Leaked Verizon Roadmap Reveals Potential Launch Dates for Stratosphere, Vigor, Bionic and More

The folks over at IGN may have just landed the ultimate Verizon roadmap leak for the next couple of months.  We’re not even sure where to begin with so many exciting things to point out including potential release dates, but we’ll do our best to contain ourselves and make this simple.  The big things of note are the confirmation of the Samsung Stratosphere that we’ve been talking a ton about lately, the HTC Vigor replacing the Thunderbolt, and a new LG Revolution 2 that we semi-confirmed the other day.

So here we go…  

  • DROID Bionic:  (9/8 launch) – You already know everything about this device, don’t you?
  • Samsung Stratosphere:  (9/8 launch) – 4G LTE device running Android 2.3
  • HTC Vigor:  (10/6 launch) – Will replace the HTC Thunderbolt
  • LG Revolution 2:  (10/20 launch) – Will replace the original Revolution
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab P8 (November launch) – Could be the 8.9″ Galaxy Tab?
  • Samsung Illusion:  (9/29 launch) – 3G smartphone running Android 2.3
  • Samsung Plato:  (January launch) – whatever it is, it was pushed to 2012
  • HTC Bliss:  (9/29 launch) – Lower end Android 2.3 device; the chick phone?
  • Motorola XOOM 4G LTE:  (9/8 launch) – Assuming this is the date that the 4G LTE upgrade starts. Also when the 4G LTE version will be in stores.

Still no word on whether or not the Stratosphere is the Galaxy S2, but it could be battling it out directly with the Bionic should they both meet that 9/8 launch date.  Folks will have to wait for the HTC Vigor which will make its debut the following month to replace the Tbolt as one of the most anticipated devices we have reported on in a while.  And we could see some additional Android players on all sorts of levels.

So August may indeed be as boring as we predicted, but this fall is looking to be spectacular.

Cheers Derek!

    Where is the iPhone 5?????????

    The Samsung Stratosphere is “previously” the AEGIS?  Aegis was a Samsung laptop, not a smartphone.  Or am I missing something?

  • I will buy the Bionic, Running behind every phone coming out will put you in the poor house or drive you crazy.

    Samsung Stratosphere:  She’s supposed to be the Best…Maybe she is, maybe she isn’t(when released). That light plastic hurts it for me. I know it’s durable but it’s plastic(Droid X owner)HTC Vigor:  1st because I’m really diggin my wife’s Droid Incredible 2 and HTC knows how to make a phone…for the most part. We’re all looking at you Mr. T-BoltLG Revolution 2:  Will replace the original Revolution….distant 3rd. LG has yet to make a name for itself in the Android world. A good name, not just, “don’t be a troll man, they have the…” if you have to think about it and you come up with the backlight bleeding/Random rebooting GX2, Ally or some mid-range device you should slap yourself at least once.nothing else on this list matters… for now

  • I just paid $22.85 for an iPhone 4-32GB 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

  • Kyle Lehman

    I know this is the wrong site to be caring about this but did anyone notice that the iphone 5 is no where to be found on this “leaked” roadmap? 

  • Anonymous

    I don’t even bother to try and stay up with the times of phones, you will never be able to stay current unless you pay retail price for every phone you buy…  And if you think about it, that’s a shit load of money..

  • I intended to draft you this tiny remark in order to say thanks as before for the remarkable secrets you have contributed on this website. It is simply particularly generous with you to supply without restraint what exactly a few people would’ve advertised as an electronic book to make some money for their own end, especially given that you might have done it in case you decided. Those suggestions as well acted to be the good way to realize that other people online have the identical passion just as mine to realize a good deal more in respect of this problem. I’m sure there are thousands of more fun sessions up front for folks who look over your website.

    Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate.
    This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi,
    now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone
    vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and
    virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious
    and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a
    vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of
    such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily,
    this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add
    that it’s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me “Vigor… HTC Vigor”.

  • Ummm… So no GSII?! And when are we getting REAL specs on the Bionic???

    • Anonymous

      Those are the real specs just didnt change the model number

  • Ryan

    damnnn….. i was waiting for the bionic. but now i think im just gonna hold out for the vigor.

    what are you guys thinking????

    • Waiting for some solid specs on both before I make my decision…

  • Guest

    Considering the Bionic is going to be an average, even outdated phone by the time it finally launches, the Vigor doesn’t seem like a bad thing to wait for anymore.

    I was really expecting more from Moto given the delays. Bigger screen, better resolution, maybe a fingerprint scanner, even a 1.2 or better processor.

    Hey whats the deal with the 2 blurry columns? what are we missing, if anything…

  • Anyone find it funny that this is on a basic spreadsheet that any 12 year old could create?

    • Anonymous

      that’s because it was done by a no-sense exec paper pusher or their assistant….

  • Interstellarmind

    any one know what the blurred out columns could be? kellex?

  • Doesn’t matter–if the GSII has a keyboard, and looks as ugly as that one that leaked a few weeks back–count me out. I’ll just wait until 2012 for a new phone.
