The Samsung Stratosphere will debut for $149.99 on a two-year contract after a $50 mail-in-rebate which isn't all that hot considering the specs - unless you are dying for 4G LTE speed and you simply can't live without a physical keyboard.
Still, we would expect retailers like Amazon to offer the device for much, much less within a few weeks of the release - so you might be able to strike a major deal if you're patient.
