The Samsung DROID Charge, the 4G smartphone whose release date on Verizon Wireless network was delayed as a result of problems on the operators LTE network, is scheduled to go on sale Saturday, according to a report.
Verizon sales reps and techs have been asked to don Charge t-shirts if they are scheduled to work this weekend, Droid Life says. And that’s not all the Motorola DROID2, originally scheduled for release today, is now said to have a May 26 release date.
A Verizon spokesperson was not immediately available to confirm the report.
Last month, Verizon Wireless delayed the release of the DROID Charge its second 4G smartphone after its customers faced problems connecting to its high-speed LTE network.
Up until now, the HTC ThunderBolt has been Verizon’s only 4G smartphone offering.
