Couple of quotes for those that don't want to read the linked thread. I would recommend reading it though because it isn't all bad. There are actually some pretty cool things in there.
"Where to begin? 3G connection issues, a plasticky build, slow display wake, a buggy and sluggish UI overlay, tons of sponsored bloatware, and an outdated version of Android (FYI: Froyo will be turning 1 year old pretty soon). Taken together, these flaws should make any reasonable person think twice about taking a 2-year plunge with the $300 Charge."
"What Verizon and Samsung have done is built a phone (out of plastic) with the aesthetic qualities of a fine Italian sports car, and then proceeded to stuff an old, angry 800-pound bloatware/software overlay gorilla in the trunk, and weld it shut. The result? It’s unpredictable, annoying, slows the phone down, and there’s not much you can do about it – except try and ignore it. Which, I might add, is nearly impossible."
Here is probably the most potent statement in this review.
"The DROID Charge has a few things going for it; namely, a great screen, a great network, and a pretty good rear-facing camera. Unfortunately, the Charge also has a lot of things working against it – TouchWiz, an old version of Android, buggy software, bloatware, connectivity issues, plastic, and most importantly: an absolutely absurd $300 price tag. For $100, I’d say the Charge was a decent phone. But at a flagship price, it gets judged like a flagship device, and that’s a standard the Charge, frankly, doesn’t live up to."
There is however a ton of information as well as pic's of the phone and from the phone. Overall it looks fairly good....not $300 worth of good, but good none the less. This is now the second thread I have started relating this phone. Different reviews so I thought I would share this as well.
Here is the most recent review that the above quotes were taken from which also includes several pic's and quite a bit of info.

Droid Charge not realling.....impressive?
So....with all that being said.....who all is pre-ordering one?
