I know everyone is excited to hear something official on the release date for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon Wireless. Although we do have some news, nothing is concrete.
The latest Verizon roadmap (pictured above) shows w/o of 11/21 for the Galaxy Nexus. This can be taken two ways. There is some speculation that it means “web only”, but I think it means “week of”. We’re also told that this document is a work-in-progres so it isn’t final.
Over the weekend we told you that T-Mobile had some devices for a super mega lauch day on November 2nd. Now we have a lot more insight due to a leaked roadmap, plus we have another release the week after.
- Samsung Robin: This is probably the Galaxy Tab Plus which is the replacement for the Galaxy Tab. Pricing will be $299 on contract.
One item to note is they have the dates for the HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II wrong. We are not sure what the reason is, but the rest of the dates appear to be correct. The Amaze 4G and Galaxy S II will both launch on 10/12/11 which was previously announced.
We’re pretty excited here at TA because we likely have a bit of Nexus Prime news on our hands. The Samsung GT-I9250 has just passed WiFi certification today. If the info on a recently leaked Samsung roadmap holds any truths, this is 99.9% the Nexus Prime. It’s coming people, we’re close. If you’ve been out of the Android loop recently, the new Nexus will have a Super AMOLED 1280×720 HD screen, feature Ice Cream Sandwich, and some sort of TI OMAP4 processor rumored to be a 1.5Ghz dual core. This will be the Android to own. Being a Verizon customer, I’ve been denied a Nexus One and Nexus S, but my hopes are high this time.
We do love us some roadmaps around here. Naturally we’re not talking about maps that actually pertain to driving (that’s why we have GPS, after all), but carrier and/or manufacturer release date schedules. Pocketnow has gotten one such roadmap from an unknown source in AT&T and it reveals a few neat tidbits regarding their future phones, some of which will be Android. Among these will be the Samsung Attain (AT&T’s variant of the highly anticipated Galaxy S II), the Motorola MB865 Fuath (expected to be a successor to the Motorola Atrix), the Pantech Nuli P9060 and Onza P7050, and the Huawei Jengu U8652. In addition to the release of the new iPhone and a few Windows Phone 7 models, it’s looking as though AT&T is going to have a pretty competitive lineup. Throw in an (oddly missing) Android HTC or two, and it’s looking pretty well-rounded. For all of you AT&T-ites, what do you think? Is there anything that’s calling your name, or are phones on other carriers looking pretty appealing? Let us know in the comments! A larger image of the document is waiting after the break. Read more
Yesterday there was a leak of a Samsung roadmap for upcoming devices. The roadmap as already been pulled from the reporting website and Samsung is already saying that the information is inaccurate.
The list included a 7-inch Galaxy Tab successor and a pair of devices running Ice Cream Sandwich. The tablet, P6200, is said to have a 7-inch Super AMOLED screen, Honeycomb 3.x, HSPA+, and dual lenses (3MP in the back and 2MP in the front). The P6210 seems to be a WiFi-only version with the same specs.
The GT-I9250 phone sports a 720p 4.65-inch display running ICS with a 5MP camera. No processor was listed here, but it would be surprising to see anything under a dual-core. A whopping 5.29-inch Super AMOLED screen at 720p is touted for second phone, the GT-I9920. This larger companion has a dual-core 1.4 GHz chip, an 8MP camera, and running Gingerbread 2.3. The rest of the list held nothing ground breaking or exciting mostly listing entry level devices.
All of this may be just a bunch of hot air though. Hit the break for Samsung’s statement on the list.
It seems as though T-mobile is toying with us. They have released to the public a roadmap of every device to be released in the next 60 days – but not labeled any of the devices! More confusing still is the fact that we still don’t know which phones are rumored, or true. This must be a guessing game of sorts, to draw interest to the release – and it certainly is working for us.
So what would you guys like to see? We can’t wait for the Samsung Hercules, but this roadmap also includes some new Blackberrys too. Let us know in the comments below.
The guys over at Thisismynext have scooped up a rather juicy piece of news on the Magenta home front and subsequently we aim to do some informing. Among a plethora of devices to be revealed for the remainder of 2011, we’ve sifted and filtered out all of the Android material so you don’t have to. Below is a list of devices that will be released over the next few months (June-Oct) and some speculation of other devices beyond Oct for T-Mobile’s network. Some devices we’re already aware of and some we are not. But you know us, if Android is slapped on that bad boy, we’re going to feed it to you like there ain’t no tomorrow. So lets get to it shall we? Read more
There’s been a lot of news lately surrounding Verizon’s roadmap for their LTE launch. Now, according to inside sources, it looks as though Philadelphia and San Fransisco may be included in initial plans. Big market? Absolutely, but this is a big rollout. Huge, in fact.
What do you think about this? Will Verizon be able to keep quality in such demanding markets? Let us know in the comments!
