Verizon has a pretty big lineup over the next few weeks and months, but now we are starting to see some 4G LTE phones show up with a more moderate price tag. We all know plenty about the Bionic and other 4G superphones but not everyone needs the best. It appears Verizon is now starting to prep some great mid-range offerings on their 4G LTE network and one of those is the Pantech Breakout.

Here we have another Android device headed to Verizon packing some 4G LTE inside. This is the Pantech Breakout 4G LTE Smartphone and it should come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch. We don't know much about Pantech or the Breakout, but we did recently see a Pantech 4G LTE phone clear the FCC named the Apache. This could be the same phone and now we have clearer details with a full spec sheet that was nicely leaked for our viewing pleasure.

Looks like our friends at Big Red will be getting some more 4G LTE love coming in the near future because we just spotted the Pantech Apache hitting the FCC rocking those 4G LTE speeds. Pantech isn't known for higher end smartphones and are relatively new to the Android scene but a LTE device would be a great way to get going here.

Pantech Crossover Review

What we've got here today is Pantech's very first Android effort in the United States. It's certainly no top-tier device, but a mid-range contender it certainly is. That said, as a commenter noted in the hands-on post, it reminds one very much of a phone from 2007 by the name of Helio Ocean. Does that mean its hopelessly outdated? Absolutely not. Have a look at a device that I'd suggest to any one of my relatives who want to get into Android any day of the week. Family and friends lost in the unconnected past, welcome to the mobile future, this is your guide, the Pantech Crossover.

It's rough and tough, costs a total of $69.99 with a 2-year contract attached, and rolls out with a custom user interface that's all Pantech's own. Will it win over your new-to-smartphones friends and relatives to the Android side?

Pantech Releasing 5″ Android Device, Can’t Decide if it’s a Tablet or Phone

In my opinion a 5" screen is smack dead in the middle of the dead zone that exists between tablets and phones. While the Dell Streak used this same screen size, it was far from the being a top seller, mostly because people thought it was just too big. If you're going to get a tablet, 10.1" seems to be the magic number, but at 7", both the Nook Color and Samsung Galaxy Tab are great tablets. A 5" device though, leaves you wanting more screen as long as you're going that big to begin with. It appears that Pantech and I don't see eye to eye.
