Remember the Samsung 4G LTE smartphone that wasfor Verizon Wireless? Well, it's finally got a new name (thank goodness) and a release date and pricing.
Verizon Wireless revealed today that the Samsung Droid Charge will be available on April 28 for--brace yourselves--$299.99 with a two-year contract. The 4G-capable Droid Charge will ship running Android 2.2 and features a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, mobile hot-spot capabilities, and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touch screen, which has 50 percent more subpixels than the original Super AMOLED touch screens (read: improved outdoor visibility and more clarity).
In addition, the smartphone has an HTML5 Web browser, an 8-megapixel camera, and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. Hopefully, we'll also see better battery life on the Droid Charge than on the HTC ThunderBolt. I don't know about you, but the eye-popping price sure does make me pause. What do you guys think?
