Verizon is certainly making headlines with all of its latest Android devices, but whether or not Big Red launches the iPhone, it will have enough high-end devices to make its customers forget about the iPhone. The Motorola Droid 2 hasn’t even launched yet and we’re already talking about the possibility of another Droid device launching in November aptly named the Droid Pro. The Droid Pro is rumored to feature a 4 inch touch screen, 1.3 GHz processor, and global roaming. Not sure which version of Android it will launch with, but my guess is Android 2.2. Again, the Droid Pro is rumored to launch November 2010.

Motorola has another Android phone up its sleeve in the form of a revamped Motorola Q. The phone will bear similarities to the Motorola Q, but will feature Android 2.2 and a new MOTOBLUR skin. No word on the expected launch for this device. HTC and Samsung are also set to get in on the Android action by launching a world phone sometime in the near future for Verizon.

In terms of tablets, Samsung and Motorola will launch a 7 inch and 10 inch tablet, respectively. For the 10 inch Motorola tablet, it is rumored to run Android 3.0, 1GHz/1.3GHz processor, front facing camera, and should launch in February 2011. Details on the Samsung Android tablet are scant, but since it only has a 7 inch screen, it should be relatively affordable.

In terms of LTE development, Verizon hopes to cover 75% of the States in LTE by 2012. A new MiFi device available in January or February will have the capacity to connect up to ten users simultaneously. The LTE data plan will probably cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $59.99 a month.

Verizon certainly knows how to get its customer base excited, because I personally can’t wait to see what the fall and winter seasons bring.
