Samsung and Verizon today announced the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II. Like the original, the new model is notable for its slide-out QWERTY keyboard, combined with Android OS and 4G LTE data. Compared to its predecessor, the new model has a faster processor and adds NFC. It also comes with Android version 4.0. Like most of its new Android phones, Samsung has added "Galaxy" to the name. The Galaxy Stratosphere II will be available "in the coming weeks" for $180 with two-year contract, or $130 after $50 mail-in rebate.

Near Field Communication. I know basically what it does but someone can probably explain it better than me. Basically, no, it has nothing to do with that battery saving tech.
It's an extremely short-range wireless technology. Short-range as in one inch. So the basic idea is that you tap the phone against something to communicate data, such as making a payment.

What are the chances that this will get the Jellybean update???
Anybody have any idea if the Stratosphere II will have the same S Voice capabilities that the S3 has? That would be cool!
What about RAM, at least 1GB of RAM?
Probably not the same 2GB's of RAM that the S3 has.
