Samsung Galaxy Stellar with 4G LTE is announced, yours for free on contract
Verizon announced today one of the latest additions to its Android lineup – the Samsung Galaxy Stellar, which is a rather simple handset made for first-time smartphone users. What makes it suitable for the purpose you ask? Well, it is the pre-configured dual interface option: in "Starter Mode", users are presented with a clean, uncluttered home screen hosting widgets for their favorite apps, contacts, and frequently used settings. If the user wants to, they can easily switch back to Standard Mode and get the traditional Android interface with all the flexibility and advanced features that it offers.

When it comes to hardware, it is worth noting the the Samsung Galaxy Stellar is a 4G LTE device, meaning that it should be able to reach some pretty decent data transfer rates. The processor inside it is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon clocked at 1.2GHz, and its 4-inch display has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. On its back is positioned a 3.2-megapixel auto-focus camera, while a 1.3MP cam for video chats is positioned above its screen. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is installed out of the box. Oh, and before we forget, the Samsung Galaxy Stellar is a SAFE-approved device, with support for advanced encryption methods, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, and robust VPN networking, which makes the smartphone secure enough for enterprise use.

Verizon will make the Samsung Galaxy Stellar available on its online store and in retail outlets starting September 6. Getting one will cost you nothing after a $50 mail-in rebate, as long as you don't mind signing a 2-year contract.

when the next iphone is released, iphone 4's price is predicted to be zero on-contract, but free is still expensive compared to it.

this is why 1 of every 4 android devices is a Samsung they are flooding the market with multiple crapware devices at multiple price points for different carriers. you have the S3 an awesome high end, the S2 a solid hiher end mid level device and hell if they market the OG Epic ( sprints variant of the Galaxy s) right it would be a good solid entry level... aarg.

this is actually good for verizon wireless.. I teach the workshops for android and iphone.. and normally when recommending a starter ( dummy proof ) phone I normally suggest the lg lucid or iphone for begginers.. and this phone will make life so much easier for those people 40+ ( age wise) who want to get into the smartphone era.
