    Default Any educated guesses on what flagship devices Verizon will likely release between April and August?

    Any educated guesses on what flagship devices Verizon will likely release between April and August?

    Android or iOS. (yes, I'm perfectly willing to move to iOS camp if Apple comes up with a big-*** 1080p resolution phone)

    Best guesses would be HTC One successor, Samsung S5, LG G3, LG G Pro 2, Sony Z something and much more towards the August side of things, Moto Droid Maxx & Moto X2 successors, along with the iPhone 6.

    Thanks! I can't believe I completely forgot about the Samsung Galaxy S5. It will probably be out in May or June, right?

    I expect it earlier than that, I heard somewhere it would be out in March/April, I think it was an article on Yahoo.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    that's perfect timing for me! I have a line becoming upgrade eligible in April, another one in May... then two more in December.

    Since you mentioned a timeframe of April to August, the iPhone has historically been released in September.

    I do expect the next HTC one, the Galaxy S5, and the next Droid variants, as mentioned, although possibly Motorola may have finished the Droid line. I wouldn't be surprised to see the next Moto X as well, but with it soon to be released in Europe in only February, it might be too soon and they could wait until Autumn.

    When did the Droid MAXX get released? I just became eligible for an upgrade yesterday. If my RAZR MAXX didn't lag so much, I wouldn't even think about getting a new phone. Considering upgrading to the Droid MAXX, but I might hold off a bit for it's successor. If Motorola is on a once a year upgrade schedule....

    Given Sony's struggles breaking through in the US market, I don't expect a Sony phone on Verizon.

    2014 Nexus on Verizon is 100% dependant on how far VoLTE gets, IMO. If there is a 2015 Nexus, I can't think of a reason it wouldn't work, even if it's as a bring your own device.

    The current N5 is compatible with Verizon network. Regardless if the N5 2014 support VoLTE, it's still up to Verizon to allow the device to activate on their network and not block Google Wallet or other services from working, like that did in the past. I don't trust them enough to be positive about it. If the device is not under their control, they don't want it in their network.

    I think I'm under the impression that cdma is what allows them to white list IMEI, etc. If I'm mistaken then there is no hope for Verizon and volte is pretty pointless until its multicarrier and universal, about 5 years from now.

    Volte will be helpful because then the Nexus won't need to use cdma to use their network. Why does it matter if other carriers use it?

    yes, you are correct. As long as CDMA is a part of their network, you can't get on their network with a device unless the IMEI of the device is in their database and they have to approve a device for it to get in their database.

    HTC one successor, S5, G3 ( not sure they will get the g pro since they passed on original and its not a huge seller like the note) maybe a new moto, a few droids

    It works now though right? They may drag their feet, but if it eventually gets on their network, that's all that really matters.

    Do you guys think that the cut in price today of the MAXX to $99 and the Ultra to free signals new DROID phones may be coming in the near future?

    I do not. I think it has more to do with Verizon sales than with device pipelines.

    well the GNote3 is on special for $150 down from $300 and I am certain the GNote4 is not coming until the fall.
