Launch dates for Verizon's LG Cayman and DROID Fighter leak

Launch dates for Verizon's LG Cayman and DROID Fighter leak
Back during the tail end of last month,a leaked screenshot of Verizon's upcoming workshop dates revealed a pair of mystery handsets, the LG Cayman and the DROID Fighter. The dates listed for the two models workshops, March 29th and April 12th respectively, were actually the launch dates for the duo, according to the new leak.

Not much is known about these two models. The LG Cayman could be the LG Lucid 4G which, as we told you the other day, appears to be a mid-range Android model. No manufacturer is listed for the DROID Fighter and our original thesis was that this could be the HTC Fireball aka the HTC DROID Incredible 3 aka the HTC DROID Incredible 4G.  But the leaked Verizon computer screenshot also shows the HTC Fireball being a separate phone which throws all of our guesswork out of the window. So the bottom line there is that the DROID Fighter remains a total mystery-for now.

You might have noticed the Samsung Plato on the list. That particular model came up in an August 2011 roadmap for Verizon with an expected January launch that obviously never happened. This could be another mid-range Android model from the Korean based manufacturer.

Droid Fighter is a good name, full of kickass implications. I hope they keep it as its official name.

I hope the DROID Fighter is a Motorola superphone. I'm holding off from upgrading for the next gen phones and I am partial to Motorola thanks to my DX1.

Maybe the Droid Fighter is Sammys Galaxy S III. We can only hope.

It's not surprising that the HTC Fireball might be its own phone rather than a sequel to the droid incredible series. If anything it's probably a sequel to the HTC Thunderbolt since they're both elemental objects and there's parallelism there
