If there's one thing to be said about Verizon's 4G LTE network - aside from the speed, of course - it's that the devices equipped to run on it have been less than economically priced up to this point. Each device released with LTE connectivity has dropped with an initial price of at least $250 (usually more) -- a less than ideal price considering the accompanying two-year agreement.
Enter the Pantech Breakout, VZW's first affordable LTE handset.
If you've been looking for a not-small-enough-to-be-a-phone-but-not-big-enough-to-be-a-tablet device (and the Dell Streak 5 just isn't your cup of tea), then the upcoming Pantech Vega No.5 may be just what the doctor ordered. Before we dive into the specs, you should be aware that there is no word on when (or if) the Vega No.5 will ever become available internationally, but it will be available in Korea later this month.
With that out of the way, here are the deetz:
5" 800*480 display
1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
1GB DDR2 RAM
16GB On-board storage
8MP rear camera with 1080p video capture
front camera (no exact specs given)
Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
And a 5 minute video demo:
It definitely looks like the Vega No.5 packs a nice punch underneath its semi-large hood.
