First Look: Samsung Stratosphere (Verizon)

1:13 /

The crystal-clear Super AMOLED screen, front-facing camera, and 4G speeds are great, but the Stratosphere is really making a business play.

Hey everyone, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET.com here at CTIA in San Diego. What I've got in my hands is the Samsung Stratosphere. This is a new phone for Verizon and a big deal with this phone is that it's much more enterprise-friendly, so it's got VPN, it's got on-phone encryption, and it's got support from Microsoft ActiveSync that will be your corporate e-mail or your calendars, things like that. Specs wise, it's got a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen that's bright and clear and really pretty to use. It's also running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. One of its other claims to fame is that it is the first 4G LTE for Verizon that comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. So, it's got a 5-megapixel camera and camcorder on the back, a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front. It runs off of a 1 gigahertz single-core processor. It costs $149.99 with a new 2-year service agreement and that will be available on October 13. So, I'm Jessica Dolcourt this is the Samsung Stratosphere for Verizon and you're watching CNET.com.
