Josh Smith from GottaBeMobile takes a look at the new Samsung Stratosphere, which launches on Verizon’s network on October 13.
The Samsung Stratosphere finally has a release date. Starting on October 13th, you’ll be able to go online or to your local Verizon store to pick up the first 4G LTE smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard.
This is great news for users who cannot fathom a switch to an on screen keyboard. Many times these users have to put up with second rate smartphones, but looking at the Samsung Stratosphere specs — physical keyboard lovers can enjoy decent specs.
The highlights include a 4″ Super AMOLED Display, 4G LTE and the physical keyboard, but users will also appreciate the front facing camera and 5MP rear camera capable of 720P video.
Most physical keyboard fans I have met aren’t afraid of touchscreen keyboards, but have difficulty typing due to hand size or fingernail, so it’s nice to see a 4G LTE device that meets their needs.
