on the official spec sheet for the phone and we can tell you that the Pantech Breakout will have a 4 inch WVGA screen with a single-core 1GHz processor under the hood. A 5MP camera is on the rear capturing video at 720p, while a VGA shooter is in the front. Swipe to type app Swype is pre-installed and the Pantech custom UI runs over Android 2.3. The spec sheet shows that the phone will launch on all channels starting September 22nd. While no pricing information was revealed, we would expect to see the Pantech Breakout priced at $199.99 with a signed 2-year pact.

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.
