Does the idea of an Android 4.0 QWERTY slider on Verizon with a WVGA display excite you? Then head on over to Verizon's website, and order yourself a Stratosphere II. Announced a couple weeks ago, the Stratosphere II is definitely on the low end of mid range, with a 4" 480x800 display, Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Android 4.0, and a 5MP rear shooter.


We've also heard from a tipster that some RadioShack locations may already have the Stratosphere II on sale, and for free on contract as part of their Black Friday promotions - a pretty big savings over Verizon's price. So if you are actually interested in this phone, we suggest shopping around before making a commitment. Our tipster also shared a photo.

Thanks, Steve!

    Finally, a Samsung phone with the Back key to the left of the Home key (other than the Nexuses, of course).

    The pictures used in this story are mine, I got the phone Wednesday night at my local Radio Shack for free with 2 year contract. They had it on display, had 1 in stock and sold it to me happily.
