A recently leaked Verizon Wireless roadmap shows the potential launch dates of many different devices, and while we don’t know how legitimate these dates are, they sound on track with previous rumors. September 8th seems to be a big day for Verizon, according to the roadmap. The Motorola Droid Bionic, Samsung Stratosphere (Galaxy S II), BlackBerry Curve 9370 (with 4G LTE), and the 4G LTE Motorola Xoom are all expected to drop that day. We’ve been hearing for quite some time that the Droid Bionic will launch in early September and that the Galaxy S II would launch right around there as well. Interestingly, the 4G LTE Xoom will be available that Thursday, but the upgrade to 4G LTE for current Xoom owners could occur a week earlier.
On September 29th, the Samsung Illusion (3G with Android 2.3), the HTC Bliss (Android 2.3), and the Verizon Adamant (succeeds the Salute as a feature phone) are all expected to launch. On October 5th, the HTC Thunderbolt successor — the HTC Vigor — is expected to launch with 4G LTE goodness. About two weeks later on October 20th, the LG Revolution 2, which obviously succeeds the original Revolution, will launch. Lastly, we’re hearing that the Samsung Galaxy Tab P8 is going to launch sometime in November as a 4G LTE tablet. Since Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab 8.9 in the near future, we’re thinking this could be the Verizon Wireless branded version.
Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait until the official announcement from Verizon to know how legitimate these dates are.
