Verizon Roadmap: DROID CHARGE and Incredible 2 Headed for April – BIONIC, X2, and Revolution in May

Been a while since we saw a big roadmapped leaked out from Verizon, but today, our friends over at Phandroid appear to have the latest which details more phones than I think any of us can even comprehend at this point.  Over the next 2 months, we are expecting to see at least 7 above average Android handsets (some DROID, some not) that will easily keep Verizon on top of the game throughout the rest of the year and this is only one half of it.

So here we go!  

  • Samsung DROID CHARGE: April 7 (next Thursday) – The 1GHz 4G LTE device we saw at CES, but for some reason still lacked a name.  We broke the news on it being called the DROID CHARGE over a week ago, and truthfully, are surprised this phone received the “DROID” tag.
  • Sony Xperia PLAY:  April 14 - The “Playstation” phone that will launch with what we’re hearing is stock Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
  • HTC Incredible 2:  April 28 – It’s just the Incredible S from Europe, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be awesome.  A bunch of pictures and system images have leaked out already, leaving almost no surprises for us come the 28th.
  • LG Revolution:  May 5 – Another of the 4G LTE phones that debuted at CES.  It does have one potential trick up its sleeve though; the first Android phone to ship with Netflix support.  Guess we’ll know in a month?
  • DROID BIONIC:  Some time in May – Ahhh, the phone that people have been waiting so long for.  I guess those April rumors that we ignored weren’t so credible?  We’ve been hearing May/June since the beginning and this may have just confirmed that.
  • DROID X2:  Some time in May – While we were huge fans of the first DROID X, this phone looks like it may be one giant bust.  A tiny processor upgrade, more RAM, and a slightly nicer screen isn’t going to bring out the crowds like the original.  Possibly 4G?
  • Samsung Galaxy S2:  Some time in May – Should be a beast of a phone, but Fascinate owners will tell you to run screaming from it.  Possibly 4G?

Everyone, there is your Verizon visitation schedule for the next 2 months.  Looks like a lot of trips into your local store to be testing and playing with phones, but I’m sure you are all fine with that

    Really looking forward to the Dinc2. My DROID is getting long in the tooth, and the Dinc2 supposedly has pretty awesome battery life.

    is the Sony xperia play going to be a 4G phone?

  • Anonymous

    Bring me that Bionic loving. I’ve held on to my upgrade for that very reason. I got to play with a thunderbolt yesterday and it’s nice. However, I’ve been waiting for the Bionic and really can’t wait to get my hands on one.

  • WATKANE

    Can someone tell me if dual core will make a difference on 3G since I wont have 4G where I live until next year.

  • Bogat33

    This is bullshit, I was hoping to get the Droid Bionic for my vacation to Florida. I’m supposed to leave at the end of April. Well it looks like I’m gonna have to get an iPhone, and then sell it until the next best thing comes out. Way to screw me over Verizon. I just wanted a killer phone to kill time on the airplane and if I ever get bored in Florida.

  • Stryker323

    Not eligible to upgrade from my og droid until next march. I wonder what will be out around then.

  • Inclover

    There is no decent upgrade path for Incredible owners. Inc 2 is just the Inc with a forward facing camera and no LTE. The Thunderbolt … well, we have all ready about the thunderbolt (weight, size, 4 hour battery life). Ugh.

  • Anonymous

    Theres no way the X2 will have 4G with it being so similar to the Bionic.

  • Stephen D

    The Galaxy S2 is in the roadmap? At this point, I would definitely say run, BUT, I’m gonna wait and see if Samsung updates it. And if they do, I will get one. Samsung has the potential to be the best manufacturer. Completely open bootloader(not locked like HTC or encrypted like Moto), the best hardware, IMO nice designs, but they absolutely suck with updates and that kills them.

  • tyson184

    what should we be expecting around xmass time? when my OG Droid is up for its upgrade.

    dual core 1.5? honeycomb for the phone? RED camera?

  • hkklife

    So what is the final deal on the Droid X? First we heard Tegra 2 + QHD resolution + 1GB RAM. Then we heard same 854×480 screen + 1.2Ghz single-core CPU bump.

    Now is it going to presumably be 1.2Ghz OMAP + 1GB RAM + QHD? After seeing the huge performance boost from the leaked Gingerblur, I would be interested to see what a few more Mhz and 2x the RAM would do for the Droid X’s performance. After seeing the TB’s battery life woes, I am thinking single-core + 3G will suffice for another year…

    Coming from a launch day T-Bolter…I can say I’m EXTREMELY happy I didn’t wait for any of the phones on this list.

    • Anonymous

      I got the tbolt at launch too, used a random line in my family plan.. sold it (car dock was horrific, battery life which I live to optimize, even I couldn’t do anything about it, and BT unpairing issues with my BMW, the notification light so dim behind the grate, doesn’t tell you anything when it is charging it was just weird vs a moto phone), made $220, now give me the bionic, I think I won’t ever go HTC again, moto hardware is just too nice.. and now that I have GB/blur 2.0 on my X, even the software is something to smile about along with the awesome hardware and accessories that moto makes

        I’m sorry but a phone’s accessories isn’t my cup of tea and isn’t going to sell me on a phone. You were an early adopter of a phone with brand spanking new technology and gave it 1.5 weeks to chuck it to the curb. How long have you had your X? How long did it take for you to get GB? The TB was rooted in days and the kernel is already out aka the sky is now the limit with this phone as you’re now seeing with the benchmarks that have been posted, but I’m sure you already know that. And I’m sure if you “live to optimize” battery life you would know that undervolting and tweaking clock speeds (during sleep, standby, etc.) are methods that TRULY move the needle in that department. There are people that are getting almost 2 days on a charge after tweaking. But again, to each his own….

          I buy new phones every 6 months, this is the first time ever I had the urge and followed through in selling it… as for accessories, the cardock is EXTREMELY important to me, the TB dock bounced around like a trampoline no matter how tight the adjustments were, everytime you docked/undocked it, it made a horrific click sound that made it sound like it had a lifespan of 2 months max, and then the software for the car dock just plain sucked, couldn’t leave dock mode unless you exited in which you couldn’t get back in unless you redocked it… moto’s is no only solid, doesn’t bounce, but activated by a magnet which allows you to leave the dock do what you need to do and press the home button and your back.. but your right to each his own, and that’s why we have android, choices like this

          as for battery, i’m talking software optimizations without having to downgrade the performance just to get decent battery life, things like disabling syncing, timeout, etc, if your telling me to declock the reason why I upgraded you are sadly mistaken, 2 days my ass… the fact is HTC put a 1400mah battery in the damn thing when moto uses almost 1800’s, nothing changes that fact, and I just couldn’t deal with it anymore

          I didn’t root the TB because the xda forums i read said it didn’t change battery life significantly (without downclocking or downvolting things, which is what I don’t want).. unfortunately the droid x is such a good phone I had to compare all of the TB’s downfalls to it.. and “to each his own” I went through droid x withdrawls.. and now that I’m back, with blur 2.0, I don’t even have to go through sense withdrawls (I absolutely love sense 2.0, but where sense is a 10/10 blur 2.0 is a 7/10 where blur 1.0 was a 3/10 which is why I bought a TB in the first place, I thought HTC’s hardware was on par)

          and again, all of this with $220 in my pocket swirling around my head (which happens every time I upgrade phones on launch day, just this time I bit)

    For those willing to wait,,,,for the first storm to clear

    The most interesting Verizon device to leak out is the new Motorola Targa. This smartphone just appeared on Howard Forums and little is known about it other than a rumored Christmas release date.

    so there is a chance that the Targa could become the first quad-core phone. NVIDIA recently demoed their quad-core Project Kal-El

    In fall this year we can also expect the Tegra 3, which, according to NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, is almost done. The quad-core Tegra 3 ticks at 1.5 Ghz and according to the roadmap has 3x the graphics performance of the Tegra 2 3D, support for Blu-ray video and video output up to 1920×1200 resolution.

    Tegra 3 is almost done and Tegra 4 is being built right now. “Every single year, there will be a new Tegra”.

    My Oh My, when do we buy …………

    • Anonymous

      buy dual core 4g and qhd screens.. everything else is just icing on the cake and will see minimal speed differences.. LTE stays the same, screen resolution stays the same.. FFC and other hardware stays the same.. but a bump in cores from 2 to 4 makes me think it won’t make a big difference until the software catches up.. early summer is the perfect time to upgrade

      the only thing I really wish was being announced were NFC chips.. the concept is awesome, and i think it will replace credit cards very soon… imagine going out with a friend and decide to split paying for some activity but only you have cash, your friend can hold his phone up to yours and transfer the cash.

      • Anonymous

        I agree, Devs need to catch up,and I’m sure they will update and design functional software .
        About NFC:
        On the most basic level, whipping out a credit card to pay for something takes just a few seconds. So taking out a phone, opening an application and then waving it in front of a reader isn’t going to save a whole lot of time, if any. And even if carrying just a mobile phone and no wallet does become more efficient for some people there are other mobile payment technologies that work well already.

        Specifically, SMS is being used by lots of people to make payments — especially outside of the U.S. People are doing things like topping up their phone accounts with credit, or transferring money via texting — where their phones are associated with a carrier plan. NFC really offers nothing unique.

        Ah, The pros and cons, like Verizon ATT, pepsi and coke the beat goes on…..

    So confused. When I bought the OG Droid it was a no brainer. Now, I’m not sure what to get. I want fast and reliable, physical keyboard would be nice but not necessary. After being rooted and ROM running for so long I’m kinda spoiled. Would like to be able to do that again. Now which phone to wait for?

    I’m eyeing up my first smartphone purchase. The Thunderbolt and Bionic look tempting, but I’m not sure about the size and the battery life.

    I’m curious about the Incredible 2. It’s slightly smaller, and a review I read of Incredible S said it had good battery life which is probably the most important asset a phone can have from my perspective.

  • http://twitter.com/KickingLettuce Eddie Roseberry

    As a Fascinate owner, I am hoping the Galaxy S2 really comes to Verizon and soon. But not as an “off shot”, but as the real thing (w/ CDMA/LTE). Otherwise, no thanks.

    Thunderbolt > *

    • http://twitter.com/strikeir13 Keir Stiegler

      Tbolt = single-core. When a phone comes out that can truly utilize the dual-core potential (aka when Android can use the dual-core properly), then the Tbolt will be a useless relic, like all the other single-core phones.

      I’ve got to say, none of these phones have me particularly excited (current DX owner). If I upgraded, I would want something dual-core (at least), 4G of course, ~ 4″ screen size, UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER OR AT LEAST ROOTABLE, and slim form factor. Battery life would be nice, too, but I think I’m pushing it with the rootable request already…

      • LivinFree

        Couldn’t agree more. Hopefully if word I’m hearing is accurate and it is way to early to say the Targa will cover all those wants/needs. Including the bootloader

      • jakob

        hardware is secondary to having the entire dev community back your device from day 1. dual core means so very little that it’s really funny some people have it as their deal breaking requirement. is it better? yes- more efficient, and able to produce far higher performance with smaller cache, clock, etc… is it worth being stuck on a locked down piece of bloated-out crap courtesy of motorola? not hardly.

        By the time we have software that actually takes advantage of the dual-core processor, it will be 2012. The Thunderbolt is by far the best option for the next several months.

        This is the part I just don’t understand, when people say that shortly this phone or that will become a useless relic??? How in the world will Tbolt shortly become a useless relic…..what more do you want it to do? I am all for new technology as well but give me a break!

      Droid 3 won’t be til the end of the yr fyi.

      I’ll be shocked to see the Bionic hit in May. Per my contact he said no way it will be out before June/July as they are still having issue.His comment to me was NOT to even consider buying it if it does release in May as they can keep it. That said I’m sure it will be a problem child from what he says and is testing right now.

      IMO bring us the real device ( Targa ) that will be the one to have. Just hope they don’t push it back to upgrade it to Quad core like being talked about. I’d be happy with the 1.5Ghz dual core, no need for quad core IMO but only time will tell.

    This may not be the place to ask, but since I don’t have 4G in my area and Verizion has no plans in the near future for me either, would I be wasting my money on the Bionic? Should I get the Incredible 2 or X2 instead?

    • Bullet Tooth Tony

      I would think what you should factor in here is what you feel the likelihood of getting 4G in the next 20 2 years are… or perhaps even the ability of some of the newer phones to talk and surf at the same time if that’s your thing. I fully expect to see 4G expanded to me, so I picked up the Thunderbolt.

    They don’t want a X2 with beefy specs up against the Bionic. Have a feeling a lot of people would rather save the $ on the phone and data, especially those not covered in 4G. This will help a lot of people who want the latest specs and want the large screen to go Bionic who might have bought X2 if specs were similar. The DX has done well for them and they probably want to transition it from a flagship phone to just the their top 3G option.

      We’ll let it soak in for a couple of hours though. :)

    People should be exciting over the Xperia Play. Since it has that unlocked bootloader you all demand so.

      That is only if you buy it flat out. If you get it from a carrier, locked down it is!

      Too bad it has a gamepad that makes the phone look like a toy in the hands of anybody over the age of 15.

        I thought a unlocked stock android phone was the cats meow around here. Guess it isn’t =)

          If you buy it from a carrier, it’s not unlocked. Sony already made that clear in their press statement.
