The first details and images for Verizon’s next Pantech smartphone have landed online, suggesting a low-cost Breakout successor is close at hand. According to a source close to Android and Me, the Pantech Star Q looks to run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and feature a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor.  Additional specs are reported to include a 4-inch WVGA display, 3-megapixel rear camera, front-facing camera, and 4G LTE connectivity.

As you can see from the image above, the Pantech Star Q features a sliding QWERTY keyboard, something its predecessor lacked.  Considering the rumored $99 price point and timing, this will likely be pushed late summer as kids head back to school or college.

What’s your impression of the Pantech Star Q thus far?  Would you consider one for $99 or do you need more from your Android?

UPDATE: It appears that this handset may also have a different name as PhoneArena is reporting on a Pantech Marauder with similar specs.
