DROID Charge Accessories Arriving in Stores, Multimedia Dock is Go

The Samsung DROID Charge is our next family member whether we are ready for it or not, and with accessories showing up in stores today, an announcement making it official could be here any minute.  As you can see from the shot above, it’ll definitely have a multimedia dock available at launch which we’re hoping takes advantage of its HDMI-out, unlike the HTC Thunderbolt.  I know that many of you were quick to jump on the TBolt, but the screen (Super AMOLED Plus) on this Samsung might be worth at least a few minutes of your time.

Here is our hands-on with the DROID Charge back at CES.

Cheers DL app tipster!

    If you look at the picture closely, it looks like the dock is also providing a spare battery. Nice move Samsung.

    Funny thing is, I’m still on my OG Droid and I’m I’ve been rocking Gingerbread for at least a few weeks now! And these bozos can’t push out an upgrade? For Galaxy S owners, they have to go to some BS website to upgrade their phones manually. Most people aren’t going to do that, or even know about it…

  • http://twitter.com/Chasemanhattan3 Chase Chick

    Year old processor. Old version of Android. Horrid custom skin. Bootloader situation unknown. But worst of all is Samsung’s track record of updating their phones and devices in general. I have a TV that needs a firmware update from them, one they are still selling! Oh, hey, and anyone remember when they put BING all over their Verizon phone?

  • PyroHoltz

    Is it just me or is the name Charge for a product, lame?

    Especially when you say things like, ‘Do you sell Droid Charge chargers?’

    • Tykratz

      or it sounds like it needs to charged all the time …. i think that’s what im going to nickname my thunderbolt because it needs to be on the charger most of the time ha

    • YourMomsTwaht

      How much do you charge for the Charge Chargers? I see some unwanted charges for my Charge that needs to be charged.

  • Mr.Joe

    Actually the phone looks pretty damn decent in that dock.

  • Petersen5

    I think I am one of the few people considering this phone. Samsung has always had great hardware… And with Google trying to get the manufacturers to step it up on updates I will maybe get this phone. Hopefully no locked bootloader :-) Any chance cyanogen would support this phone?

    • Speakeasy

      I agree with you. I don’t understand why people hate this phone so much. It isn’t even out yet. So what if it’s running a year old processor. From the demos the phone looks like it’s running fine for me on that old processor. This phone is packing more of a punch than the Thunderbolt if you ask me. Being that this is a droid branded phone, Samsung may in fact improve on releasing updates.

      • Petersen5

        I am going to get this or the thunderbolt since I live in a 4g area. I need a phone with a lot of roms thats the only thing I worry about. And I see no need for a dual core phone. I have a tablet for gaming.

        • Speakeasy

          I played around with the thunderbolt for a couple of hours and besides enjoying the 4g speeds, there was nothing else that impressed me. In order to enjoy the thunderbolt, you need to downgrade default settings; ie: turn off 4g, lower the screen brightness, etc. Why would I want to purchase something that I can’t run efficently with default settings.

          Samsung charge all the way!

    • Chris

      I’m with you too. I’ll be getting this phone most likely. It’s thin, and light, and supposedly has all day battery life with 4G LTE. I tried the TBolt and between the weight (which I could have lived with) and the poor battery life (which I could not live with), I ended up returning it. I think this phone will be just fine. Plus the fact that they’re already coming with accessories tells me there may be better support for this model Samsung.

      To address the original blog post though, I’m confident that the media dock does not support HDMI since that is on the top right of the phone and the phone from the pictures appears to dock from the bottom left Micro USB port, which I don’t believe supports HDMI. But then again, I could be wrong.

      • Peasorama

        Just purchased the Droid Charge when switching from AT&T to Verizon (along with moving from the Tampa Bay area in Florida where AT&T ruled to Orange County, CA where I dropped every call). I also converted from iPhone to Droid and couldn’t be happier…with the exception of battery life.  This phone does everything I could want from an iPhone and more except for the battery.  I’ve had to buy additional chargers to make sure I’m plugged in and fully charged before hitting the road on a site inspection or day excursion. Otherwise, LOVE IT!

    “but the screen (Super AMOLED Plus) on this Samsung might be worth at least a few minutes of your time.”

    And those few minutes is how long this will be relevant to Samsung, before they forget about it and stop upgrading it because they are on to their next device.

    A Hummingbird processor which is yesterday’s news (to be polite), and do you really think this thing will EVER see Gingerbread? I’m sure Samsung will say that it will get it… eventually, but of course just ask Galaxy S users how their Froyo is doing.

  • WormDoes

    Great, glad they pushed out a dock so quickly for a phone that no one cares about. Now where’s the dock for Verizon’s best selling phone at the moment, the Thunderbolt???

    • Anonymous

      Hopefully they arent going the DINC route regarding the dock…….

    • Chris Meunier

      They have a media dock for the TBolt. I saw it in the store.

    Is it just me or is the droid line up slacking? I mean the last droids were the D2, the R2D2, the D2G, and then the DP… seems to be going downhill.

    Personally I would have like to have seen the thunderbolt or the LG 4G phone get the branding.

    • Anonymous

      Wow, 4got that the pro even existed…..actually took a few secs 2 realize what “dp” was

  • Anonymous

    Today I really dont care about Verizon… they got me pissed off by removing the 1 year contract… WTF!~

  • D.B.Evans

    Nope, it’s a Samsung. My wife and I have each had bad experiences with different models of their phones. I would love that gorgeous screen, and have no problem with Samsung components in phones … but never again will I buy a phone by Samsung.

  • YourMomsTwaht

    Another yawn…. What’s with the stories on here lately? Lame.

    • WhizCaLeafAhhh

      There’s no hypebeastin’ on the Bionic yet… wait for it…

    • DroidzFX

      Your name is lame. How old are you? 13?

      • YourMomsTwaht

        No what my name says is lame, but true, go fix it boy.

        • DroidzFX

          Age….13……Check

          so you want me to fix YourMomsTwaht? Well since you asked.

  • D-roids

    So I wonder if them putting “droid” in front of their phone name means in any way they’ll update their phones. Personally I’m skeptical…….

      Except for a good Front Facing Camera.

      • WhizCaLeafAhhh

        No one uses that shit bro, for real

      • jason w.s.

        I donno bro, i used to think the same thing, but now that i have one ive found myself using it. It can come in handy. From here on out, it definitely should be the norm on all devices.

        • WhizCaLeafAhhh

          No one uses that shit in or outside of a club, at work, or on the drive to and from work… if people use it they at home, and you can just use a laptop for that…

      Locked bootloader, bloat to the hilt, unrootable. Yeah, everything…..

    Samsung has GREAT hardware the quality of phone(screen& camera). BUT they fall WAY BEHIND on updates and software.
