Unannounced Pantech Caper pops up at CTIA [U]

Pantech Caper appears unmentioned at CTIA

(Update: photos fixed) PCD's booth at CTIA inadvertently gave away Pantech's plans for a budget messaging phone on Verizon. The Caper is a prepaid phone explicitly aimed at "your 'tween or teen mobile user" with a candybar QWERTY shape. Most of the details haven't been mentioned, but a 1.3-megapixel back camera and a 2.2-inch display make it an unmistakable starter phone.

Neither PCD, Pantech, nor Verizon has confirmed the existence of the Caper and have left the real launch details a mystery. Given its public showing and settled naming scheme, though, it could show quickly.

Pricing is very likely to be low; Electronista estimates that it might cost $100 without a contract.
