Samsung Droid Charge name confirmed; coming soon to Verizon's 4G lineup

Samsung Droid Charge name confirmed; coming soon to Verizon's 4G lineup
Two weeks ago, we shed some light on Samsung's yet unnamed “4G LTE smartphone for Verizon” by sharing some photos of a leaked unit with you. Back then, it was not really sure what name the Android-powered smartphone was going to bear. Stealth or Stealth V were two probable options, and honestly would have sounded pretty cool, but a tipster of ours later suggested that Samsung's LTE smartphone was very likely to hit Verizon's shelves as the Samsung Droid Charge. At that time we had no way of saying whether the claim was authentic or not, but a recently leaked photo from Verizon's database seems to confirm the tipster's words.

Unfortunately, we are still unaware how much the Droid Charge is going to retail for when it becomes available. No release date for the smartphone has been announced yet either, but we will be keeping you updated so stay tuned.

every phone Samsung has release is 2.1. Go look at all the carrier's. 2.1......No flash on that big 4.3, Super LED, LCD, 4G screen.

Stupid name. Not like Stealth was any better. Why not the Droid Saber (as in lightsaber), or Droid Speeder, or Droid Galaxy, or something else "Lucas" themed.

The specs that are listed on this site indicate it will be running 2.2, not 2.1. I can't believe any new technology phone would be released with anything less than Froyo.

Personally, I think verizon is lacking right now compared to all the other phones coming out. I mean sure they have 4 lte phones that'll all be out soon but they're all virtually the same with just minor differences. And I hate how they're all huge!

Should I return my Thunderbolt for this? Battery life not great, but gets me through the day if I turn off 4G. Also, don't like the ~ 6 oz weight of the Thunderbolt. I like the very light ~ 4 oz feel of the Samsung phones.

charge!!! maybe because they are going to charge an arm and a leg for it lol. good to see its not going to mandate bing. the search widgit is always better when it uses google. this phone will be better than the thunderbolt seeing as it will have a better screen. yet, the bionic is the phone to get. its a 4g attrix! everyone talks about how the memory is better on the attrix therefore its a better phone. first, anything on att cant be a better phone than whats on verizon... especially when the attrix isnt lte 4g. second, stop looking at the numbers... the attrix barley has more memory.... just get an additional memory card if need be which you wont need. lastly, and this is totally oppinion but i think motorola makes the best droids.

I agree about the Bionic being the phone to beat, although I sure wish VZW was getting a sister phone of the new Evo 3D. What a beast! However, I believe the complaints regarding memory on the Bionic vs the Atrix is for RAM, not storage. The Bionic is rumored to have 512 RAM, whereas the Atrix has double that. Still, not a big deal for me.
