DROID Bionic, HTC Vigor and New LG LTE Device Land on Verizon’s MAP List

Just when we thought August was going to be a slow month around these Verizon parts, we get slapped with their latest MAP (minimum advertised price) list that includes some pretty major players.  The first one we’ll talk briefly about is in position 1 as the Motorola MOTXT875, which many of you may know as the brand new DROID Bionic.  But since we’ve been told that it won’t be out until September, let us quickly move on to devices that could be out before it ever sees a store shelf that are also on the list.

I’d say that the most important and intriguing device that we should point out is in position 3 as HTC ADR6425, which many of us were first introduced to last week as the HTC Vigor.  To refresh, this would be the device with the 720p resolution, the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and the brand new Adreno 220 GPU.  Yep, if those specs actually do come true, then we’re looking at one of the most powerful and impressive devices on the planet.

The next device we should take a look at is the LG-VS920 which could be the follow-up to the Revolution (already).  The original Revolution is model number LG-VS910, so this easily seems like some sort of a new build.  It has received it’s Bluetooth certification already and definitely has LTE capabilities.  Revo 2, anyone?

And the last device to point out is ADR6330, which we know nothing about.  What we do know is that the model number sort of matches up to the Incredible line, so it could be the silver and white edition that we saw this morning?  Well maybe, except that the Incredible 2 that you can buy now is ADR6350.  It almost seems to be a device below the Incredible 2, but what could it be?  We’ve heard rumors of a new HTC global roaming device with a keyboard similar to the Merge – could this be it?

A lot of questions for a bunch of devices, that so far, we don’t know much about.  So when should we expect some of them to arrive?  MAP listings aren’t necessarily good gauges for a release, but they are at least a sign that we should see them sooner rather than later.  With no current plans that we know of for August from Verizon, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see at least one of these in the next few weeks, before the Bionic drops.  We’re hoping to know more very soon.

Should get interesting…

Cheers ___!

    The Bionic looks good, but it could already be behind the curve technology wise. Anyway, I’ll check it out. Great information, and I’ll bookmark the site.

  • Matt Howard

    Well we know the SGS2 is coming in August right?  Why isn’t that on this list?

    For me, the Bionic is DOA unless they really up the ante from what has been leaked.  It’s down to:

    SGS2
    HTC Vigor
    Xperia Duo
    Nexus 3

    Since the Sammy and the HTC are likely to be the first two of those four, I will pick one of those up UNLESS there is some solid information on the Nexus 3, which is what I think we really should be waiting for.

  • Dean2359

    Guys c’mon,as much as I’d love to think otherwise,that vigor has got to be a tablet,the rez is just too high.

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2 (64GB) and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $674 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentHub.com

    I’m done caping for Moto , but HTC has the knack for being underwhelming. That said I’ll hold on to my X until something blows my panties off…

  • http://www.facebook.com/COOOOOOOOOOOOOOP Brad W. Cooper

    Why are we all just ruling out the Bionic already before it is even out. Yes there are other phones leaked out in the road map, but still there is no official info on the Bionic and I for one am done playing the waiting game. Once the Bionic is out that is what I am getting. Had an upgrade sine Aug 2010. You can all wait and wait and wait while I enjoy my dual core LTE phone.

  • Anonymous

    Do we have any confirmation that the  phone listed are the ones that we are speculating?

  • http://www.facebook.com/dieselxdan Danny Nguyen

    Bionic is like the crusaders. The biggest failure.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dennis-Sullivan/707444702 Dennis Sullivan

    So what if it’s the Sensation/Evo3d overclocked with a higher res!  That would be a great thing!  I for one will be watching for updates on this phone now that I don’t want the Bionic anymore.

      Wow you guys are really desperate. lol

      It’s not a Corvette with a bigger modded engine.

      It’s like a Civic with a fart can.

      You can polish a turd, it’s still a turd.

  • http://profiles.google.com/statsprofessor Jakub Palka

    It’s 1650 mAh.

  • http://profiles.google.com/statsprofessor Jakub Palka

    Vigor is just a Sensation/Evo3d overclocked and higher res.

    Way to get excited over nothing. That snapdragon turd should be choking even more now.

    Then again people get excited over dinc 2 and thunderbolt which were old news before they even came out.

    • Superior

      YEA AND UR POINT IS. Those are two of the baddest phones out right now. That’s a good thing.

      • http://profiles.google.com/statsprofessor Jakub Palka

        You mean two of the most disappointing phones out there right now.

        HTC’s are not worth buying till the Krait’s come and by then they’ll be passed by anyway.

        Huge reception problems, low storage, defective screens, laggy, sense hogging resources, ancient cpu, browser/web below the competition, small batteries,  just all around fail by HTC.

        Evo3d at 1.8ghz still benchmarks crappy, yeah benchmarks are not everything but that’s the main reason all you geeks want a SGS2 because without that it’s just a cheap Samsung with nothing special about it.

        • http://twitter.com/Skitz_Marz Alex Gandero

          LMAO, you are an idiot. Huge reception problems? i never had an issue with reception on my thunderbolt. Low storage? thunderbolt is the highest amount of storage out of the box (40GB). laggy? every single phone lags. the only one that hasn’t shown lag is the G2X. Sense is a preference. you like it or you don’t, but i’m going to to say that most people do like Sense over the other custom UI’s. Ancient isn’t a word i would use to describe the best processor out(Vigor). Tell us what phone you have?

    • Anonymous

      And you know this how? I mean all these OEM’s just make variations to their models for different carriers they rarely change something entirely just add some more features to the newer iteration of the phone.

    I really dont care about the Bionic anymore… I’m waiting for the SGSII :) also heard that has an impressive battery life 1800MAh – not bad!!!

    I would like to voice my affection for your generosity giving support to persons that absolutely need help with this important subject. Your personal commitment to getting the solution all around appears to be extraordinarily practical and have consistently made folks much like me to arrive at their aims. Your personal informative guideline entails a lot to me and further more to my office colleagues. Warm regards; from everyone of us.

  • Bert336

    any actual pictures of the vigor yet? =]

  • Bert336

    that 720p display just won me over! hate to say it and sound like a broken record….but like the rest of you guys…goodbye Bionic….

  • William Cornelison

    You guys are joking right.

    Droid Bionic will have the biggest freaking marketing campaign ever, all these other phones will just be “other” droids to the average unknowledgeable joe walking into a Verizon store.  All nerds on here will know to buy a better phone by the time the bionic drops but everyone else, “ZOMG cool new Bionic displayyy.”

Take advantage of the remaining portion of the year. You have been performing a tremendous job.

  • Interstellarmind

    do we know if the htc vigor will be LTE? no LTE is a deal breaker (after having been spoiled by it on my t-bolt).

    • Anonymous

      Well, if the model number gives us any information, I believe it will. The “L” in ADR6425LVW is only found in one other HTC phone for VZW, the Thunderbolt (4G); both the Incredible and Incredible 2 fail to have the “L” in their model numbers (both 3G) – ADR6300VW and ADR6350VW, respectively. If the “L” in the model number does signify LTE, then this phone (or tablet) should have LTE. For the same reasons, I would expect the other HTC phone in this list, ADR6330VW (alt color Incredible 2 or otherwise), to be only 3G.

  • Anonymous

    I guess I’ll wait for the HTC Vigor. Seems like a pretty significant upgrade on the Droid Bionic as long as it comes with Lte

    I can’t wait for the 2 hours of battery life on that amazing HTC Phone. I’m sure they’ll squeeze in a 1250 MAh battery in there.

      couple hours of battery or locked down last generation phone with a crappy pentile screen. Take your pick. I still have my OG Incredible and im happy with it. The battery life is much improved with other ROMs and kernels.

    I precisely needed to thank you very much once more. I do not know the things I would’ve used without those methods shown by you regarding this subject. It was actually an absolute scary setting in my circumstances, nevertheless taking a look at a new expert strategy you managed it took me to cry with gladness. Extremely happier for your guidance and thus hope that you find out what a great job you are putting in teaching men and women through your site. Probably you have never got to know any of us.

    I’m really not putting to much into this as far as hopes go.  We all know about the Bionic.  I think the HTC devices will be a global Incredible 2 (white) and the “Vigor” will be Verizon’s version of the HTC Flyer (a tablet).  The LG phone will be the long awaited LG Revere (which could be a dual core 4g phone, but it’s LG guys).  As much as I’d love to think of having a phone with specs like the “Vigor”, I’m just not putting my hopes in it.

    • Anonymous

      As much as I would be disappointed by comment, I think you may be right about the 2 HTC model numbers (I’d prefer the ADR6425LVW to be a qwerty superphone, similar to the Doubleshot, but I think I’m dreaming). I doubt Verizon would release such a powerful, competing LTE phone as closely to the expected to be new flagship phone, Motorola Bionic. I agree that the ADR6330VW will probably be the white/silver version of the Incredible 2. I’ll also go against the grain, and say that I don’t think that the LG VS920 will be a gen2 Revolution; the model number is too close, and the Revolution, itself, was just recently released – too soon to release a replacement model. I think we’ll see this being the WP7 counterpart to the Revolution (like the Android Lg Ally VS740 and the WinMo LG Fathom VS750).

      • Anonymous

        Another thought for the LG VS920, again consider the closeness of this model number to the Revolution, perhaps this will just be an alternative color choice for the Revo? – similar to to the silver/white Incredible 2. I still think my previous thought is more likely, however, considering the LG Vortex used a different numbering scheme for its color options: VS660 for black versus VS660V for violet.

      The vigor will be a phone. the Flyer’s model number is PG41120, and all the HTC phones are ADR******

  • The Dude

    I’d just like to point out that the specs for the Vigor are VERY similar to that of the Flyer and the EVO View 4G. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Vigor turns out to be the VZW version of the Flyer.

    • MOTOX

      I thought the flyer had the adreno 205 gpu…i forgot…i might be wrong but i think it does…true…actually very true about the 720p display too….you might be right…but i hope its a phone…

      EDIT: the flyer isn’t dual core though…

      • hkklife

        LTE version of the Flyer/View 4G, perhaps?  It’s already got a gig of RAM and 32Gb of storage.  Add LTE to that and a better CPU/GPU and you’re set for a nice 7″ VZW Tablet.  Remember, there was supposed to be a VZW LTE version of the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7″ but it was never seen again after CES earlier this year.  Something like this would make for a solid replacement device, especially since VZW has no LTE tablets under 10″. 

  • MOTOX

    F the bionic…right on…but can’t they be sued for that anyways? Remember a long time ago…Bionicles… lol

  • Droiiid

    Why hasn’t the SGSII popped up on any MAP lists yet if it’s supposedly coming in August????

      not for verizon just to the US in august verizon wont see the sgs2 at the earliest middle october..

  • Pnicuh

    Doesn’t matter if its late, Bionic ftw, I need that Red Robotic Eye and I seen all the comments about ”F the Bionic” but when it comes out ya’ll gonna crawl back to it, just saying. I need an upgrade I have a BlackBerry Strom 2 YES! a BB S2! I don’t care what ya’ll say Droid Bionic will be here next to me.

    • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

      Thats what I am saying bionic all day it has every spec I need just hoping there is a nfc chip in it

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KTGKBDMFNMTHTXUT3ILVEUOKEE matts

    I really hope the rumors about the Vigor are true, if so, it’ll definitely be my next phone. Forget about the Bionic, Moto can’t do anything right.

  • Peter Bartholomul

    I knew this would happen. I even predicted it months ago. The droid Bionic, the most powerful and fastest phone will become outdated and forgotten before it’s even released.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dennis-Sullivan/707444702 Dennis Sullivan

      I really hope so!  Motorola has been one screw up after the next.

    • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

      how is it outdated its going to be the first dual core lte phone for verizon???

  • Mrbrooks418

    I think Verizon should have a special trade in price for Thunderbolt customers. When the HTC Vigor is released, we should be able to hand in our TB and only pay a $50 upgrade charge for the Vigor. The specs on that phone is going to crush everything out there. and its a HTC phone w/ HTC sense. The best UI on the market. This would be a way for Verizon/HTC to make good for the Mistakes and problems with the Thunderbolt. the Vigor is gonna wipe it’s @ss with the bionic and the samsung line. Im GONNA wait for the HTC Vigor, because Im done waiting for the Thunderbolt to be Updated. (its sad because the thunderbolt even in its current state kills mostly every other phone out there)
    Just sayin……

    • Anonymous

      So then what happens when the vigor has similar problems are you going to expect to trade that in for the next new thing? I mean they do have a trade in its called the trade in on their site and you get a giftcard for verizon so pretty much they are doing that.

    • Anonymous

      Preach brother!

    • Granted

      I’m sure they will do this. I’ve heard about it already, it’s called the “Impulsive Instant Gratification Discount”.

    • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

      Sense is not the best UI…Its way to big and obtrussive at least moto is cutting down the blur while htc is adding on to sense.. It isnt right and at that rate I think sense will be the new blur…Its too clunky now and too much going on they need to simplify or sense will soon be #1 hated ui
