Samsung Can’t Stop Talking About the DROID Charge Today, Finally Releasing Tomorrow?

If you follow @SamsungMobileUS, then you probably noticed that they can’t stop talking about the DROID Charge today.  In fact, over the last 16 hours, they’ve sent out almost 30 tweets having to do with this yet-to-be-released 4G LTE phone from Verizon.  The odd thing is, after we first reported that the device would be delayed from its April 28 launch date, we’re still sitting here without a hint as to when the phone is actually coming out.  And we still haven’t been given a reason as to why it was delayed, but have a pretty good idea that it has to do with signal issues and not the major outage that went down last week.

But with all of this talk from Samsung, we’re starting to wonder if tomorrow won’t be the day.  After hearing word from one of our most reliable sources that Verizon is currently scheduled to release the DROIDX2 and LG Revolution next Thursday, I can’t imagine that they would push this device out any further.  Hopefully we hear something by the end of the day.  

Oh, and here is a device overview from Sammie that we had yet to post:

    The Samsung Droid Charge has been in stock in verizon wireless stores since tues wed of last week all the accessories and devices have been sitting on the shelves not opened for no apparent reason…. Go figure, could coincide with HTC software delay.

    Waiting for next week to see the DX2 to compare the qHD display vs the Super AMOLED+, 4G is great but what good is it if your device can’t keep up.

    “Never get lost with VZ Navigator!!”

    What he meant to say is…

    “Get completely lost with VZ Navigator!”

    “All powered by a 1GHZ processor!”

    What he meant to say is..

    “All powered by a last-year processor!”

    I work at a target in ga that has a mobile solutions in the store run by radio shack. They had the display Charge last wednesday, put it up thursday, and then sold the one they had in stock on Friday I believe. They told me their verizon rep that was in store on wednesday didnt say anything about delaying the launch…

    I honestly dont understand the releasing of all these devices

    March-thunderbolt
    April–Incredible 2, Casio G’zone
    May-Charge….and probably Droid X2, Xperia play, and revolution
    Which means the refresh Bionic will be out June

    It just seems that this would be totally confusing for their customers and a lot of these devices really are not going to get a chance to stand out.

    but i guess from VZW, a bunch of random ass devices will pull in subscribers. Still think it’s dumb to release so many devices so close together

      i’ll be shocked if we see a “bionic” by then…or any dual core lte phone.

      vzw, please shock me.

    What about the Galaxy S II? When?

  • jd

    Very smart naming there samsung. Now when you google this crap you read reviews of all other company’s charging problems.

      Next will be Samsung ‘Phone’ it’s the only phone you will ever need.

  • Zach

    Samsung Fascinate 4G…….. that’s basically all it is, a bigger sized fascinate with 4G, Verizon is starting to tarnish the “Droid” line by releasing these non high end smartphones.

  • YourMomsLooseTwaht

    Sam-never going to see an update as long as you live-Sung

  • JJ

    Nice Screen… That is only thing about this phone you can say is nice.

    I can’t help but wonder why Big Red is getting the short end of the stick with every manufacturer except Moto?

    Sensation>Thunderbolt
    GSII>Charge
    G2X>Revolution

    • YourMomsLooseTwaht

        He could be serious there are people all over saying how Target,Radio shack and Best buy had been selling them.

      • Moondrius

        I don’t because I am posting from it now.

    Have my TBolt and love it. Battery could be better. Was thinking about getting this and giving my other half the tbolt. But will probably wait till next year. #1 to see how Sammy manages updates and #2 to see what HTC will drop next for LTE. Will go back to MOTO if they offer an unlockable/relockable bootloader option as they do with the XOOr

    No way it comes tomorrow. Way too late today for a press release.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LEP2PO6BC524BBC4K5CRPFOJFY josh

      Verizon probably wont do a press release for it. Itll probably just be released and announced on Twitter,Facebook and all the other socila medias

    No one cares about this phone. lol Tell us about the newest Moto 4G device release date already…

    • Sob157

      This phone was pummeled in benchmarks against other recently released handsets… Moto, you better come correct and throw out a true follow up to the OG droid. Innovate and Decimate the mobile handset market (for the next two months till something better comes out)

    First? And it’s about time.
