Hot on the heels of AT&T's own LTE launch, Verizon Wireless is rounding out their own LTE handset line-up with a value model, the Pantech Breakout. This phone's not going to light the world on fire, but with a 1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 4" WVGA screen and 16 GB of storage on board, it's not too far off the specs of much of the rest of Verizon's LTE stable. Wireless hotspot is on tap with a 10 device cap, along with 5 MP/720p rear-facing and VGA front-facing cameras. Designwise, Pantech's bringing us something a little more decorous than the black slates we typically see, we'll reserve judgment on the decor till we have one in hand. We don't know what SoC's inside, nor the baseband, but at that price we're guessing something in the Cortex-A8 category. Sales start on September 22nd for $99 on-contract with Verizon's capped data plans. We're hoping to get a few more shots of the phone, we'll update with a gallery once we get a hold of more pics.

    why are the proximity sensors on the left and the mic on the right, it should be the other way around for right handed people
    it seems that the phone pic was mirrored for some reason...
    and yet,the Verizon logo and the display pic are OK...
