Samsung Releases Droid Charge Source Code


Say what you will about Samsung and their shady business practices with keeping up to date on the latest Android firmware. But you have to hand it to them, they still fall in line when it comes to Google’s Open Handset Alliance.

Take the Droid Charge (formerly Droid Stealth) for instance. Samsung has just released the source code in their Open Source Release Center for ROM modders to dive in and begin cooking custom ROMs for a phone they haven’t even laid hands on yet.

If this and Verizon’s leaked roadmap is any indication of the phone’s arrival, we could see the Droid Charge hitting retail stores any day now.

Looks as if Sammy may be rushing to beat LG and join the Thunderbolt as Verizon’s latest 4G offering.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  4. Hopefully they will upgrade this phone when the time comes.

  5. Probably the ugliest current generation phone I have seen to date. Good, gawd Samsung…

    1. I honestly don’t know what they were thinking. There’s different and then there’s…this.

  6. @ Lex definitely agree. And at a supposed three hundred on contract never stood a chance.

  7. I agree its a darn ugly phone. Go back to the iphone clone look, its better than old blackberry clone look.

  8. Seems ….or sounds kind of cool but…ithink waiting for that long wait that is Bionic makes more sense.

  9. If this is $300 on a 2 year contract I can’t seeing it sell very well.

  10. pass

  11. I don’t think the looks matter as much as the stuck/popped out/sticking/broken hardware buttons.

  12. Samsung reportedly had a red Q1 and the competition in the smartphone, tablet, and digital device markets is definitely tightening. Either way, 2011 will have much in stored.
