A placeholder page for the Samsung Droid Charge popped up at Walmart’s site today ahead of a rumored April 14th launch, but with no official word from Verizon it is unknown if the new 4G LTE device will launch as speculated. The page offered no more than a promotional shot of the phone and it’s glowing Droid eye, but now looks to have been pulled. Specifications, pricing, and release details were absent.
All rumors to date have placed the handset’s launch this month, but Verizon has been surprisingly mum on the handset since it was first shown off at CES back in January. Though its large screen and LTE radio will make it appealing to some, the Charge has done little to drum up much excitement. Perhaps the Droid name was added not because of the caliber of the device, but rather to help push sales of a handset that seems destined to be lost in a crowded spring release schedule.
