Time frame for new Verizon phones
Today, we received some information from an inside tipster about Verizon's upcoming phone launches. First off is the HTC Thunderbolt, which is said to still be on-track for a release by the middle of this month, making it the first 4G LTE smartphone out of Verizon's gates.

The Thunderbolt has HTC's newest Sense UI layered over Android 2.2 Froyo, and comes with a 4.3" WVGA display, Snapdragon 1GHz processor, 8MP rear camera with a 1.3MP front camera for video chats, and comes with 8GB of internal memory and a pre-installed 32GB microSDHC memory card.

Also said to be released in Q1 is the HTC Droid Incredible 2 (which might be a global world phone this time around) and the Samsung 4G LTE smartphone (model i520), that will feature a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus WVGA display, 1GHz processor, and an 8MP rear camera with a 1.3MP front camera. 

Then for Q2 (April-June) we're told that there will be the RIM BlackBerry Monaco a.k.a. Storm 3 (without a "click" screen) and BlackBerry Montana  a.k.a Bold Touch 9900.

Also due out later in Q2 is the Motorola DROID BIONIC, with its dual-core 1GHz Tegra Nvidia processor and impressive 4.3" qHD 540 x 960 resolution display, and the LG Revolution.
