While not all that interesting...
can't really say it's a surprise. Pantech's smartphones are some of the worst on the market. They make a decent flip phone but that's about it. They have a terrible rep and have yet to release a device that has come close to making that better at all, in fact I would say nearly every device they release only makes them worse.

Not a bad device at all, but it will have to wait it turn until the SIII goes EOL/OOS... At the same exact price point on Verizon, the SIII is the better choice as Samsung is simply the known commodity and also has ICS already as well.

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.
