Samsung and Verizon Tap Droid Charge with April 28 Launch, $299.99 Price Tag

Verizon and Samsung have issued a press release today, confirming the next handset in the Droid series.  The $299.99 (ouch!) Droid Charge arrives a week from today, April 28th, and features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera, and front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera. The processor might be single core (1GHz) but the Android 2.2-powered Droid Charge is on a short list of devices that offer support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Read the full press release here, if that’s your sort of thing.

Also, Samsung is offering up a free $25 Media Hub movie credit with purchase of a Droid Charge, which is good for movie rentals or purchases. Additional details can be found at

Verizon is also relaunching the @droidlanding twitter account, offering up Droid Charges across 16 different in the United States.  You’re still following them, aren’t you?

  • Can’t help but wonder if this is dead on arrival. Maybe some uninformed customers will be willing to pay such a high premium for outdated specs if they are wooed by 4G? I guess the Thunderbolt did ok as far as consumer appeal. I know I won’t be recommending the Droid Charge to anyone in my tech circle.

  • Thanks for interesting post.

  • Looks REALLY ugly, and is way too expensive.

    My Samsung SCH-U470 turns of off every time you set it down, jostle it, or tap it on the back. The amount of battery also changes every time it shuts off.
