Verizon announces the Pantech Perception – mid-range Android you can control without touching
As expected, Verizon officially announced the Pantech Perception – a new mid-range smartphone powered by the Android mobile platform. It comes with decent hardware specs, reasonable price tag, and a perk that will surely impress your buddies at the office.
This fancy feature we're talking about is called Motion Sense – a way of controlling the Pantech Perception without touching its display. A wave of the user's hand above the screen answers calls, but contact-less gestures can also be used for scrolling through the contacts list, changing the song that's currently playing, or browsing through the gallery. Yeah, we know that it sounds like a gimmick few people would ever need, but when you think about it, this Motion Sense thing might be of use in case your hands are occupied.
Pantech Perception for Verizon
The Pantech Perception will be available with Verizon – both online and in stores, starting April 25. Pricing is set at $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and your signature under a 2-year contract.
