Since the demo units started arriving in stores last week, it’s only a matter of time that we will see the actual Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II on display and ready for sale. Samsung and Verizon just released a presser stating that it will be available in the coming weeks and it will be priced at $129 after a $50 mail-in-rebate. The original Stratosphere wasn’t a bad device for the money and the second chapter steps it up a bit with the Snapdragon S4 and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. I would say if you’re looking for a budget phone on Verizon, the DROID RAZR M is the best bet, but if a QWERTY slide-out is your thing, then this just might be the phone for you.
