Default Time to rethink the Stratosphere

Its clearly not a gs2 at this point.. maybe its the rumored 4G slider like the Epic 4G..

The Charge isn't much more than a glorified Fascinate.. and I am kind of partial to a slider

The epic weighs the same as the Charge and has the same specs aside screen.. the leaked roadmap said it would be gingerbread too

Does that interest anyone but me?

I can't decide how important a slider is/isn't to me. I have an OG Droid and I have to say I do like the physical keyboard. But for a true beast I might be willing to put the effort into liking a non-slider. I think you and I are in the minority for liking sliders - apparently they aren't "cool" but then I've never been a cool kid LOL

Yea i would have bought the d3 in a second if it were 4g..

I guess with a big enough screen the keys are almost as big as on a physical keyboard..

Wow, I didn't know this forum is resurrected today. Most folks here already moved to Nexus Prime forum. I'm not sure if stratosphere (single core 4G slider) is coming at all. Verizon is getting Prime later in Fall from all indications, so I have zero interest in stratosphere even if it's real.

Here you go: Samsung Stratosphere (LTE) for Verizon Revealed (Images). Some actual images of the elusive Stratosphere.

Edit: Plus this says it will be released next week!

So the Stratosphere is a LTE Galaxy S with a slide out keyboard. Glad I didn't get too hyped about this phone. Time to wait on the Prime or Vigor.

This is what was to be expected. Everyone who thought it would be anything more than a mid range lte slider was dreaming.

Mystery solved... I guessed wrong. Suppose this is great news for folks who absolutely NEED a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, though. Good for them!

Hey, I'll be looking at this phone when I go in to check out the Bionic! I would like a slider, but I don't think I like this one's curves. It reminds me of the Charge.

The epic is a solid phone.. but i did note a lot of battery life complaints on wimax 4g.. its a 1500mah.. im afraid it wont be any better than the current crop in that regard..

The Stratosphere is supposed to have an 1800mAh battery, which is better than even the Thunderbolt. I don't understand why everyone is comparing this to the Droid Charge or Nexus Prime. This phone is a QWERTY slider, it's a horse of a different color. Hardware QWERTY keyboards are few and far in between, and I find that sad. I really dislike my Motorola Devour but I'd rather have it than the Thunderbolt, Droid Charge, Droid X, or Nexus Prime because at least it has a goddamn keyboard. LTE slider phones are desperately needed and the Stratosphere is finally filling that void. Sure, I'm hoping HTC or Motorola will jump on board and cram a better processor into one, but it's looking like this will be my next phone.

Would you care to share where you saw that? That's even bigger than Bionic's 1735mAh, Charge's 1600mAh. And what's the processor, RAM like in stratosphere?

That's the same size as the SGS2 so it's no surprise the Stratosphere could have that.

Stratosphere is more likely to be close to the Epic 4G form factor (1500 mAh) than the SGS2..

I remember seeing that the Stratosphere would have a small bump from the Epic, probably 1600mAh, but I can't remember where I saw it nor can I substantiate it better than that..
