    Default September 8!!! (new leaked map)

    Leaked Verizon Roadmap Reveals Potential Launch Dates for Stratosphere, Vigor, Bionic and More - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    new leaked map

    Droid Bionic - level 1 launch (whatever that means) on Sept 8



    DROID Bionic: (9/8 launch) – You already know everything about this device, don’t you?
    Samsung Stratosphere: (9/8 launch) – 4G LTE device running Android 2.3
    HTC Vigor: (10/6 launch) – Will replace the HTC Thunderbolt
    LG Revolution 2: (10/20 launch) – Will replace the original Revolution
    Samsung Galaxy Tab P8 (November launch) – Could be the 8.9″ Galaxy Tab?
    Samsung Illusion: (9/29 launch) – 3G smartphone running Android 2.3
    HTC Bliss: (9/29 launch) – Lower end Android 2.3 device; the chick phone?
    Motorola XOOM 4G LTE: (9/8 launch) – Assuming this is the date that the 4G LTE upgrade starts.

    stratosphere and bionic on the same day! vigor one month later which is a tbolt replacement

    decisions, decisions..

    I'm confused by the 'Original Name' field for the Samsung Stratosphere saying 'Aegis', becuase i'm pretty sure the Aegis is a notebook, yet the comments show it as a 4G Smartphone.

    Kinda odd that some things are bold/blue and some aren't, i dunno. I'll believe it for now. lol

    Make sure if you are not SURE you want to keep the Bionic to buy it from CostCo or some place that has a return policy that extends out far enough. VZW's 14 days will make you angry

    Really They're gonna launch the HTC Vigor, the 1.5 ghz dual core phone on 10/6 less than month after the Bionic?

    This may not be concrete but two things catch my attention. 1.) If this sammy device is the physical keboard and not the slim GS2 that people want then there isn't anything else coming to vzw from sammy for the remainder of the year. 2.) The nexus device isn't shown on here..
    So no slim GS2 and no nexus for rest of year? Interesting, if its up to htc vigor vs bionic or slider keyboard sammy as my only choices then bionic may still get my business.

    I wouldn't touch that phone with a 10ft pole. Not a fan of the Snapdragons, HTC battery life, and the battery life of a 1.5GHz processor/720p screen/LTE. Sammy and Moto are gonna be fighting for my money. Assuming that's the SGSII, of course.

    i wouldn't read that leak so restrictively. i'm sure devices can always be added to the list. if we were to take your reading, that would mean that VZW, the nation's biggest carrier, will release zero phones and one tablet during the entire holiday season?!? that's a pretty unrealistic conclusion, imo.

    I may wait till the end of September. That will give everyone time to test out the Moto and Samsung phones, before I consider the Vigor.

    Finally a concrete release date for these phones. I for one will not be buying a Stratosphere unless they really wow me with something. Not waiting for the Vigor, cool idea with all these gnarly specs, but I've been waiting on gnarly specs from the Bionic. That's all I want, and I agree with irl Panda that HTC consistently has some pretty terrible battery life. The phones usually are great, but the battery life is what really was keeping me on Motorola's boat.

    Seriously, no HTC phone has ever done well with a battery. Here is one with dual core 1.5's, a graphics gpu, and a great screen. Are we going to have to wear a battery pack on our backs?

    joking aside, you make a good point - if this were to be VZW's map for all devices for the end of the year, then that would lead us to conclude that VZW won't get the iP5, or that it's not coming out before the end of the year - neither of which is likely. so, this should not in any way be used as an indicator that other devices (like the GS2 or Prime) won't be coming before the end of the year.

    Why is everybody so excited that this is the "concrete" release dates? Another picture from "Verizon;" how do we know this is the final one???

    You think Apple would let Verizon announce the date of the IPhone 5... I don't think so.

    I'm interested in what this Stratosphere model really is. You remember the article that Sammy sent a GSII into the stratosphere. Also some people/reporters received a telescope concerning the GSII.

    Honestly I don't think it could be GSII because I don't think they can fit an LTE chip in it without totally changing the form factor.

    Apple dictates when, how, where and who makes announcements..

    Verizon: So Apple we are going to release your phone on October 8 2011 sound good?

    Apple: Sound good?

    Verizon: (with huge grin) yeah does it sound good?

    Apple: SHUT THE HELL UP AND GET OUT OF HERE!!! YOU DON"T RUN THE SHOW WE DO!!! NOW GET OUT!!

    Verizon: Gosh I'm sorry..please don't be mad at us. We were just..

    Apple: I said SHUT UP AND GET OUT!!!

    Verizon: Ok sorry, we are leaving. We didn't mean to upset you...Ok I'm going now....ok bye

    Verizon leaves

    Apple: (to himself) idiots

    That's the problem. This isn't a Verizon announcement. Its a leak and who knows how accurate it is. But people don't seem to learn and consider anything like this as an actual announcement from the company. Then when things don't unfold as written here, people complain about delays. When will we learn? smh

    "level one launch" ???
    Could this mean Verizon is actually going to advertise the Bionic?

    That was my thought seeing upgraded to level one launch. Looks like vz is rolling out the "red" carpet for bionic. Yes pun was intended.
