Verizon Customers have been anxiously waiting for the release of the Droid Charge, which was supposed to be released on April 28th. The delay was caused by an LTE outage on April 27th and Verizon gave no expected date of return until today.
Verizon has confirmed that the phone will be released tomorrow in stores and tonight online. The Droid Charge is pretty standard with hardware and software running on Android 2.2 via a 1GHz single-core Hummingbird processor. What sets the Droid Charge apart from the rest is the 4G LTE it runs on and the Gorilla Glass screen it has.
The Droid Charge also pre-loaded with the Mobile Hotspot app that allows the user to create a hotspot with blazing fast speeds that up to five other devices can connect to and it is included for free for a limited time. The downfall of the Charge is the standard hardware/software and the expensive price of $300 on a two year new contract. Its upside is the fact that it has LTE, Gorilla Glass, and better battery life than the HTC Thunderbolt. If you can’t bear waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Charge is a viable choice despite the expensive price.
Update: You can also get the Droid Charge on Amazon right now for $249.99.
