Samsung Stratosphere – Verizon’s First 4G LTE QWERTY – Now Available From Verizon Wireless for $150

If you need a decent Samsung QWERTY device in your life, Verizon’s got something for you to check out. It’s the Samsung Stratosphere that’s long been talked about (but only because it was first rumored to be a potential Galaxy S II device).

Even though it’s not the monster many of you have probably wanted, it’s worth a look. Its 4 inch Super AMOLED display, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5 megapixel rear camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera makes us see it as another Galaxy S variant.

It’s similar to the Epic 4G in that it has a slide-out QWERTY and 4G LTE, as well, making it their first ever 4G LTE device with a hardware keyboard of any kind. They only want $150 for this thing so if you want a decent phone with 4G and what’s sure to be an above average 5-row keyboard hurry on over to this link.

    has anyone used a phone with 5 row keyboard in the real world? is it worth it? my D2 seems to suffice just fine, especially with the ALT key on the bottom left, easy access.

    If only it had 1GB RAM and dual-core and a bigger screen and nfc. Oh well…

    If you have an individual account or the primary of a family plan, its free at wirefly. $40 for a secondary line… which annoys me because my line isn’t up for an upgrade but my g/f is and I can’t steal the upgrade through Wirefly, only at VZW.

    idk..i guess for a simple user its fine..but to me the specs are too behind.

      Yea.. its definitely a middle of the road phone by today’s standards. Its essentially the Samsung Epic 4G that Sprint released about 14 months ago.

    $409 off-contract makes this pretty appealing. Isn’t that $50 less than the D3?

    checked one out tonight at the local Verizon store… I wasn’t too impressed by how loose the slider mechanism was on it. It only came out today, so it’s not like that slider was loose from use. Is slider mechanism loose on the Epic 4G as well?

    free @ wirefly for upgrades is tempting. I’m going to hold off unless my local BB stocks the phone and will pricematch… that way I get a decent return period to give time for Galaxy Nexus slider or whatever to show their face.. or if it isn’t that much of an upgrade over my 1GHz OG droid
