Verizon has used the Droid line of Android phones to expand its customer base, and is continuing the trend with the launch of the Droid Charge. The Charge brings several firsts in the form of a thin smartphone. It is the first phone produced by Samsung for the Verizon Droid line of handsets. It is the first handset for Samsung to sport a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Even though the Charge follows the popular HTC Thunderbolt also running Android, Verizon is touting the Charge as the first Droid phone sporting 4G (LTE) connectivity.
The Droid Charge will be available in Verizon stores on April 28th. The superphone adds an 8MP camera to the 4G connectivity and large screen. It will cost $299 for purchase with a two-year contract with Verizon that requires a 4G data plan. I have one of these bad boys on the way and will give you a good look at the Droid Charge with LTE.
