It’s no secret that Verizon’s getting things squared away for the launch of the Samsung DROID Charge and the HTC DROID Incredible 2. We know the specs and what both devices feel like and now we finally have unofficial pricing for both.
According to a leaked document, Verizon will be selling the HTC DROID Incredible 2 for $199.99 while the Samsung DROID Charge will go for $299.99. The price of the HTC DROID Incredible 2 is certainly fair, but we’re not exactly sure why Verizon thinks they would be able to charge roughly $300 for the Samsung DROID Charge. Yes, the DROID Charge is a 4G LTE handset, but the device’s specifications line up pretty evenly with those of the HTC Thunderbolt which is currently selling for $250.
Since these are leaked (unofficial) prices, we’re hoping Verizon spends a little more thinking about the DROID Charge’s price. Having a handset that supports the fastest 4G network is quite impressive, but I find it hard to believe that customers would be willing to pay a huge premium for data speed is the phone’s other hardware doesn’t have a step up on the competition.
