Apr 25, 2013, 17:43 ET from Personal Communications Devices, LLC

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Brought to market by Personal Communications Devices, LLC (PCD), the highly anticipated new Pantech Perception launched today on Verizon Wireless. Exclusively available on America's largest 4G LTE network with Verizon Wireless, this device was designed with tech-savvy early adopters, and the always-connected smartphone consumer in mind.

The new Pantech Perception offers the latest technology for today's media-heavy mobile phone users, such as busy business professionals and tech literate young adults.  Exclusive to the Perception is its touchless Motion Sense technology, which provides high-use functionality with the simple wave of a hand.  Once activated, Perception users need not touch their screen, or any part of their device, to answer a call, change tunes, access a contact, or find a picture on their phone. Another exciting exclusive feature is Camnote technology, which allows users to scan and digitize notes that can then be tagged, searched, organized and shared.

Outfitted with Android Beam, the Perception allows users to share digital content directly with any NFC-enabled smartphone at the tap of a finger, such as a web page with a colleague, or favorite photo with a friend; and the Global Ready Perception, with global roaming coverage, keeps owners connected to friends, family or business associates anywhere in the world. All of this comes to life with a stunning 4.8-inch HD display for rich detail. Heavy media consumers will love the Perception's 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras and its 16GB of memory for storing videos, pictures and music.

"The Perception's Motion Sense technology takes ease-of-use to another level and will literally change people's perceptions of how they interact with their devices," said George Appling, President and CEO of PCD.

Aptly named, the Pantech Perception will make a great gift idea for upwardly mobile consumers celebrating perception-changing milestones, like new moms and dads for Mothers and Fathers day, and the high school and college grad who is about to develop a whole new outlook on the world.

The Global Ready Pantech Perception with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (soon to be upgraded to Jelly Bean) is available online at and in stores for $99.99 with a $50 mail-in rebate and new two-year customer agreement.
