    It's easy to get buried in all the excitement and hype surrounding the big flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. But we can't forget that not everyone needs or wants the most expensive and most powerful phone available. Verizon is reminding us that they have consumers beyond just the hard-core too, by announcing their new low-to-mid-range device, "The Samsung Illusion." The phone will be coming out at Verizon stores tomorrow, November 23, 2011, for only $79.99 on a new contract. It will then be available at third party retailers in January. Here are the specs and the press release:
    • Android 2.3/Gingerbread
    • 1GHz CPU
    • 3.5-inch HVGA display
    • 2GB microSD card
    • 3-megapixel camera
    • Wi-Fi &Bluetooth 3.0, 3G connectivity

    What a P.O.S. I feel sorry for the uneducated suckers that purchase this second rate device.

    Edit: But hey, at least they didn't Bing it! Basically an even crappier Stratosphere...
