Costco says Samsung DROID Charge will not launch today; Walmart leaks its price
As we reported, signs pointed to a launch of Verizon's second LTE enabled phone sometime this week. Now, a leaked screenshot for internal use at Costco screams that the DROID Charge will NOT launch Nationwide on Tuesday, hinting at further problems. The Samsung DROID Charge was originally expected to launch on April 28th until Verizon's LTE network went out on that day. Some speculated that the handset's delay was related to the outage and that the phone would be offered once Big Red's pipelines came back up. Even though the carrier's 4G service was back up by the next day, the DROID Charge has remained on store shelves, collecting dust. Now it seems we have a new delay and Costco says it will provide another update Tuesday on what is turning out to be an interesting story in light of the already canceled Motorola Etna (aka DROID Bionic) on Verizon.

Verizon over charges for phones. It is border line unethical.

"Leaked"?!!! The phone was prominently displayed in the Walmart Sunday newspaper insert. And it's $298.88, not $288.88.

If you can't handle the price then go back to a flip phone and quit complaining.
