We've been hearing rumors about the release date for the Samsung DROID Charge for a few weeks now, but VZW has just announced that the official launch date for Sammy's first 4G LTE smartphone will be April 28th. Considering that Samsung released the source code for the Charge last week, this comes as little surprise.

The Charge will hit the sales floor for the ridiculously high price of $299 with a new two year agreement. What do you get for all of that green, you ask?

  • 4.3 Inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen
  • 1GHz Hummingbird processor
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 1.2MP front camera
  • Android 2.2
  • Mobile Hotspot with support of up to 10 devices

What do you think? Will you be picking it up or is the $299 price tag just too steep for you?
