    Today is the big day for the Droid Charge, but some say due to the 4G outage most areas of high use are experiencing, it might not be anymore. Engadget this morning reported that the Droid Charge might not see the black and red shelves today as planned. This is because half the LTE network has been down since yesterday, and it’s a little hard selling a new device without the main future being available for use. With that said, there isn’t any official statements from Verizon yet as they try to restore their network, so all we can do at this point is check at the store to see if anyone is selling the new Samsung phone, if not available, then hopefully it will be soon.

    It's not listed as an available upgrade for me, but the TB and the Dinc2 are.

    Its not listed for me either. I remember the Droid X showing up after 12 am, like the iPhone and probably some other recent Verizon phones.

    They have delayed the launch due to the network having issues.

    Take it for what it is but I called my local Verizon Wireless retail store (not a corporate store) and the guy I talked with said that they'd be getting them in today and will have them available tomorrow.

    His exact words were " No not today the release got pushed back to tomorrow and we will have them available for you then"

    Wish I could provide proof aside from my word but thats all I have got for you.:)

    Crazy day! How about the Dinc2 launching with zero fanfare?
