Samsung Stratosphere priced at $79 at Staples

Samsung Stratosphere priced at $79 at Staples
Earlier this week Verizon officially announced that the Samsung Stratosphere would be launched by them on Thursday October 13th and would carry a 2-year contract price of $149.99. Now if you're looking for a real deal, one tipster sent us an image showing that Staples will be offering the Stratosphere for a low price of $79.99 with 2-year contract; a $70 savings over Verizon.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Samsung Stratosphere, it will be the first Android-based smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard to run on Verizon's 4G LTE data network. Features will include a 4" Super AMOLED WVGA display, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5MP rear camera & 1.3MP front camera, 480p video recording, Bluetooth 3.0 and will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The Stratosphere will also be the first Verizon smartphone to support dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n at 5GHz and 2.4GHz.

Thanks to our tipster!

Good deal but I walked pass a Radioshack yesterday and they are still advertising the 100 dollar off Verizon smartphone deal.

I really like this handset. For this price getting lte and a keyboard is really cool. If the battery life is good it should be a major hit.

Only for the past few months. Smart move as business folks move away from company-issued Blackberries and start using their own smartphones. And while it's not specced for power users, the Stratosphere is probably the best example of a business-ready Android.
