Verizon's global lineup for Q4 leaked

Verizon's global lineup for Q4 leaked
A leaked Verizon document lays out the carrier's roster of global phones for the present quarter. Thanks to the document, we can now make the assumption that the LG Voyager has made its final journey from feature phone to become a smartphone powered by Android, called the LG enV Pro.

The original clamshell form factor device with the dual screens and the internal QWERTY keyboard had a major Refresh last year. The model was named the LG enV Touch when Verizon could not work out an extension of its deal with headset maker Plantronics to use the Voyager name. The enV Pro is expected to keep the same basic design as the Voyager and enV Touch with Android 2.1 running the show. Like the other devices on the list, this model will support global roaming.

The Motorola DROID 2 Global and the Motorola DROID Pro are both in the lineup. As we reported just the other day, the DROID 2 Global recently showed up on a training system for Verizon reps even though many figured that the introduction of the DROID Pro put the kibosh on the model. The latter device has just been introduced by Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha as an Android model for the businessman. With a 3.1 inch display and a BlackBerry-esque portrait oriented QWERTY keyboard, the unit will ship with Android 2.2. Both models can make calls in 220 countries and support data coverage in 200.

That leaves the HTC Merge. As we told you, the device is expected to launch on November 11th. The "Bing-ed" out handset will be equipped with the second generation Qualcomm 800MHz Snapdragon processor under the hood along with Android 2.2 and global roaming capabilities.

It looks like the carrier's global smartphones for the current quarter are quite a formidable quartet. With a variety of  different form factors, manufacturers and features, globe-tripping Android users should have no problem finding a handset they like from Verizon's lineup.

Unless the Moto super phone decides to miraculously drop in Q4 than Q4 will have been a disappointment, nothing new just a strengthening of the android front. careful moto, if your device doesn't wow me than im moving the windows phone 7

Globe-tripping? I believe the correct term is globe-trotting.

I'm excited about the Droid 2 Global's rumored 1.2 GHz processor. I'm going to sit tight on my eligibility for a discounted upgrade until these phones come out and phonearena reviews them. So is the Storm 3 cancelled or not? I'm still really confused about that.

wtf is the merge about? why on earth do they make midlevel smart phones???? its so, so, so stupid. why would you buy a device with a 800mhz processor when you can pay a little bit more for a 1ghz??

9. Ziemba unregistered

Agree. And because of that, they won't get you, me, or thousands of others to buy it. Bad business move.

4G phones will not start appearing on Verizon until after the 1st of the year. The only devices that will be 4G when the new network launches will be netbooks and modems.
