We have seen the Pantech Perception make some waves before over here at Ubergizmo, where it arrived at the FCC a couple of months ago, while being leaked early on in the year. Well, all’s well that ends well, which is why the Pantech Perception from Verizon Wireless is all set to be released. This new smartphone will be an exclusive device over at Verizon Wireless, where it will sport Motion Sense technology that enables users to wave a hand over the handset to pick up a call, to scroll through your list of contacts, or even to select whether you want to skip to the next track in your playlist or not.
Other than touchless access and navigation, the Pantech Perception will also be equipped with a generous 4.8” HD Super AMOLED display, where it is accompanied by an 8-megapixel camera at the back and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, in addition to 16GB of internal memory and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice, although Verizon has promised to roll out a Jelly Bean update in the near future. If you are interested in the Pantech Perception, it can be yours for $99.99 a pop – after a $50 mail-in rebate and new 2-year agreement, of course, from April 25 onwards. [Press Release]
