There is another player in the 4G LTE world on Verizon Wireless – the Pantech Breakout. And it’s launching this coming Thursday on September 22nd for $99.99. Of course that’s after a $50 mail-in rebate, but that’s pretty reasonably priced for all that you’re getting in this device. So what are you getting? For starters you have 4G LTE connectivity, which is something the next iPhone may not even have.
Check out the complete spill of features below:
