    Recently, we posted the rumor that the Droid Charge would get an April 28th release date, and it turned out to be 'dead-on'. Below is the official press release from Verizon detailing the April 28th Launch date of the LTE superphone, and a Scavenger Hunt contest for it, beginning April 21. Here's the press release:

    Does this phone have a locked bootloader? Can it be broken? It is everything I want in a phone, but I hate Samsung's UI more than Blur.

    I believe they have already released the source code for the charge which IMO is a very good sign

    You have just been post-pwned.

    I really thought the $299 price tag was a joke. Come on now who would pay that much for this phone?????? I sure wouldn't. Hmmmmm I wonder how long it will take them to lower the price of this device. People brought the $249 TB because they were loyal to HTC, loved sense and timely upgrades, but $299 for a phone that has a horrible rep for updating has the nerve to ask that much for a single core phone that will probably have horrible battery life, come on now.

    $299 does seem like a lot, but it is Samsung. Im sure the price will drop in a month or so to $199 if not less when the DInc 2 comes out.

    $300 for a device that's pretty much identical to TBolt? And it's only 2.2?

    I'll take a pass.

    I like Samsung, but this phone will not sell well. It will drop in price soon, as sales plummet for this device. It doesn't really offer much, unless you hate HTC Sense and fall for the the 4g hype and need a 4g device.

    If you want to play the game, you could get a free one! They are also giving away 16 Charges with a second chance to win by scanning something up to 10x a day. :icon_ banana:

    I have found that free is a very good price, indeed.

    Dang i was hoping this was gonna be alot cheaper so i could consider this instead of the TB bc TB lacks the HDMI port.

    Oh well, dont think i am gonna wait till june or later for bionic/targa or any of the other better looking devices projected for late summer. TB here i come :s

    You're probably right. They're probably milking these prices now before the iPhone 5 hits.
