Samsung Stratosphere II makes IRL appearance at Best Buy for $100


Remember the Samsung Stratosphere II that got all sorts of official the other day? Well, a little birdie just fed us a few more details to flesh out this tale, including our first pics of an actual device and not just some press renders. In addition to the QWERTY keyboard and dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, we can also tell you this guy sports 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a 5 megapixel camera. If the paltry internal storage has you hemming and hawing, you can take solace in the microSD slot. The one spec that has us a tad concerned is the smallish 1,800mAh battery, but we'll reserve judgement there until we see it in action.

Interestingly, the street date is blank in Best Buy's inventory system, so we have no idea when you'll be able to pick this guy up. Heck, it could be on shelves now in some stores, though we sincerely doubt that, as it's yet to make an appearance on Verizon's site. But, when it does you'll be able to snag one for $100 with a two-year contract, which is $30 less than the announced pricing from Big Red. Check out the gallery below for a bit more.
