Finally, the long road of the Droid Charge comes to a close as we have one in hand for an unboxing!
It feels like this phone has been haunting us for ages, but in reality we saw it for the first time as CES back in Jan., when it didn’t even have a name. Then we got spy shots of it when it was known as the Samsung Stealth, then it became the Droid Charge. It finally got announced for an April 28th release, only to be stopped just short of launch due the the Verizon LTE outage. After that it was just a bunch of rumors of when this phone would finally hit store shelves, and while there some speculation that it would be this Tuesday, a tipster sent us shots from a southern California Best Buy of it already for sale.
To say this phone has had a long journey would be an understatement.
At long last, however, it’s in the TechnoBuffalo offices, and it’s time to get to the unboxing! We take you on a tour of the physical aspects of the handset, look at the screen, the apps and everything else you could want.
Let us know in the comments what you think of the overall look and if you’re interested in picking one up. Also don’t hesitate to leave us a joke involving the name of the phone.
Here are the basic specs again for your refresher.
