RadioShack’s Black Friday Newspaper Ad Shows Up – Stratosphere 2, Galaxy S3, and One X on the Cheap

In a little over two weeks, Black Friday will be upon us. Over the last couple of years, we have seen this day become flooded with deals on the latest and greatest in Android products, something that likely won’t change this year. In fact, RadioShack’s ad has already been posted for the world to see, and as expected, includes a number of Android smartphones at rock bottom prices. 

The most interesting of the bunch may be the Samsung Stratosphere 2, which has yet to receive an announcement or launch date publicly from Verizon. We have covered it plenty, but here we are two weeks out from Black Friday without an official statement. If RadioShack is expecting to sell it for free, giving you a $100 savings, the phone will likely debut at $99 on 2-year contract. We should point out that this is the only device with a physical slideout keyboard on Big Red that we have heard of in months.

Along with the Stratosphere 2, you’ll find the Galaxy S3 on Sprint and AT&T for $49 on new lines or $99 as an upgrade. The HTC One X and Galaxy S2 will be free, plus you will also receive a $10 coupon for every $50 you spend at The Shack.

We’ll do our best to bring you all of the hottest Black Friday deals.

    At least its opening time is decent.

    I wish someone would have a off contract phone deal

  • Charles Hobbs

    I’d like to see the specs on that 10″ tablet for $149…

    • TylerChappell

      I’m going to take a guess and assume it is probably a dual-core 1-1.4GHz CPU or a 1.5GHz single-core CPU with 512mb-1GB of RAM and a crappy 1024×600 TN display with mediocre battery life.

    Does any1 ever notice verizon shafts people with no good deals on the good phones, while every1 else pretty much gives em away….

  • duke69111

    I’m amazed at how the SII is still hanging around. Must be a decent phone.

    • Droidzilla

      It’s like a vamped up iPhone 4S (similar tech generation, better in almost all regards), and that thing still sells.

          The list of tablets / smartphone deals for Radioshack is petite compared to last year. That’s why it’s advisable to visit Amazon’s penny-pincher sale which will be launched a few days before Thanksgiving…

  • Kudos to Radio Shack for staying alive in this day and age of the internet. They’re doing what they need to do in order to not go the way of Circuit City.

      Try actually shopping there and come back here and saying that…. shopping at RS blows

      • i still just think of them for random audio cable connectors, so this is a step up at least!

    • Butters619

      I will never shop at radio shack again. They aren’t very helpful and will look for any little thing to deny you an exchange.

    That’s a Galaxy S2 in the pic, not S3.

    • OreoMan
