Samsung Stratosphere hits the FCC, shows dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
Now that the device has been posted to the FCC site, we've found something interesting. According to the RF Testing reports and an image of the antenna locations, the Samsung Stratosphere will support dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. For those of you not familiar with dual-band Wi-Fi, it means that the device can connect to older 2.4GHz wireless routers (b/g/n), but also supports newer 5GHz routers (a). The advantage is that the 5GHz bandwidth has a lot less congestion, so it can make for a better Wi-Fi connection.

Soo 2GB storage, 1.3MP front cam, and 5MP main? Are this is the "Galaxy SII" equivalent for Verizon? Wait, I thought they said this thing was supposed to compete with the iFin 5

get your facts straight before you come in here all smug and sarcastic. there was never any real evidence of this being anything more than what it is. the speculation about this being a Galaxy S II variant got way out of hand and there was no REAL evidence to support it.

Verizon iss getting the Droid Prime instead this is supposed to be midrange. They probably want the droid bionic to have good sales and compete

It's also a solid upgrade for people like me slogging along with qwerty dumbphones like the Samsung Rogue and enV Touch. I daresay it even looks like a Rogue on steroids.
