    Is the Samsung Stratosphere the new SG II?

    Above in the Droid Forum news section is a leaked Verizon schedule that shows the Samsung Stratosphere 4G phone coming out September 8 along with the Bionic.
    So, what do you all think? Is the Stratosphere (originally named Aegis) the new SG II on Verizon?
    Do we need to change the name of this section?
    What happened to the Function?
    Regardless, it is a new Samsung 4G phone!

    I wager VZW or Samsung realized the GS2 needs to compete with the Bionic and, moreover, the iPhone 5. So they canceled the 3G version (Function) and crammed a LTE radio in. Or perhaps there will be both 3G Function and a 4G Stratosphere variants simultaneously.

    As long as it's not a slider, I'll be all over it the morning of September 8th...

    Why? Sliders are much more useful.

    We'll agree to disagree on that one

    I've had a slider for nearly 2 years now (OG Droid) and the ONLY thing I use it for is to press the "X" key to go into recovery. It's dead weight to me. I'm glad you prefer a physical QWERTY, and I hope the SGS2 comes out in a slider version for you. But I don't think I'm alone when I say "Bring on a straight-up SGS2!"

    Well ok. Who knows, maybe they will have a slider and nonslide version of it.

    That'd be pretty sick.

    I'll take either one, although for excessive texting, the slider works better for me. I just hope that if it is slider, that they don't just rebadge and dual core the epic. I thought that phone was a little boring back when it was released (and yes I realize that has nothing to do with its funtioning). I really like the feel and style of the D3.

    I agree, the D3 is a solid phone.

    So I guess the Stratosphere could be the Epic, or the GS2 in Verizon trim.

    I'm with you. I really hope they don't put a keyboard on it. I never used my D1 keyboard. I learned the touch screen and I am so much faster with it, less bulk too. Please give us the straight gs2
