Samsung Droid Charge
Will This Phone Support Netflix?
However Samsung is using Samsung's own Humminbird version of the A8 Cortex. As you would expect from a video company vs. a datacomm company, Samsung's version has had better graphics. Enough better that a v2.1 Hummingbird runs smoother than a v2.2 Snapdragon.
However, does the Hummingbird have the hardware for DRM? Did Samsung make the iPhone processors? The iPhone was the first to support Netflix.
The idea of watching movies on the train is attractive, although many of the classic movies I like are not on Netflix streaming service.
Samsung has their Samsung Media Hub, at absolutely ridicously high prices compared to Netflix and Hulu Plus, already available on all Galaxy S phones and pads. The Droid Charge is a Galaxy S with LTE, updated screen technology (super AMOLDE Plus) and a slighly unusual shape.
Net: I would expect the Droid Charge to support it. Not sure about the HTC Thunderbolt; Verizon sent me an e-mail, point blank, no. It is supposed to be introduced on the LG Revolution when it is released, possibly to built interest in that phone.
My guess is it will be available ...
