Woo boy. Boy Genius Report has supposedly got hold of Verizon's 2010/2011 roadmap, outlining all sorts of exciting stuff coming down the VZW pipeline: a 1.3GHz, 4-inch Motorola Droid Pro, global Androids from Samsung and HTC, and a Motorola tablet with Android 3.0.
The roadmap covers the rest of 2010 through early 2012, with the earlier products presumably being more concrete than some of the later ones. But it's all droolworthy stuff, starting with the Droid Pro, a 4-inch, 1.3GHz Android phone with global roaming, pegged for release in November. That's just one of many Android phones slated for release over the next year, including global devices from Samsung and HTC.
And then, of course, there are the tablets. The juiciest, according to Boy Genius Report, is Motorola's:
Samsung is working on a 7″ screen Android tablet with front-facing camera. Motorola is also working on a tablet as well, except it will sport a 10″ screen, either 1GHz or 1.3GHz CPU, front-facing camera, and Android 3.0. Don't expect the Motorola so soon though, as we're informed that while the launch was supposed to happen in December, Android 3.0 will probably hold up the release of that device and we should expect it around February 2011.
The roadmap also suggests that Verizon is on track to provide LTE coverage to 75 per cent of the country by April 2012. Data plans will supposedly stay at $US59.99 a month for LTE service and a Novatel LTE MiFi will be reportedly be available in early 2011, supporting up to 10 Wi-Fi users.
