Pantech Perception Available April 25

Answering a phone call should be effortless. There are times though where our hands may be messy in the kitchen or we’re running from one place to the next and our hands are full with coffee, keys (sometimes coffee and keys) and the phone rings. What should be an effortless task can sometimes be a challenge, the new Pantech Perception looks to solve that.
The new smartphone, a Verizon Wireless exclusive, aims to change that with Motion Sense. The technology lets users wave a hand over the phone to answer a call, scroll through contacts, change a song being played or find a picture from their library.
Aside from touchless access and navigation, the Perception screen is a large 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED, an 8 rear megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel front. There’s 16GB of memory for storing videos, pictures and whatever else. Also included is the Camnote app, which lets users capture and save their notes to their phone so they can stay organized. The exclusive app also lets users share those notes with other co-workers and friends using 4G LTE.
The Global Ready Pantech Perception with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (soon to be upgraded to Jelly Bean) will be available online at www.verizonwireless.com and in stores for $99.99 with a $50 mail-in rebate and new two-year customer agreement beginning April 25.
