The Droid Charge is finally going to have its often delayed launch this Saturday, May 14th.
Originally scheduled for release on April 28th, the Droid Charge ended up getting delayed due to the Verizon LTE outage. Rumors kept popping up of when it would hit store shelves, but it failed to ever officially materialize. It showed up in a few stores, such as a Best Buy in Southern California, but there still wasn’t any sort of official launch popping up. Even after we had already done a Droid Charge unboxing and reviewed it, there was still nothing!
Well, the wait is finally over. Verizon hit us up with a press release today that tells us the phone will be officially available tomorrow, Saturday, May 14th. The Charge will be selling for $299.99 with a two year contract, and users will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan and a 4G LTE data package. The Mobile Hotspot feature will be included for a limited time at no additional charge.
