leaked as the Samsung Jasper earlier this year, headed for Big Red. On Monday, the phone quietly joined the lineup at Best Buy Mobile for $449.99 under its new name, without a contract. The Samsung Galaxy Stellar is equipped with a 4 inch WVGA screen and has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor under the hood. With Android 4.0 running the show, there is a 3.2MP camera on back and LTE connectivity.
So just where is that "Starter mode"? Perhaps a better question would be, what IS the "Starter mode"?. Our guess would be that it is some type of UI that helps new smartphone users quickly adapt to the phone. Another mystery is why Amazon's apps are being promoted instead of the Google Play Store.
If you need this phone now, you can shell out the $449.99 at Best Buy Mobile. If you can wait, the leaked ad suggests a $99.99 price from Verizon sometime in the future, although you will be tying yourself up with Big Red for two years.
