The word stratosphere usually invokes thoughts about our planet’s upper atmosphere and outer space. Now Samsung and Verizon Wireless bring a new meaning to the term stratosphere with their latest smartphone device, the Samsung Stratosphere. This latest breed of smartphone makes the other smart phone devices seem outdated. Once you move up to the Samsung Stratosphere you won’t ever want to go back.
This model comes under the Samsung Galaxy S family and is the second device in this family to be a 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) smartphone and to have an Android 2.3 Gingerbread system. This system will ensure updates from the Android wave plus easy accessibility to all Google services.
The Samsung Stratosphere has a four inch Super AMOLED screen that’s accompanied by a five row QWERTY keyboard making typing and maneuvering through this phone a piece of cake. Besides Microsoft Exchange Active Sync support, it is also B2B activated via Cisco making it more suitable for business and all you road warriors out there. But don’t let the business features stop you!
Instead of dual core, it still uses 1GHz single-core Humming Bird, but don’t let that throw you off. It has a download speed of 5Mbps – 12Mbps and upload speeds of 2Mbps to 5Mbps when you’re within a 4G Mobile coverage area. The Stratosphere has two cameras, the 5.0 Megapixel with LED flash at the back and the 1.3 Megapixel up front.
Of course the Samsung Stratosphere is WIFI capable and has some pretty cool security features. It’s one of the most complete packages we’ve seen and won’t leave you wanting for more. The phone has a market list price of $ 499.00 and should be available at the nearest Verizon Wireless outlet near you. You might also want to consider a super convenient online purchase through the Amazon Wireless store, the new Samsung Stratosphere is available for only $.01 (one penny) depending on the service type/plan you choose. Now that’s almost free!
