Release Dates for Verizon’s DROID Fighter and LG Lucid 4G

A couple of weeks ago, we first reported two new devices that were headed to Verizon as the LG Cayman and DROID Fighter. That report included the same dates you are seeing above of 3/29 for the Cayman and 4/12 for the Fighter, but were then only listed as “workshop” times rather than release dates. According to new information that we received, those are indeed targeted release dates.

We should point out that the LG Cayman is likely the Lucid 4G that we reported on last night. The DROID Fighter is still a mystery for now.

You will also see the HTC Fireball listed without a date, a device that our sources are now referring to as the Incredible 4G. A device by the name of Samsung Plato is listed as well, and is one we haven’t seen mentioned since last August. Knowing that it was rumored all of the way back then, we would be surprised if this was anything other than a mid-range device. Then again, “Plato” would be a nice codename for a Galaxy type device.

While Verizon was quiet during MWC (which they almost always are), they do still have plans for the next couple of months. The first part of March could be slow unless they decide to drop the Incredible 4G on is within the next couple of weeks.

Cheers ___!

    Plato was a philosopher, mathematician, writer….  Could we be looking at the fabled, “Galaxy Journal”??? The VSW version of the Note?

    • LocBox

      I was waiting for this to be said….Has everyone forgotten about the Journal?

      It is coming.

    Fighter? Man, I hope that’s not the final name. {{v_v}}

    The “Droid” brand has officially gotten boring. Thanks MOTO and Verizon for running a ONCE great name into the ground!!

    the problem with droids is that they release phones that dont work like the are supposed to, example, bionic,thunderbolt, galzxy nexus etc etc,, this is where apple kills them,an apple phone does what its supposed to right out of the box,where as android phones are released,then it takes months and months to get the updates to make them do what they should have been able to do from day one,by the time you they get the updates out, its months later and new phones are out,this is common sense,and droid makers just dont get that, droids should be killing apple,but never will as long as this continues

    • bsteen

      Agree completely. I have an Andoid phone because I want it to do things that an iPhone won’t. Everyone else in my family now has an iPhone and they love it because they simply work the way they are supposed to. If there’s something that they can’t do correctly they don’t even try. For some people (hell, millions and millions and millions of people), that’s what they want.

      • CharlesHussell

        is that why they had to start giving away rubber bands for their customers to put around their antenna when the 4 first came out?

        Id be bored out of my mind with an OS that just sat there waiting for me to open an app.  I hope to god it works, it isn’t doing half of what android is.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Buck/100003482949493 Joe Buck

          no.doing more and doing it better,but droid could do more if it worked, and it shouldnt be this way

    • EdubE24

      After the thunderbolt and the bionic I gave up. I miss the hell out of Android and flashing roms, but crappy phones pushed me away. Even after reading all the negatives on the Nexus I still went in to purchase it. But after seeing the back being held on by duct tape I just couldn’t pull the trigger. So for now I have the 4S and will sell it when something that works out the box comes along. It seems strange that the newer phones are the worst. My OG Droid and Incredible were awesome!!!

  • Guest

    You buy your cell phone based on the NAME they call it????

    I like to get the *FEATURES* I desire, instead.

     

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Joe-Buck/100003482949493 Joe Buck

    what makes the difference when they are released, it will be 4 to 5 months later till the work like they are supposed to

  • 4n1m4L

    Am I the only one who feels the Droid brand has lost its steam?

    • Jackhound

      The problem is you took it seriously to begin with. The only “droid” that wasn’t just some device elsewhere in the world was the Incredible(well that and the droid pro but that’s on Sprint now as the XPRT), and even that was internally the same device as the Evo 4g, minus the wimax, and with a smaller body.
      All it is and all it ever was was marketing.

      • http://twitter.com/jonathanM21 Jonathan

        That’s not the problem. The Droid brand was made up of premium devices, heavily marketed to be aspirational and legitimately compete with iPhone. It didn’t matter that they’re available elsewhere in the world.

        Now Droid means “new phone released this week.” Commercials have gone from smart and strategic to “POWER!” “MORE POWER!” “MOST POWERFUL YET!” “TOO POWERFUL TO FALL INTO THE WRONG HANDS!”

        The brand means nothing anymore.

        • OhAaron

          Obviously you haven’t seen the new Razr Maxx commericals:

        • Jackhound

          So you’re saying that the good thing about the Droid line was that the devices were good, but the problem with it now is that you don’t like the ads. Sure, that sounds reasonable…

          How can the “brand” have ever meant anything in the first place when it was available else where the whole time? Whats the benefit of Droid branding on the Incredible, when essentially the same hardware was available as the Evo 4G, the Nexus One, etc.? There’s nothing exclusive about it, the droid tag didn’t add any features. It was just another marketing exercise for their simply competitive lineup.

          Whether you like the new ads or not they don’t change what the devices are or were, and the new droids are positioned in exactly the same way the old ones were.

      i could stand be bored, but this damn nexus doesnt work that good,twice yesterday the mic cut off during calls

    ooh a shot of a paper that anyone could make anywhere. how exciting.

  • http://www.facebook.com/LuisElTiburon Luis Rojas

    What if the Samsung Plato isnt a mid range Galaxy phone, but the Galaxy SII?!?!?!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

      I doubt they are bringing the GSII to Verizon.  They already passed on it once for the Galaxy Nexus and we are now months away from the GSIII.

    • Jacob121791

      hopefully its not the S2….

  • http://www.facebook.com/LuisElTiburon Luis Rojas

    Droid Figher is a Razr Maxx HD with a 13mp cam…..

    • Floto

      Even after the 1000th time, that joke was so funny I forgot to laugh…

  • Michael_NM

    Droid Fighter must be the codename for the iPhon’t 5.

  • http://twitter.com/droseum20 Daniel Rose

    samsung plato could be the device samsung was talking about launching in april…

  • Flip74k

    Droid fighter aka Droid 4 maxx lol

  • Paul

    Wonder who’s making the DROID FIGHTER. Figured it would be known by now.

    • Zippitydoodah!

      It’s on a list of internal HTC code names. http://pocketnow.com/android/huge-htc-codename-list-revealed

      • OhAaron

        So could it be the One X?

        • http://twitter.com/55938 MrSix

          I would imagine that’s quite a ways off, but it would be nice…

        • Adam

          i sure hope so. I love the way the one x looks and the specs. I hope your right 

  • GNEX(MOTOX)

    so now the spectrum/ and or r2 have a star fighter to use! :) XP. lolz.. the vz commercial.. spectrum vs R2… LOLZ..

  • Ror1997

    Calling it now, 
    Samsung Plato- Slim phone, 4 inch screen, 5mp cam, 1.3 front cam. Ginger bread :( Dual core 3G- Mid Range
    LG Cayman- 4G, Dual core, 4inch screen with 5mp cam, 1.3 front facing Ginger bread :( -Affordable 4G phone
    Droid Fighter- Its going to be the first Quad core phone in the Droid series. Ships with 4.0 12mp cam 1.3 front facing. With a name that says Droid Fighter, Im thinking its a direct rival incase of an iPhone 5 annoncement- Made by HTC or Samsung- Next flagship phone, but will prob ship in Late april, early may
    And im pretty sure the ZTE V66 is a affordable tablet after a quick google search

    • GNEX(MOTOX)

      no more gingerbreads so im saying no. ics also remember they said all future smartphones have to be 4g… therefore your prediction is wrong..

      • Ror1997

        Spectrum 4G just launched with GB…
        And they said they want to try to make all phones 4G. I bet when iPhone 5 comes out it will be 3G and verizon will still promote as much as the GNex

        • evltwn

          The next iPhone isn’t dropping until the fall and will most certainly be a 4G phone. If it doesn’t those isheep will be pissed, but they’ll still buy it because it’s an iPhone.

          • RAZR FANN

            It will probably be released in the summer. Android phones will already be way ahead of it though, as usual. 

          • CharlesHussell

            yeah right, those dummies will be running around telling everyone they are on 5g because they have an iPhone 5.

          • evltwn

            Haha, I bet ur right.

          • LocBox

            Hes extremely right smh

          • EdubE24

            Kind of like the people who have android phones and call them Droids, same dummies, just different phones!!

        • HTC is Love!

          Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s still 3G think about it…  It’s Apple.  I wonder how many lawyers have gotten more rich in the last 5 years…  

      • Android1997

        lol i got the LG Cayman 100% right. 
        And Samsung Plato is way off. Plato was a philosopher, mathematician, writer therefore this is the galaxy note renamed the journal.
        Only on this article because of this

    • RobG

      I think the Droid Fighter is that prototype HTC lef in a bar… Incredible 4G Dual Core 1GB ram 16GB flash memory 8MP camera

  • Pmagent2013

    Do we know who made the droid fighter? Moto, HTC, Samsung, Lg?

    • balthuszar

      oh geez…people are going to read your comment as “the droid fighter is a moto device!” and the comment stream will fill up with “what about moto saying they were going to release less devices this year?”

      • RashadGattis

         My guess is that it’s LG’s first ‘Droid’ device

        You want a cookie? No need to post it twice, bro.

      • RichardGaetaSr

        I could be mistaken Droid Fighter is already out in China. Made by Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD with either 12 mp camera. Dual Core not quad core.

        • RichardGaetaSr

          Whats even more BS is The Droid Fighter was supposed to be released yesterday 4-12-2012 Fail!

    • RichardGaetaSr

      moto is basically RAZR maxx with bigger screen 4.6 and a 13 mp camera
