DROID Charge Hits Walmart Site, Still Coming Tomorrow?

The DROID Charge has appeared over at Walmart’s cell phone shop, but when will it be released?  We had word that it would be here tomorrow, although a lack of a press release still has us questioning that.  No dirty secrets have been revealed on this placeholder page, so we’ll just be keeping an eye out for that word out of Verizon with hopes that it’ll be here any day.

Oh, and there is that beautiful DROID red eye again.  Neat.

    The Press release for the SGS2 stated that it was the first SAMOLED+ phone, so I wouldn’t expect this till after May 1st.

    I don’t see it on the site. How can I find it?

    Looks cheap and what’s the point of this phone anyway?

    Rather get the Bionic.

    Ok guys, I’m fustrated. I have a crappy Storm 2 (Second one by the way) and have been saving my upgrade for a 4G phone. I really want the Bionic but Big Red has been keeping everyone in limbo. I can’t BB any more and I don’t know what to choose. The Charge and the Thunderbolt seems nice but I know nothing about the Charge. Any advice???

    I’m curious about the quality of the speakerphone and camera, battery life a little too, as well as when/if it will have Gingerbread. No real reviews that I could find other than people standing at the booth @ CES.

    I got the chance to use one yesterday at a Verizon Conference, it is a very nice phone. It runs froyo and has a new beach live wallpaper that is pretty sweet. What im getting to though is that the Samsung reps told me that the phone should drop on the 20th or 28th.

      did the buttons feel cheap?

      • Devin Rs42

        No they did not, they are textured just like the keys on the LG Ally, i like the actual keys much better than the touch screen ones.

    Wal-Marts logo is a friggin’ a**hole! Everytime I see it, I’m stunned someone okayed it for a logo. Don’t believe me? Google ‘Vonnegut a**hole’ and check the Images tab. It’s a thing of beauty.
    Anyways, sorry. This has nothing to do with Droid I know, but I must share the hilariousness.

    Cool phone, but the Galaxy S2 will be released in less than a month. I doubt Verizon will be getting it any time soom. Aside from the LET and SamuledPlus, this isn’t much of an upgrade from a Fascinate. It is a Droid though, so it should mean more updates.

  • speakeasy

    Since it’s a droid branded samsung device, I think Samsung may get their act together. However, If they don’t get their act together with the updates, then I think they will lose a lot of support. I think this is the main reason why a lot of people don’t like this phone, besides the design is the lack of software updates.

    II’m a fan of the Droid label. I want it. Five lines active . One more to add to an impressive line up Thunderbolt, Droid x rooted , r2d2 rooted stock , Droid rooted ,and Samsung a950. Guess which ones going ?

      You’re kidding, right?

        Beauty is in the ‘Eye’ of the beholder. I like the chrome accents which create a classy look, similiar to the BB 9600 i’m carrying. Battery life on that nice display and entry price will be the key now that VZW is selling the Tbolt for 199.00. I ordered the Tbolt and sent it back so I could look at this one. Price may cause me to reorder the Bolt. They will need to include the 32G card too if they want it to compete.

    I can’t wait to get that red eye bootanimation on my OG Droid!

  • Anonymous

    Pretty much every manufacturer has had a “Droid” branded phone. So what kind of criteria is there for being a DROID?

    Since the D1 I thought Droid meant locked bootloaders, but now with Samsung it will mean “No, or Slow updates”… LOL

    Drooiiid!

      We thought it meant that the phone was elite…

        Yes, but now that’s been shot all to heck.

    Meh….. what’s it running? Cupcake?

    First. I kinda want one. IMO, looks better than all the other LTE devices. Plus, the new SAMOLED+ should be HOTTTTT!!!

      Yea, no software support and that fugly Touchwiz interface make me want one… not.

      • http://twitter.com/wynalazca Andrew Webber

        Step 1: Root. Step 2: Install LauncherPro. Step 3: ???? Step 4: Profit.

        Touchwiz in not a factor. No software support… leave that to the hackers. I’ve been running Froyo on my Fascinate for months. The software support is a verizon issue, not a samsung issue. Why deny yourself of the best hardware out there?
