Possible New Release Dates for the DROIDX2, LG Revolution and Xperia Play on Verizon?

Our friends at Verizon just reached out to share with us the upcoming May release schedule for a variety of new devices including the DROIDX2, LG Revolution, and Xperia Play.  All have been rumored left and right, but it’s starting to look like Big Red has firmed up its plans for each one of them.  Here is what we’ve got:

  • DROIDX2:  May 12 – Reps are being told to sell through the remaining inventory of the original DX to make room for the DX2.  And remember that the DX2 is expected to be Verizon’s first dual-core Tegra 2 phone.
  • LG Revolution:  May 12 – The next 4G LTE device, which will follow up the DROID Charge.  It’s also expected to be the first Android phone to launch with Netflix support.
  • HTC Trophy:  May 12 – The first Windows Phone 7 device for Verizon.  Possibility of a limited supply.
  • Sony Xperia Play:  May 26 – You all know it as the PlayStation Phone.  It looks like it’s finally ready for the States.  Should be offered in all VZW stores.

As you have all probably realized, May 12 is looking like a huge day and is next Thursday.  If these dates indeed hold up, and we’re expecting at least a couple of them to, then you should start seeing press releases by the end of this week or at the very latest, next Monday.  Talk about device overload.  We just barely got our hands on the Charge and Incredible 2!

Cheers ___!

    I love the new droid.  I prefer it over the iphone anyday

     I’m glad this isn’t an LTE phone. That means we might actually see a release date that is met (I’m looking at you, Thunderbolt and Droid Charge).

    Ok, it’s Tuesday, now where are the press releases for the Droid X2??? As a matter of fact… where are the press releases for any of them???!!!

    • http://twitter.com/cromag_rickmanu Dan Rickman

      I agree… makes me nervous because it’s been really quiet these past few days. I’m crossing my fingers it just shows up on the site tomorrow :P

      • Nkmett15

        Good news! I was looking on Android Central and they are saying that the dummy X2′s are arriving at some stores! It looks like we are only days away from release, but I doubt we’ll be getting it tomorrow.

    Does anyone know if the Xperia Play will have Netflix at some point? Or at least can handle it…I would think so but I’m not sure.

    I’m also hoping since U.S. is last for some completely unknown but likely stupid reason, maybe the U.S. release will have something a little extra with release…

    And hoping for $199 :)

  • http://twitter.com/Vision77 Vision77

    The true significance of the the Revolution release will be: Netflix hitting the switch on their servers for the android devices & and an updated Netflix apk us who don’t have the LG Revolution….but own a G2x……bring it

  • Ms.Carmen Diva

    Xperia play needs to be released sooner :(

    Ughh…Trying to decide do i want to stay with Windows Phone 7 for the HTC trophy

    Or get back in full with Android…Deciding between Droid Charge, Xperia Play, and maybe a LG revolution

  • Anonymous

    I want a Droid 3 date!!! lol

  • Anonymous

    IMO it would be cool if they released something like the Samsung GS2 (even though I realize it’s not a Droid) on July 7, when those of us that bought the Droid on the release date will be up for our renewal. With this new round of phones coming out at the end of May, I’m hoping by the beginning of July they’ll have the next round of phones out. I know this is a ridiculous list, but hoping to get a phone with: LTE/4G, Dual core, 1gig (maybe only 768) of memory, 2MP front camera, quality back cam (not just high MP, but a good cam), qHD display, DLNA, HDMI out, and NFC. Netflix would also be nice.

    and I happen to have that day off. at least I’ll get a good laugh @ the local store while waiting for my phone. still waiting for something w/o a “helpfull” extra layer, and locked bootloader. ;-/

  • J Dub

    Seriously LG? That phone is hideous. The back reminds me of something Palm would have produced.

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      I actually think that phone looks pretty slick, at least it doesn’t have a big hump sticking out the back where the camera lens is. It would be sweet if it ran vanilla android, I probably still wouldn’t get it though. Too bad its not dual core.

  • Nkmett15

    I’m actually really looking forward to the Droid X2. I don’t have 4G in my area so that is unneeded. The fact it doesn’t have a front facing camera is not a big deal because I don’t have anyone to use it with anyways. I really don’t mind that it looks almost identical to the original. Plus, it’s got some pretty amazing specs that should make it extremely fast. I can’t wait for May 12th!!

    • http://profiles.google.com/ploskonka.1 David Plosk

      ditto every word here

    • Rlarson_mn

      I am in the exact position you are in. 4G will not be here for 12-24 months. I want a dual core 3G phone with more RAM and a better screen. The Droid X2 meets all of my requirements.

    • Anonymous

      I just wish it didn’t ship with the horrible over-hyped tegra 2.

  • Anonymous

    HTC Trophy – possible limited supply is most likely because with all the other phones launching around it… who the hell is going to buy the Trophy? The supply is “limited” because VZW doesn’t want another Kin on its hands.

    • Gee

      But the kin was AWESOM….. (snort) LOL couldn’t do that with a straight face

  • Guest

    i bet Netflix doesn’t stream fast enough for you to enjoy the movie you’re trying to watch. they put YouTube on 3G phones and the low quality videos have to buffer over and over.

  • Anonymous

    OMG LG Revolution on May 12th?!? I don’t believe this, the charge hasn’t even launched yet! If this is true then I’m so glad I waited for a new phone!!

  • LionStone

    I don’t like the way LG put their logo on the front AND back as well as the Verizon logo, bleh. The TBolt is done much better…1 VZ logo on the front and 1 hTc on the back, done.

    The X2 doesn’t have a ffc? The D3 just slapped its Droid brother…

  • http://twitter.com/finitybeyond David Chen

    Is it just me or does the Revolution look somewhat similar to the Thunderbolt?

    • vernon

      in the same way a galaxy s looks like an iphone :) LOL

  • Bleh

    wow how Unimpressive!

    • EC8CH

      really… VZW, call me when you get a dual-core from HTC (btw, it called the Sensation).

      • Jnevels89

        I’m actually considering switching to T-Mobile because I want the HTC Sensation but I would like to take advantedge of VZW’s 4G LTE data speeds.

  • Rich Floresjr

    Hopefully the Sony phone doesn’t depend on the PSN! Damn thing’s been down for 2 weeks…

  • Emeraldjun

    If Verizon can get the Nexus S, like AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are/have, that would be awesome. Personally waiting for the ‘new and improved’ Bionic and the SGSII.

    LG Revolution is going to be the first android device with netflix support? just like the thunderbolt came preinstalled with a skype with video app? yea. i’ll believe it when i see it.

      That’s making me rethink my choice of a Droid X2… I really, really want Netflix on my phone, but don’t want to have to go to an iPhone for it… Love the DX2 specs, but Netflix may win out in my heart. I will be really torn if they release with Netflix :(

    Biggest positive is getting that netflix off the Revolution!

    This will be a bit of a tough call for me. I want the lte and dual-core but I may have to choose. It would be nice if the Bionic/targa was also hitting shelves too. My OG Droid isn’t behaving anymore and I would like to upgrade. I am not a fan of Motorola locking boot-loaders, but I am also not a fan of this LG device with no dual-core processor. I want the front facing camera too. The Bionic would have been perfect. Lets hope the Targa hits before Verizon drops unlimited.

      It’s supposed to have a newer, updated version of Blur from what I have heard. Makes things a little better.

    At this point the DROID Charge will follow up the LG Revolution!!

      I doubt it. Best buy already has the charge and I got mine today. I don’t see it not being release this week.

  • Jim Dandy

    Awesome! Let’s keep it movin!

  • Anonymous

    Verizon is launching so many devices, it’s insane.

    Also, I heard the opposite with the LG Rev, DX2 and Play. I heard The 26th for the LG Rev and DX2 and 12th for the Play. We shall see though. :)

    • Anonymous

      The problem is their not launching the one I want.

      My next phone will have:

      LTE/4G
      Dual core
      768 to 1gig of memory
      front camera
      960×540 display
      $250 max

      The droid x2 was so close but it’s missing 4G
      The Thunderbolt was so close but it’s missing dual core and screen res

      I must tell myself to wait and be patient.

      • Mr.Joe

        It’s also missing that FFC and may or may not have that amount of RAM.

        You may be thinking of the Droid 3.

      • OGDroiDGO

        These are the exact specs I’m looking for as well. I still have the OG Droid and although I do love it, I hate the wait!

      • J Dub

        Waiting to see what the Droid 3 looks like and also when VZW will get the Galaxy S 2. The S2 is going to be beastly. I can feel it.

      • http://profiles.google.com/cand3rson Chris Anderson

        This is exactly what I’m waiting for as well. It’s getting tough because my OG Droid is starting to have some issues. The battery life has plummeted and the power button requires a very specific push to actually work. I’d love to be able to add stock Android to that list, but then I think I’d be waiting a very, very long time.

      • guest

        I love my DX, but I doubt I will buy the DX2 without 4G. Verizon is launching LTE everywhere and I don’t understand why verizon isn’t making all the new phones are not 4G/LTE.

      • wcramernc

        Same here! So is the LG Rev dual core or not?

  • Tyvallely

    The XPERIA Play isn’t going to have PSN for a while since PSN got hacked…..

      XPERIA play comes out in 3 weeks and PSN is coming back on this week…

      aside from all this ps stuff this phone is launching with gingerbread, unlike most other phones who launch with froyo and say ah yes youll get gingerbread eventually sony is doing it right if you ask me

    Dont forget D3 and Bionic coming in before too long

    Besides, device overload is a good thing

  • http://twitter.com/OreWaZero Christopher Zoellner

    What are the specs on the Trophy?

    • Mr.Joe

      Most likely the min specs required for a WinPhone7. Like a 1GHz Gorgeous SnapDragon.

  • Mr.Joe

    Why do you guys keep forgetting the commando?

    • Jsybird2532

      It’s out already, go to the smartphones section on Verizon’s website, you’ll see it :D.

      • Mr.Joe

        Yeah, but they didn’t say anything about it here. It’s always Incredible and Charge. The Commando came out also.

        I just wish DL gave the phone more credit =(

    Anyone have an idea what might have been the holdup for the Xperia Play? First it was April 14, then 28th, then early May, now May 26th. Feels like it kept getting pushed back in favor of “Droid” branded phones and the white iPhone 4. I’m extreme pissed that it’s been held up THIS long as though it were the red-headed step-child. I just hope THIS date sticks this time or I’m heading to Sprint for the Nexus S.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

      I’m pretty sure the delays are due to the disasters in Japan.

      • http://twitter.com/Terrormaster Terrormaster

        The early reports on that said there would be no delays due to that but that supply would would be limited. The very least Verizon could have done was throw up a pre-order page and just ship when available. But instead they stayed mum on it for a long time.

        • http://twitter.com/bigdawg2199 bigdawg2199

          Could be because of the hack on playstation

        I think you are correct the arc gets a lot of their supplies from japan so i heard

    • jason w.s.

      The push backs have nothing to do with Droids and white iphones…its been pushed back on all carriers across the board and im pretty sure the delay has been because Japan disasters and probably the PS network problems since it will most def use the PSN. I hear PS will have their own game section in the Android Market. Im kind of excited about this device.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

    Seems to me Verizon doesn’t care much about spacing Android device release dates out and even has multiple phones released on the same day. Bet you when the next iPhone comes out you won’t see any new Android releases for a month or more.

    HTC Trophy? I’d buy an iPhon’t 4 before I’d buy another phone “powered” by Winmo. I suppose this is good news for many, but I’ve been a bit underwhelmed by phones this year. I think the OG Droid and Droid X spoiled me. I guess I’ll keep waiting for more details on the Bionagra…

    • Fkntwizted

      I got hands on with the trophy this week and must say winmo is solid… Definitley not winmo of old

    • Mr.Joe

      I’d go back to my old Nokia phone before even considering the iPhone.

      I’m surprised. I’d didn’t expect you to be such a sell out.

            The fact is… I don’t care for Winmo, and I was making a rhetorical point. I will never buy an iPhon’t. :-)

          • chaoscentral

            Well judging by your comments you have never tried windows phone 7. Because even remotely comparing it to winmo shows your ignorance as the 2 have literally nothing in common. They are night and day in difference.

          • Anonymous

            Thanks for your subjective view of my knowledge of Winphone 7. I have tried it, and you’re correct that it is a vast improvement over my previous Winmo phones. However, I’ve been burned three times by windows phones and more times than I can count by Windows OS. So, despite your assertion that I’m ignorant, I’m actually stubborn and refuse to buy another Windows phone any time in the foreseeable future. My next phone, like my current phone, will be an Android phone.

          • jason w.s.

            You know he’d never EVER buy an iphone, lol. Its just the weird hatred you have for Apple reminds me SOO much of an old racist person that just hates something (someone) so strongly that its almost uncomfortable. I know its oddly enough normal and completely understandable to most of you on here, but to me its just awkward and weird. From your behavior you’d almost think Apple has offended you personally, and/or hurt or touched you in a bad way.

    • Balthazar B

      Looks nice if it’s powered down. Powered up, the first thing you’d see is Bing instead of Google. And if LG puts locked, encrypted bootloader on that sucker, it’ll never change. For all its faults, the Charge’s bootloader is at least unlocked and it’s been rooted already, meaning that there’s hope for alternative ROMs/kernels and a way to get rid of the carrier’s bloatware.

      • SKINNI

        That doesnt bother me. I download what Google apps i want & im good. Custom Roms are cool but again, nothing that makes or breaks a phone for me. It does what i need/want it do & i like the look so im good. Im sure the LG will be rooted within days as well & thats all i need

        • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

          Rooting is cool but way overrated

          • SKINNI

            Its not the end all for me. I only care to have it for wifi tether. The other stuff doesnt matter much at all to me & custom roms matter even less
