Verizon launches sub-$100 LTE smartphone Verizon has introduced their first sub-$100 LTE phone today, the Pantech Breakout.
That price point requires a 2-year contract and a minimum 2GB data tier plan, but at $99, the price is significantly cheaper than Verizon's other offerings (unless you do the Amazon promotion).

For specs, the Breakout runs on Gingerbread, has a 1 GHz single-core processor, a 4-inch touchscreen with 800480 resolution, 720p HD video, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS, dual cameras, and of course, Verizon's 4G LTE.

In Verizon stores, the cheapest 4G devices you will find are likely the high-end Droid Charge and Thunderbolt, each which retail for $200-250 with contract.

Rival AT&T just launched their 4G LTE service in 5 cities but has no phones available to use it.
