While I like to see information leak about unannounced handsets, what's even better is getting entire leak roadmaps full of new devices. Today we have a leaked Verizon Wireless roadmap courtesy of Boy Genius Report, and, unsurprisingly, it's full of Android. The list of leaked devices and information looks like this:
- In addition to the Motorola DROID and Motorola DROID X, we’re told Motorola will launch a new DROID handset, the Motorola DROID Pro. It is supposed to have a 1.3GHz CPU, 4″ screen and global roaming capabilities. Estimated launch of November 2010
- Motorola is working with Verizon on a “slab form-factor” device that sort of looks like an old Motorola Q but features a full touchscreen and global roaming. It will run Android 2.2. Maybe this will be a lower cost, MOTOBLUR handset?
- There are a lot more Android invasions happening before the end of the year, we’re told. This includes a global Android device from both Samsung and HTC.
- Samsung is working on a 7″ screen Android tablet with front-facing camera. Motorola is also working on a tablet as well, except it will sport a 10″ screen, either 1GHz or 1.3GHz CPU, front-facing camera, and Android 3.0. Don’t expect the Motorola so soon though, as we’re informed that while the launch was supposed to happen in December, Android 3.0 will probably hold up the release of that device and we should expect it around February 2011.
- Verizon Wireless is aiming and on track to have at least 75% of the country covered in LTE coverage by April 2012
- There will be a Novatel LTE MiFi device available in January or February that will apparently support up to 10 simultaneous Wi-Fi users.
- Lastly, we’re told LTE data pricing will stick at $59.99/month, though it’s unclear what the data allowance will be.
I don't know about you, but I think every device on that list sounds amazing. The Motorola DROID Pro, with its 1.3 GHz processor and 4-inch screen, could be a huge hit, especially with owners of the original DROID. Let's just hope that Moto decides to load vanilla Android on it and leave the sort-of-BLUR skin at home. The LTE news is great, too, and while April 2012 is still far away from now, getting 75 percent of the country blanketed in LTE in about a year and a half is pretty awesome. Better start saving your pennies for all of the hot new Android devices and LTE data!
