The ad team at Samsung have wasted no time releasing their first official video spot for what’s now called the Samsung Stratosphere, this device officially detailed earlier today live from CTIA in California. What we get to see here is just about the most professional looking flipping around of the device complete with specifications galore, this making the device seem rather appeasing as a single-core device in a dual-core world. Will its added security features and the fact that it’s the only keyboard-toting Super AMOLED Plus having 4G LTE device on the market set consumers to sway its way?
This certainly is a Galaxy S – styled device, but it won’t be coming with the newest version that we’re seeing on the USA Galaxy S II lineup. That said, it has just about everything else – oh except the dual-core processor, you’ll still be using a 1GHz single-core Hummingbird here. This will be the second Samsung device to be capable of using its 4G LTE network, and with Android 2.3.x Gingerbread, you’ll be up to date on the Android front. This is currently the only device on Verizon’s LTE network to feature a keyboard, and a… classic looking keyboard at that.
The display is 4-inch and WVGA Super AMOLED Plus, meaning it’s certainly bright enough to beat the competition, but should you place it next to any of the Galaxy S II units out there (three of the, starting this week,) you might fall short. That said, there are, again, some added security features you’ll see mentioned briefly in the video promo, and this device is inexpensive at $149.99 attached to a 2-year contract starting October 13th. Certainly not meant to win any races – made to fill out some holes in the Verizon lineup instead.
Also remember to check out the sale pack this week via AmazonWireless for Verizon – all devices for a penny. Yes, a penny!
