April 28th is going to be a big day at Verizon for Android lovers, as three new phones are scheduled to hit the sales floor, adding even more choices to the already vast lineup of VZW Android powered goodness.

Samsung DROID Charge

First on the list is the Samsung DROID Charge. I realize that we've known the release date for several days, but it's definitely worth mentioning again since it's the first 4G phone to carry the DROID tag and will most likely take its place as the new flagship phone for VZW.



  • 4G LTE
  • 4.3 Inch Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1GHz Hummingbird processor
  • 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera
  • Mobile Hotspot with support for up to 10 devices
  • Android 2.2 with Samsung's TouchWiz interface
  • Price: $299 with a new two-year agreement

It is (unjustly) the most expensive phone on the list, with the fact that it runs on Verizon's 4G LTE network the only thing that it really has going for it.

HTC DROID Incredible 2

The successor to the outrageously popular DROID Incredible 1 by HTC, this one packs a punch under the hood that is sure to make (almost) everyone happy.



  • 4 Inch Super LCD display
  • Global device
  • 1GHz Snapdragon (the same one used in the Thunderbolt)
  • 768MB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera with 720P video capture
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • Android 2.2 with HTC Sense 2.1
  • Price: $199 with a new two-year agreement

I was a huge fan of the original DROID Incredible, and even though this new incarnation lacks a dual-core processor, I think it's an outstanding replacement device.

Casio G'zOne Commando

This one is a little bit different than the others on the list. Instead of packing the fastest possible hardware under the hood, this is a rugged, rough, and tough phone meant for those out there that end up having to use their insurance policy 3 times per year.



  • 3.6 Inch display
  • 800MHz processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 5MP rear camera
  • Android 2.2 with Casio's custom interface
  • Price: $199 with a new two-year agreement

It may not tout anything amazing where hardware is concerned, but it is water, dust, shock, and vibration resistant. It can also handle a greater temperature range than most other phones, and includes a pedometer, compass, and trip history for all you outdoorsmen.

So there have it, the three new devices that will grace us at Big Red this Thursday. Who will be waiting in line when they open to pick one of these up?
