Looks like the Droid Charge is coming down the pike. "Charge" is right name for it if the $300 subsidized price is correct. Too rich for my blood, but I can't make use of LTE yet so it's moot.

2) It takes YEARS to get a damn software upgrade. My Fascinate is running an OS 15 months old! That's inexcusable.
3) TouchWiz is an abomination. Inferior to stock Android in every conceivable way except for the missed call/SMS puzzle pieces on the lock screen. I dumped TouchWiz for ADW.Launcher within hours of getting my Fascinate.
