Entire New DROID Lineup Appears in Verizon Device Manager: BIONIC, Incredible 2, Charge, and DROIDX2

Verizon’s device management system has always been one of those we go to when looking for the newest info on upcoming devices.  So when we saw that the DROID Bionic, DROID Charge, DROID Incredible 2, and DROIDX2 were all included, we got excited and had to share.  While there are no release dates tied to these, it’s just one of those things we cross off our lists when we’re in countdown mode for a phone’s release.  

Some things to note though:

  • No mention of 4G LTE anywhere near the DROIDX2.  This matches up with everything we’ve heard from day 1 when we first reported news of this phone’s existence, almost 3 months ago now.
  • The Incredible 2 is definitely global, again news we first reported on.
  • The VCAST store is headed to all of the devices except for the DROIDX2.
  • The LG Revolution, HTC Merge, and Xperia PLAY are also all in device manager.

Cheers ___!

    What the heck does “O” mean under the Global Phone heading for the Incredible 2?

    The X2 will not be gracing my palm. I guess I need the bionic for large screen 4G dual core goodness.

    VCAST…the store nobody asked for.

    • Anonymous

      Verizon has one of the original phone “stores” with VCAST… unfortunately they never marketed it well. Case in point, no one ever asked for the Amazon Appstore, yet how often to people visit it now for the free app of the day!

      • Anonymous

        People are asking for Amazon’s store now though. VCAST store? Not so much.

        VCAST is seen by most people either indifferently or as hated bloatware. It offers absolutely nothing of value IMO. Its just an excuse for Verizon to be invasive and get their hooks into my phone.

  • wolfie

    Dx2 4g?? Only if you mail it back for a radio change………. :P :)-
    Just a thought…….

  • Djkoz78

    I wonder why VZW hasn’t announced their 3d flagship device like the Evo 3d. Im not really concerned with the 3d aspect so much other than it’s a pretty cool feature being able to view take pictures & video all in 3d. But what really got my attention was the Evo 3d specs. So far it’s got the best specs it any phone I’ve seen our read about. Or has VZW announced something only I missed it? Lemme know.

    • Anonymous

      That thing is def a beast….i could give a sht about 3d, but like u said, spec/design wise its insane

      • Anonymous

        Galaxy s 2 has better specs than evo 3d

    • Anonymous

      You haven’t missed anything. I think Verizon is going with the Bionic and possibly the iPhone 5 as flagship devices. I’m waiting for something similar to the EVO 3D spec wise.

    no VCast Store for the Droid X2?!? i’m switching carriers!! ;-)

    • Iam3dski

      Vcast is pointless and just a way for Verizon to make money switch carries since you obviously have no knowledge of the real world

    I didnt see mention of the Xperia play(unless i missed it) which is the phone i am most concerned about….The other phones really do not interest me…Maybe the Droid charge or Incredible 2

  • NoRootingForYou

    Android fans need to read this post about what carriers, OEMs, and Google are doing to lock down devices. . . rooting may soon come to an end.

    4G= WIN… I don’t understand why they are still putting out 3G only phones now that we have seen what 4G can do?? As for the Dual core I’m not sure how I need that. My Thunderbolt is smooth and snappy. I think we need the software to catch up and use the dual core. Still a ways off before we need dual core IMO…

    • Ms.Carmen Diva

      Because some people(like myself) could careless to buy a phone that is 249-300 bucks for 4g. 4g is not a killer feature nor a win feature for EVERYONE at this point in time so it makes sense to release phones that are 3g at the relative 199 price point

      • Anonymous

        Meh… got mine for 199 with my discount. 4G=Cable modem speeds, 3G=Dial-up speeds. If you use the internet at all it is a killer feature… Still IMHO of course…

    • Anonymous

      Because many of us are not in a 4G area and won’t be for at least a year, maybe 2.

      Not that I’ll say no to a 4G phone. I’m longing for that Bionic, whenever it appears. I won’t pay extra for a 4G data plan that I can’t use, if that ends up being required.

  • Tcal

    I am actually kind-of disappointed in what Droid devices they are going to bring out this year (based on the phones known to be coming out). No new interesting hardware (like a fingerprint scanner or gorilla glass) that helps it stand out of the crowd coming in; They either have a 1ghz processor or a Tegra 2, nearly the same resolution (The Droid Charge being the exception), and pretty much the same designs from last year (The exception being the Droid Charge as well as the Droid Bionic). Of course, I am basing this on “leaked” information that could change before the actual release.
    It’s pretty much gotten to the point for me that I am looking forward to Samsung and Sony Ericson for a good smartphone (Samsung for their Super AMOLED plus and that Exynos 1.2 GHz Dual-Core processor and Sony Ericsson for their Game Pad, 10+ point multi-touch screen as well as their Exmor R sensor.

  • David

    Any reports on the targa

    • http://twitter.com/NovembersDirge The Observer

      Last i read it was rumored to be launching around the holiday season later this year, possibly as the first quad-core device.

  • http://www.stabilizedeffortscope.com Rilgon Arcsinh

    And let me guess, not a single damn one of the LTE-enabled ones has a physical keyboard, do they? Argh.

    • Anonymous

      no because no one cares about physical keyboards anymore.. 4+” phone + error correction or swype is faster than anyone with a physical kb.. even my BB friends that refused to switch to android unless the phone had a physical KB say im right and never use their kb

      • Death

        Yeah, um. Think about the younger people, like me (12). We text 1000x more than you, and we NEED physical keyboards. this pisses me off too.

        • Anonymous

          Back in my day we would just wait till we saw each other to talk, and what a 12yr has to say is not that important.

            agreed. why on earth would a twelve year old need a droid? and second of all what do you have to text about? you’re twelve…girls still have coodies

          • Null

            I’m amazed you don’t want a physical keyboard, what with your fat fingers and all.

    I guess the droid 3 is far off?

  • ahuj9

    the bionic is the only dual-core 4g phone on here? what the hell

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NEOS2HO2ITOC6GKUN2Q4DZHZCA Daniel

      i think to clarify it’s the only 4g on here, I think all the rest are dual core. (tegra 2)

      • ahuj9

        right but the 4g and dual-core combination is the one that im most interested in. so far, bionic is the only one and the galaxy s2 is nowhere to be seen. i guess im stick with the bionic :(

  • Nemesis099

    Well Hopefully when the droid x3 comes out next year it will be 4g for when I upgrade as I like the form factor for it.

  • Vanilla Ice

    Kellex, can you please post the Revolution’s Device manager. if its even worth it… thanks

  • Alphaking

    What does the “O” mean under Global for the incredible?

  • Vanilla Ice

    vcast=Y more like =FAIL. Damn verizon and their damn useless apps. T-mobile devices are really starting to make these droids look like kid toys.

    • http://twitter.com/djstarion Francisco Rodriguez

      Nobody’s forcing you to install the VCast apps?

      • http://twitter.com/UFSanity Curtis

        True, but the fact that the store that we will never use IS installed, is taking up space, and cannot be removed is rather annoying.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NEOS2HO2ITOC6GKUN2Q4DZHZCA Daniel

          honestly how much space do these bloatware apps take up? A 20-30 megs at most…on an 8gig internal card that is def not the reason to be upset. More like I hate scrolling through useless garbage in my app drawer that I want to get rid of…that’s an excuse.

          • http://twitter.com/erickbernal27 Erick Bernal

            Well You Don’t Get 8Gigs Of App Storage….

          • Tim242

            It’s not the space it takes up in storage, it’s the space it takes up in RAM…and even worse are the ones that want to run in the background (running services) I’m looking at you City ID, Skype, Social Networking, Backup Assistant…and many more.

    Droid 3?

    • Kevoskee

      Yeah that’s what I was thinking. I think the Droid 3 is the most essential part to the Droid line

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Darren-Howard-Brooke/1457958012 Darren Howard Brooke

        No Droid 3… hardly a full lineup. Sad how neglected this phone has been.

        • Tim242

          Ummm…It won’t be time for the Droid 3 until October/November……..

      • Anonymous

        I might spring on the TB for the 1yr discount this weekend then sell it in 6 months or so for 500-600 bucks & pick up the Droid 3.

        • Anonymous

          It only costs 600 full retail you will probably get about 350 if that in 6 months for the tb

          • Anonymous

            OG Droid’s are still going for 200-250 on E-bay & 300 new on amazon. And thats almost a 3yr old phone. I think I could do a lot better w/ a 6 month old TB. But Best Buy won’t do a one year contract so that’s out of the question now anyway.

          • skiaddict93

            you would never be able to sell it for that much anyway… OG droids sell for that much because they are the original. the TB will be worth that much for about 3 weeks until the next better phone comes out, then goodluck. People would just get a new one anyway

          • Anonymous

            Thats what I was starting to think about the OG Droid & why its still so much money. I never went and bought T.B. b/c Best Buy didn’t do 1yr contracts & now that it will not get sense 3.0 I’m just playing the waiting game.

          • Greekmanx

            actually verizon doesnt do 1 yr contracts period so it is not Best Buy.

      • Tim242

        It won’t be time for the Droid 3 until October/November.

    Anyone know if the Incredible 2 will do SVDO??

    • Anonymous

      Mostly likely no. 4G phones only. The CDMA-eHRPD which is part of the CDMA/LTE handoff is what’s responsible for the 3G SVDO
