samsung-stratosphere

We reported that the Samsung Stratosphere 2 was heading to Verizon back in August, yet it wasn’t until a week ago that pictures of the phone – complete with the carrier’s branding – surfaced online. Most recently, the Stratosphere 2 was featured on several promotional flyers, namely BJ’s, Radio Shack’s, and Walmart’s – all indicating that it’s ready to get some love from buyers. To top it off, dummy units of the phone have now arrived in stores.

Kyocera Rise

One of Kyocera’s most decent offerings in a while “rose” right on cue at Sprint, and, also on schedule, the phone is now available through Virgin Mobile. The Rise is this time around up for grabs for a slightly higher price, but you’ll be glad to know you don’t have to sign up any kind of contract up front to be able to buy it.
