Lots of Android on Verizon's leaked roadmap

Verizon's roadmap through 2011 gets leaked on the Web. And thanks to CNET's own Verizon tipster, we're able to expand on those tidbits with additional information.

Boy Genius offered a load of dish Monday on Verizon Wireless' roadmap through 2010 and 2011. Some of the rumored devices we've heard about already , but not everything has been discussed before. According to the tipster, Verizon will have a Motorola Droid Pro global phone by November, two other global handsets from Samsung and HTC, a Moto Android device that will resemble the company's long-departed Q smartphone, and Android-powered tablets from Motorola and Verizon. And on the 4G front, Boy Genius predicts that Verizon will have LTE service across 75 percent of the country by April 2012 and that LTE data pricing will start at $59.99 per month

Seriously, that's juicy stuff and it all sounds very probable. And thanks to CNET's own Verizon tipster, we're able to expand on Boy Genius' tidbits with additional information.

  • The HTC global Android phone should have the name "Lucerno." I didn't get any further details on the Samsung tablet.

  • The Motorola Droid 2 will finally make its debut by August 20.
