Hungry for more Android on Verizon? A leaked roadmap reportedly shows Verizon’s offerings into next year. Here's what's listed:
- Expect another Droid out this year. The new device, dubbed the Droid Pro, will have a 4-inch screen, 1.3 GHz CPU, and will be a world phone.
- Motorola is also working on another global device that is said to be similar to the Motorola Q, but features a full touchscreen.
- HTC and Samsung will also release new global phones.
- Samsung is finishing up a 7-inch tablet with a front-facing camera
- Motorola’s rumored 10-inch tablet appears to either be suited with a 1.0 or 1.3 Ghz processor, will also have a front-facing camera and come with Android 3.0 (Gingerbread).
- The Verizon contact said that the inclusion of Gingerbread will delay the device (we're likely to see it in February)
- Verizon’s aim is to have 75 percent of the country covered in LTE by April 2012
- Novatel is releasing its own LTE MiFi device early next year that will support 10 users at once
- The Verizon source has also leaked out that LTE pricing will be at $59.99/month, though they did remind that there may be data allowances
Verizon's rumored commitment to providing a global phone to customers is great news. By providing a world phones (which have been sorely missing on Android) for travelers, its network seems even more attractive. A whole lot of speculation at this point, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t intrigued (and salivating a little bit) by these rumored devices. [BGR]
