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.
