Samsung Stratosphere Officially Launches On Verizon On October 13th For $149

Early rumours indicated that the Samsung Stratosphere would be released in September, and there were even leaked press shots of the device. However, here we are in October, and Verizon has just now taken the wraps off of the Stratosphere.

Billed as the "first 4G LTE smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard," the Samsung Stratosphere packs a hefty package, including:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 1 GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor
  • 4-inch (800x480) WVGA Super AMOLED display
  • 4G LTE
  • 5-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB on-board memory
  • 4GB pre-installed microSD card (up to 32GB supported)
  • 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera (720p HD playback and 480p recording)
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n

The Stratosphere is clearly targeted towards the business user as alongside the QWERTY keyboard, the device will also have "enhanced B2B-enabled connectivity services from Cisco, the most comprehensive mobile implementation of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) and support for secure remote device management from Sybase Afaria." Additionally, the device will support "Samsung’s Enterprise Platform enhancements such as VPN, encryption and Mobile Device Management (MDM)." This is a powerful phone that looks to attack RIM's enterprise stronghold and take-away market share from the BlackBerry by offering support for features corporate users find essential.

Sprint Announces 4G Switch From WiMax To LTE By 2013

Sprint announced today it will be switching 4G technologies from WiMax to LTE. The LTE network should go live in mid 2012 and and have a "full rollout" by 2013. Sprint eventually hopes to double current amount of 4G customers with its LTE rollout.

Joining the LTE ranks puts Sprint in the same technology corner as AT&T and Verizon, with only T-Mobile still clinging to HSPA+. Sprint's slice of the LTE airways will be the 800 and 1900Mhz spectrum and, pending the FCC's blessing, 1600MHz.

Looks Like There's Another Facebook Phone On The Horizon - The FCC Meets Motorola's EX225 and EX226

It looks like Motorola has a Facebook feature phone up its sleeve - the Motorola EX225 is set to join ranks with the HTC Status as a socially-focused phone with a dedicated Facebook key. A device almost exactly like the EX225 - sans the Facebook integration - also made an appearance at the FCC, affectionately named EX226.

Tests confirm that both devices are headed for AT&T with 3G capability, though the EX226 only supports AT&T's 850MHz spectrum and lacks compatibility with 802.11n.
