November 11th to see Verizon launch Palm Pre 2, Motorola DROID Pro and more
November 11th is going to be a busy day for Verizon, if the current speculation pans out. Earlier today, we reported that HP had introduced the Palm Pre 2 and the device is expected to be launched by Verizon on that date. The handset will be equipped with the new webOS 2.0.

Android makes up the balance of the four phones expected to be released on the 11th. Global roaming phones like the Motorola DROID 2 Global, and the Motorola DROID Pro should both be made available that day. The former is a DROID 2 model, sporting a 1.2GHz processor, and support for voice in 220 countries and data in 200. The latter device is a BlackBerry-esque form factor Motorola DROID made for businessmen with a portrait oriented QWERTY keyboard. Both DROID models will ship with Android 2.2 on board, which of course, means Adobe Flash is ready to go on both phones right out-of-the-box.

For smartphone newbies, we have the Motorola CITRUS, an entry-level Android model, made from post-consumer recycled paper and running on Android 2.1. With a 3 inch display and 3MP camera, you will not confuse this unit for any of the DROID handsets.

Is that it? Nope! As we previously told you, the HTC Merge is also expected to launch on November 11th. Another global device, the Merge is competition for the Motorola DROID 2 Global, with a side sliding QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.2 and support for GSM frequencies besides the usual Verizon radio bands. Almost close enough for those two handsets to be twins.

Circle your calendar, or even better, set the calendar on your current handset. Whatever level of smartphone user you are, Verizon will have a new phone for you on November 11th.
