If virtual keyboards aren’t your thing, you’re in luck – the Samsung Stratosphere has officially landed. This Verizon wireless Android device touts 4G speeds and a physical keyboard, making it rather unique – there are only a few 4G phones available with a physical keyboard at this time. The stratosphere is available now for $199 on contract. Read on for the specs…

Tech Specs:

  • 1Ghz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor
  • 4” Super AMOLED display
  • 5-megapixel rear camera; 1.3-megapixel front camera
  • 4G LTE capability
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 5-row physical QWERTY keyboard

If you’re looking to sync the Samsung Stratosphere with Outlook, ACT!, Salesforce.com, or any number of other CRM applications, we’ve got you covered. Using CompanionLink and DejaOffice for Android you’re able to sync contacts, calendars, tasks, memos, and more.

The Sidekick 4G: Now With More Android!

Historically, the Sidekick was always a fairly popular phone. Of course, since the Danger debacle and recent shutdown notice, we’ve seen this popularity fade away to some degree. Don’t expect the slump to last, however. The Sidekick is back and it features some solid specs, including 4G data.

The biggest news, however, is that the Sidekick 4G will be running Android. This opens the door for a lot of potential. Business users who want to move away from BlackBerries, but still want a solid physical keyboard will want to take a look at the Sidekick and its great keyboard design. Those who know a little about the previous Sidekicks might balk at this suggestion, claiming that the Sidekick is not designed to be a business device. Admittedly, it is marketed more towards a younger crowd. However, the Sidekick 4G features a few nice additions, such as WiFi calling and “cloud-based” texting that serve to extend the phone’s functionality and maximize productivity when you’re away from cell signal or at the computer. And, of course, after downloading a few business-focused Android apps, like DejaOffice, the Sidekick can be just as productive as any other Android available today!
