    The name is good. It could be the name for the Samsung/Verizon slider we saw a month ago.

    Do you mean the Epic4g for Verizon? If so then it could be the Epic2 . I wouldn't think they would want a year old phone. That would be cool. Still keeping the physical keyboard alive lol

    That's precisely what Verizon does. Take a year old phone, slap their name on it and call it new. A la thunderbolt and x2

    I echo the epic slider, hopefully it would get a spec bump but who knows. Like the name though!

    Could be the final SGSII name. Stratosphere is way sexier than Function.

    Could be any number of things, really. But will be interesting to find out reguardless

    The name is cheesy enough to belong to that Sammy slider. Carriers sure do have a knack for giving their phones ridiculous names.

    The phone is listed as being 4G. The only other 4G devices listed in VZW's database currently is the Charge, mobile hotspot, and tablets.

    I'm thinking that this phone could be the SGSII under a different name - currently there's no other record of the "Function" or any trace of related SGSII model numbers, and again, no other 4G devices listed. The Bionic was loaded into the system back in February, even though it's been delayed, so with potential launches of the SGSII in August/Sept (and I stress "potential" - Samsung said a US launch was likely in August but never confirmed carrier or specifics) I am somewhat surprised that there isn't a listing for the Function.

    Stratosphere IS a more "grand" sounding name than function. I hope you're right as it's definetly a name that fits a high end device like galaxy s ii

    A bit ignorant to say those are the same phone. Thunderbolt had next gen proc, newer screen, more memory, etc.

    We can't decide about the features and outlook of the device until we received the Gadget. From the news I've came to know that it probably won't launch in August.

    The new Samalangadingdong!

    I agree, the folks in Marketing need to get a little more imaginative. Either that, or it's a case of executive managers choosing the names (and shoving them the line down as writ).
