Verizon and PCD today announced the Pantech Marauder, a 4G LTE Android phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a "starter mode" for people new to Android or who prefer a simpler interface. The starter mode has four home screens with preset widgets, including a dialer, and a simplified lock screen. On-device guided tours also help new users learn the ins and outs. There is also a standard mode for users wishing more standard Android. Users can switch between modes at any time without losing any settings or data. Other features include a 5-megapixel camera, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, DLNA wireless media streaming, and a memory card slot. Distributed by PCD, the Marauder will go on sale August 2 for $100, with two-year contract and before $50 rebate.
