Leaked Verizon Roadmap Spills the Dates of New Phones

leaked Verizon roadmap

A new roadmap of releases has been leaked showing off what we can expect from Verizon over the next few months, and while most of them we knew were coming, at least now we’re getting some dates for them as well.  Oddly this came out through IGN, a site best known for its gaming news, but a leaked roadmap is a leaked roadmap.

The first thing that leaps out at us is Sept. 8th will be a busy day at Verizon stores across the country.  Besides three phones dropping that day, it also looks like the Motorola Xoom will finally be available with 4G LTE support.  That’s only a few months late, if you think of seven months as a “few.”  Also coming up that day is the Samsung Stratosphere – which some believe is the Verizon name for the Samsung Galaxy S II – , a previously unknown BlackBerry Curve 9370 and the long gestating Droid Bionic.

Three weeks later will see the Samsung Illusion, formally known as the Samsung Viper and the HTC Bliss as well as the Casio C781 which we don’t know much about.

The HTC Vigor, a new handset we only started hearing about the other day, will land on Verizon on Oct. 5th.  This looks like it will be the big monster for the holiday season packing Qualcomm’s latest dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU with Adreno 220 graphics, a 1280 x 720 (720p) display and Android 2.3.4.

Oct. 13th will see the LG Crescendo released and the LG Revolution 2 on Oct. 20th.

The big mysteries?  What the heck is the Samsung Galaxy Tab P8 listed for “November?”  Suspicions run to it being the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, but guess we’ll find out in a few months.  As for the big omission, and not a surprise, no iPhone 5 is listed.  Yeah, we’re not going to discover the release date for that device via a leaked roadmap.

Does anything coming up from Verizon interest you?
