Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II, the Android-based QWERTY handset that Verizon added to its 4G LTE lineup only recently, is now available for purchase through Amazon Wireless at only $0.01.Users interested in taking advantage of the deal will still have to commit to a two-year contract agreement with the wireless carrier.
However, it should be noted that the online retailer has the smartphone on backorder at the moment, yet it promises shipments in one to two weeks.
The deal still sounds like a good one, since Galaxy Stratosphere II has a lot to offer to its users in terms of features and performance capabilities.
The smartphone was launched with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display on the front, as well as with a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard beneath it, for increased options when it comes to input.
Furthermore, Samsung packed the mobile phone with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor inside, as well as with 8GB of internal memory, and with a microSD memory card slot to expand it by up to 32GB.
The handset also sports a 5-megapixel photo snapper with LED Flash on the back, capable of recording videos in 720p HD resolution, as well as a front camera for making video calls while on the go.
The 4G LTE connectivity the device offers is complemented by support for 3G networks, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, built-in GPS receiver, Near Field Communication (NFC), Wi-Fi Hotspot, and the like.
Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II is running under Google’s Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, providing users with features such as Face unlock, Data usage, Gmail, Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Latitude, Google Maps, YouTube, and more.
The smartphone also sports multitasking capabilities, as well as home screen folders: “Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders - just drag one app onto another to create a folder,” Amazon notes.
