One of the specific goals of Verizon is to pursue specific phone users to take on smartphones, that will increase their profits (the carriers) to bring the contract to the duration of a two year period. Though, most will be restraining from buying a smartphone because of how some may be intimidating about the deal, though Pantech is looking to change all of that with their latest Marauder for Verizon and their 4G LTE network.
Currently running Android 4.0, the newest Pantech Marauder is offering two options for it’s user interface: Standard and Starter mode. Basically, Starter mode is pointing towards helping newbs into using smartphones in offering basic home screens and very helpful widgets. And for more advanced smartphone users, the Standard mode then offers a experience that is stock with even more home screens and also a lock screen, which is customizable even.
And for newer smartphone users, I obviously suggest the Starter mode first, and to then switch over to Standard mode after a few months from using the phone enough that your used to it. The Starter mode is actually akin to learning to ride a bike with training wheels if you think about it, while Standard mode is like getting on a bike since you already know how to ride a bike.
For the specifications, the Marauder comes with a 1.2Ghz dual-core CPU, 4G LTE, 1GB RAM, and a sliding QWERTY keyboard, 5MP rear facing camera, and also a 3.8″ WVGA screen additionally. It’s a very solid phone in the mid-range genre of smartphones, which may help some users to smartphones that are new to them, if Verizon advertises it properly to them.
The Marauder will be arriving in August on the 2nd, for $50 MIR.
