Droid Charge Still Unavailable

At the end of last month, Verizon Wireless experienced an outage with its 4G LTE network that caused the wireless carrier to postpone the launch of the latest member of the Droid family, the Droid Charge by Samsung. The Droid Charge is slated to be the second LTE smartphone in the Verizon Wireless lineup.

Although Verizon Wireless fixed the issues with its LTE service, the Droid Charge is still unavailable. Currently, users can sign up to receive email updates about the availability and price of the Droid Charge. After signing up, Verizon Wireless says the phone is "coming soon." On May 3, Samsung Mobile posted a tweet saying the Droid Charge is "almost here."

It's likely that Verizon Wireless is working to ensure that it will be able to handle the increase in traffic before launching the Droid Charge. After all, it's better for the wireless carrier to delay the phone a little bit than to face the same situation AT&T has faced with the iPhone in not being able to provide enough bandwidth to users.
