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 Maybe some uninformed customers will be willing to pay such a high premium for outdated specs if they are wooed by 4G?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.

    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.
