Multiple Verizon device, plan launches tipped in leaked image? [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Today's the day where we expect to learn more about a pair of high-profile Android phones headed to Verizon's shelves (DROID RAZR, Galaxy Nexus), including when they'll be hitting store shelves and your pockets. For those of you that just can't wait for the events to kick off, though, a new image containing details on the potential launch dates of both aforementioned devices as well as an HTC-made handset has emerged. Sent over to the folks at Droid-Life, the photo shows that Verizon may be planning to launch the DROID RAZR (codenamed DROID HD), Galaxy Nexus, and HTC Rezound on November 10th.
There are also some interesting non-device launches detailed on the above image. First up is the mention of "New Messaging Bundles" coming on November 13th, which is something that all of the texting machines out there may want to keep an eye out for. There's also "SMS Sync for Tablets" on the 13th, suggesting that Verizon may be planning some sort of way for users to access their texts on a tablet as well as a phone. Finally, we've got "Prepaid 3G / 4G Tablet Pricing" on November 17th. Currently the only prepaid tablet in Verizon's lineup is the 3G-only iPad, so it sounds like Big Red may finally be getting around to adding 4G Android tablets/plans to its prepaid stable.
As the image above clearly states, all of these launch dates are tentative, meaning you should probably just pencil them in on your calendar for the time being. That said, this isn't the first time we've heard that the RAZR, Nexus, and Rezound could be landing on November 10th. The good news is that, as mentioned before, more on the RAZR and Nexus will be revealed later today, so stay tuned for that. It looks like November is shaping up to be a big month for you, Verizon folk. Which of the big three Android phones are you most excited for?
UPDATE: Verizon and Motorola have made the DROID RAZR official, saying that it'll be launching sometime in "early November."
