Galaxy Nexus, DROID RAZR and HTC Rezound All Launching November 10? (Updated)

At the end of last week we saw Verizon’s newest MAP list that included the Galaxy Nexus and HTC Rezound with a start date of November 10. We stated then that MAP list dates are always “tentative” and try not to put too much into them, but it does give us a date to start planning around. So what if that date now includes the DROID RAZR (DROID HD) as well? Talk about a blockbuster day for Verizon on 11/10 if they actually end up going forward with all three at the same time. Again though, this list does say “tentative” and also still lists the RAZR under its “HD” code name which is a pretty good sign that it is extremely fresh to Big Red’s systems.

We should know more in about two hours when Moto is on stage showing off this thin and powerful beauty.

Update:  We almost missed the bottom half of this document that lists a couple of other interesting tidbits. “SMS Sync for Tablets” and “Prepaid 3G /4G Tablet Pricing” are sort of a big deal as well. Could Verizon be cooking up some sort of SMS app to bring texting from your phone to your tablet? And prepaid tablets is a new idea in the 4G world. You can currently hook up a prepaid deal with an iPad, but not any of the Android tablets.

Cheers ___!

    prepaid 3g/4G tablets? Oh yeah!

    These phones are all beasts on paper…can’t wait to see actual specs. I’ll be getting the Galaxy Nexus with ICS regardless though.

    About time with the prepaid data. Might actually stop me from tethering the free way. The current monthly model is way too much for too little. I don’t want to pay that much monthly, but if I could buy a couple gigs to use for however long I like I would go for it. I don’t need to tether 2 gigs a month. Maybe 2 every 3 months. Options are a good thing. Hopefully they will be smart about this and do it right.

    Just as I thought, i remember when Verizon did a big launch in November for 3 devices at the same time, it was around the time the LG Voyager, Chocolate and Venus launched. they had a huge teaser campaign and each handset launched one week before the other, so each week in November they released a new handset, ending with the LG Voyager near Black Friday.

    I highly doubt all three phones release on the same date. Remember a leaked map a while back said the Stratosphere would launch the same day as the Bionic and that the Vigor would launch October 6th? How did that turn out?

    The sooner the better!! My OG has is knockin on deaths door. I have become so agrevated with it I barely use it.

I hope all these do come out so I can see them all at the store and make my descision. Prob GNex though

      GNex says 4G.  4G on Verizon IS LTE, not to worry.

        Yea, I know it is, I was just wondering why he would bother putting LTE on one and not the others. More OCD on my part – be consistent! haha

    Great day for Verizon. Not as great for Samsung, Moto, and HTC since their phones are going to cannibalize each other’s sales.

    • EC8CH

      well… not so good for Moto or HTC… ;-)

        Yeah, I don’t think I can go for the Rezound.  It’s just too bulky.  I want a thin phone for once.  I went from the likes of the e815 to the Razr Maxx Ve to the Dare to the Storm and now the Thunderbolt.

          Not to mention the piss poor way HTC and Verizon handled the Thunderbolt’s software updates.

        3 year old GPU on a phone that runs a 720p resolution that is graphically accelerated.  Just pray the leak is fake.

          The vigor/rezound has an older gpu than the prime so according to you that will really suck then.

    Why is only one of the three devices labeled with 4G LTE?

        @ Mctypething I think you may be the illiterate one… bro.

        • Mctypething

          Yeah, or maybe I just have a little bit of common sense. All 3 of them say “4G”. Put two and two together and there is a 99.99% chance that means 4G LTE.

          • http://www.facebook.com/chris.dieleman Chris Dieleman

            When he stated, “Why is only one of the three devices labeled with 4G LTE?” he was implying that the other 2 have 4g listed but not LTE.  Your common sense should tell you that he does not have common sense to understand that it is the same thing.
            You on the other hand have common sense, but lack literacy capabilities as his question is 4G vs 4G LTE.

          • Mctypething

            Great post genius. The whole point of my comment was to make fun of the fact that he didn’t have the common sense to realize 4G implied 4G LTE. So, while trying to make yourself look artificially intelligent, you proved my point entirely.

    “We stated then that MAP list dates are always “tentative”…” Any time you use “VZW” and “Date” in the same sentence, “tenative” is assumed… at least it should be. :-)

      If you hold out for a while longer, CM7 is a great option. As long as you do a proper install, (wiping everything you need to and only restoring non system apps), it turns it into a great device again. I want to get the G-Nex but don’t feel like I have to.

      • Jason

        I’m running CM7 on OG with fresh wipe of info and dalvich with only restoring non sytem apps and my screen goes haywire all the time, if I try to do things fast then it just locks up and reboots. Half the time it just sits there frozen and a few minutes go by before it will do something.

          Hardware does degrade over time. Your components probably have heat damage. Proc., RAM, etc.

          +1 for hardware degradation.  I wish they lasted forever, but unfortunately they don’t.

        I actually have been on MIUI since it came out. Not the .604 version b/c I’m limited with time nowadays but there are bugs galore. I may be better off stock rooted but hey it’s almost Prime Time! Thanks Timoh!

      • Anonymous

        As a DX user I am annoyed at the bugs in CM7 and CM7-GB and believe a lot can be attributed to having a encrypted bootloader.  Whether for technical reasons such as having to use second-init or because it resulted in less devs getting involved.  CM7 on a DInc is less buggy.
        So I’m done with Moto devices until they fix the bootloader policy.  If they announce the RAZR will not be encrypted today I would seriously consider over Nexus despite the lack of 720p.  However I think we already used up our hell freeze over surprise of the year with a Nexus device coming to Verizon.

        • Anonymous

          What bugs are you having? I’m still on nightly(104 i think?) 9/29 build date. I don’t believe I’m being ignorant of the bugs I just can’t think of any I’ve been experiencing at the moment.

          • Anonymous

            Well I’m on the GB kernel which delivers better battery life but more bugs, like crashing a lot of video focused apps.  I suppose I could go back to the Froyo version which is much more stable, but that just bothers me there we have to trade off between things like this that other truly supported CM7 devices do not have to put up with.
            Despite my post I’m not upset, I just don’t want to be kicking myself later because they can’t figure our a 2nd-init option for the RAZR due to some new Moto security feature.  Or even if they do figure it out it’ll be year+ after release.

          • Anonymous

            Ah yeah, that makes sense. Don’t get me wrong, I think the fact we even have to use the second init exploit is complete BS, just wanted to let people know there’s an option if they’re fed up with DX-blur but can’t afford a new phone.

        • Andyroo

          Yeah the DX was a massive failure along with every other Motorola device besides the OG DROID on Verizon to date. The Incredible does have a very stable build of CM7 but that’s because it was basically turned into a deve device thanks to Unrevoked. Motorola sucks point blank period!

          • Anonymous

            I think calling DX a massive failure is inaccurate.  It’s a good phone that could have been better with an unlocked bootloader, especially for those who need/want to hold onto it for the full 2 years.

          • Anonymous

            Failure because moto did not unlock the bootloader for you lol. The moto droid devices are the best.
