Although its rumored release date of April 7th has come and gone, we’re still expecting Verizon’s LTE-capable Samsung Droid Charge to see a release before the end of the month, and its appearance at Walmart likely means that we’re only a few days from a general rollout. At a rumored $300 on contract, Charge would be one of the more expensive handsets on the market, although that price should quickly plummet thanks to competing third-party retailers.
With a four-inch, WVGA Super AMOLED display and 1GHz processor, the Droid Charge offers a fairly attractive feature set, although its 4G data speeds are clearly the main draw. Charge will be Verizon’s second 4G handset to hit retail, following the HTC Thunderbolt. Still poised for release from the initial crop of four LTE phones are the LG Revolution and Motorola Droid Bionic.
