wow be a fast update to that phone but probably necessary. Wish we had more high end keyboard phones.

"... which, if true, would mean that Verizon could soon start offering a mid-range Android smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard." Isn't that what the Stratosphere line already is? It was always a mid-range phone, like the Moto Droid 2, 3, & 4. Granted the Droids are no longer around, but the Stratosphere line has always been a mid-range keyboard phone.
Aside from that, isn't it a little early to be replacing the Stratosphere 2? That just released last fall, which was 1 year after the original Stratosphere launched. That would mean cutting the release cycle in half. It could be the case but with people locked into 2 year contracts and no way of upgrading early, they're pushing too many phones to customers who can't get them without buying out of contract. At minimum the lifecycles of these phones should be one year, otherwise their EOL (end of life) will be come halfway through the contract. Not good for the customer, unless Verizon plans to upgrade them to the replacement phone if they have issues.

have you been sleep #2, Droids are still around, Droid RAZR, RAZR HD, MAXX, MAXX HD, HTC Incredible, HTC DNA...granted the Moto Droids 1-4 are not as noticeable than when they came out-- mid-range is not what they were when they were released, but speaking of todays specs in 2013 when quad core 1.5 ghz processors, 2 gigs of ram, 8 mp camera and hd screens are the norm I guess you could speculate and say they are mid-range, but when the OG Droid was first released on VW in 2010, it's was high-end and was the one of the first phones to start this Android drive to the top

Whoa, bro. Cam down. He meant (Keyboard) Droid. Yes, if it has a Droid slapped on it its usually not mid-range sans DInc line.

Exactly. The original Droid series, not Incredible, X, Bionic, Razr, Pro, or DNA, hasn't been around since this time last year with the Droid4. Compared to the other Droid offerings it was mid-range, as was the Droid3. The OG Droid was a flagship and the Droid2 was just barely above a mid-range device.
