HTC Rhyme and Samsung Stratosphere in Verizon’s Device Management, Pantech Breakout is Just $149 on Contract

Both the HTC Rhyme and Samsung Stratosphere are now appearing in Verizon’s Device Management system, a sign that they are more than just vapor.  The Stratosphere – a device expected to be like the Epic 4G with slideout keyboard – is confirmed as having 4G LTE radios and no global roaming.  The Rhyme on the other hand is just 3G, but could be a girl-friendly device with Beats by Dre audio.  Each of these devices is looked at as being mid-range.

And speaking of mid-range, we have official pricing for the Pantech Breakout below.  

About what we expected to see – $149 on 2-year contract.  But check out that full retail price of $359.  Even as a lower-tier 4G LTE device, that’s a heck of a low price.

Cheers ___!

    Saw a demo unit of the Pantech last night, ugh, it’s God-awful IMHO. Then again, I was there picking up a Bionic. 🙂

    This is nice and all, but I’m waiting for the big dogs that is the HTC Vigor and Samsung Prime. 😉

      • This is a mans world “said in the guys voice that sings that song”

        I see alot of girls with Droid X’s and X²’s

        • Same here. I’ve seen a lot of girls with those phones and EVOs.

            Usually given to them by their boyfriends or husbands.

            Not true! My phone is usually much more high tech than my husbands and I do all the tech stuff in my household. He just started emailing people back on his own and hardly ever texts. He also is using my old BB because his phone (flip, basic phone) got lost.

      I just don’t see how the color determines whether it’s girl-friendly. I mean the very logo of this site includes pink and let’s not open that can of worms. I’ve seen many “men” with different color cases with includes all colors of the rainbow. Maybe to represent a favorite team…. Jus sayin

      THANK YOU.

      The Rhyme is being marketed to women; that’s not the same thing as girl-friendly. Underspecced phones with no futureproofing to speak of do their target demo a disservice.
