Mid-range Pantech Breakout Android 4G smartphone will sell for under $100
Tuesday 20 September 2011
Money conscious consumers in the US don’t have to compromise on features and connectivity when they come to buy their next Android device as mobile makers are starting to roll out sub-$100 smartphones with 4G connectivity, access to thousands of apps and more than adequate technical specs.
The Pantech Breakout made by Personal Communications Devices (PCD) is the latest budget-friendly Android handset to make its way onto shelves in the US.
The Pantech Breakout sports Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, a 1 GHz processor, a 4” touchscreen display, a 5MP camera with 720p video recording capabilities and DLNA connectivity.
While most 4G-capable smartphones are currently selling for around $250 on a two-year contract there are lots of options for consumers that don’t want to spend that much.
Consumers looking for a wallet-friendly Android smartphone with 4G connectivity should also investigate the Huawei Impulse 4G ($22.99 on a 2-year contract), the Samsung Exhibit 4G ($29.99 on a two-year contract), the Samsung Gravity SMART ($29.99 on a two-year contract) and the Samsung Conquer 4G ($99 on a two-year contract).
One of the most enticing deals for a sub-$100 Android smartphone is the Nexus S 4G which has been reduced to $99.99 on a two-year contract.
The Pantech Breakout will be sold exclusively from American carrier Verizon Wireless from September 22 for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract.
