Verizon Samsung Droid Charge: Set Free April 28th

The Samsung Droid Charge, originally called the Stealth is no doubt ticking the boxes for a large number of you, and today we can confirm its official release date and indication of price plans. Over the last few weeks, here at OSM we have brought you updated news on the handset be it rumors of price, comparisons between other handsets including the Droid Bionic and Motorola Atrix 4G, news of leaked images of the Droid Charge multimedia desktop accessory which was pointing to its imminent release and so on.

The Droid Charge running on Verizon’s fast LTE network and Android 2.2 OS, will officially launch on April 28th for a price of $299 on a 2-year contract or with as Engadget reported, unlimited 4G contract plans starting at $29.99 or $39.99 for a Nationwide Talk plan. OK some may say this is a tad bit on the expensive side but not only will you be getting some pretty fantastic features but the inclusion of “mobile hotspot,” allowing you, the user to connect up to some 10 WiFi enabled devices or 3G with up to 5 devices. In terms of download speeds, the Charge will give 5 to 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps in a 4G coverage area.

If we take a closer look at those all important specs, then we can tell you the Droid Charge will come with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED™ Plus display which in itself will give crisp clear images, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, HTML 5 Web browser, 8GB of internal memory, QWERTY keyboard including Swype, 2 cameras the first a 8MP rear facing with LED flash and 1.3MP front facing, Samsung Media Hub giving accessibility to TV programmes and your favorite movies for rental or to buy. The only downside as we have reported in past articles, is that the Samsung will not include a dual-core processor, something of which many others will benefit from.
