Updated: added details.

Verizon Wireless today announced that the Pantech Perception, a global Android smartphone, will go on sale beginning April 25. According to Verizon, Motion Sense is the Perception's stand-out feature. Motion Sense allows Perception owners to answer phone calls, scroll through the contact app, flip through photo albums, or advance songs by waving their hand in front of the device. This feature is similar to Air Gesture on the Samsung Galaxy S 4. Other features of the Pantech Perception include a 4.8-inch 1280 z 720p HD Super AMOLED display; 8-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel user-facing camera; 1.5GHz dual core processor with 1GB of RAM; LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, and mobile hotspot; and 16GB of on-board storage. The Perception will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean quickly. The device will cost $99.99 after $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year agreement.

Verizon does not equal timely updates

The Perception will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean quickly.

You mean in 2 to 3 months they might push it out the update, but expect it to be 4 to 6 months so Verizon can test the update and add bloatware to it!
If this was an unlocked phone for a GSM carrier then it might get a timely update but Verizon is notoriously slow when it comes to updating device software, or at least the updates they can control.

Nice Specs...

From Pantech?

Confused
Not really sure why Verizon likes Pantech so much. But it does have decent specs.
