Maybe it’s the “DROID” tag that has been attached to it, otherwise, I can’t figure out how Samsung or Verizon can justify a $300 price tag for this phone. Sure, the DROID Charge has a beautiful 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus screen, but it’s still running Android 2.2 and TouchWiz with a single-core processor. It also doesn’t appear to be launching with the 32GB SD card or even close to the 768MB of RAM that the Thunderbolt has. I keep expecting there to be a surprise announcement about it having a dual-core or something, but so far haven’t heard a thing. This has to be coming down at final launch, right? Our MAP’d pricing list sure isn’t suggesting so though.
Oh, and all signs are pointing to April 28th for this device to be released. If I were a betting man, I’d peg the Incredible 2 for next Thursday, with the Charge jumping in right behind it the following week.
