Verizon roadmap leaked Droid Charge, Xperia Play, Incredible 2, and a lot more!

Oh this is nice. For all Verizon customers this is somehow what you want, the network's roadmap being leaked to the internet. The said roadmap reveals when phones, new smartphones, are going to be launched by the Big Red. Some of these devices are the Incredible 2, the Samsung Droid Charge, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, and a lot more.

I will be taking a snippet from DroidLife for the roadmap but the photo above is basically the leaked map from Verizon. DroidLife just made things a lot better by listing the devices and when they are expected to launch.
  • Samsung DROID CHARGE: April 7 (next Thursday) – The 1GHz 4G LTE device we saw at CES, but for some reason still lacked a name. We broke the news on it being called the DROID CHARGE over a week ago, and truthfully, are surprised this phone received the “DROID” tag.
  • Sony [Ericsson] Xperia PLAY: April 14 - The “Playstation” phone that will launch with what we’re hearing is stock Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
  • HTC Incredible 2: April 28 – It’s just the Incredible S from Europe, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be awesome. A bunch of pictures and system images have leaked out already, leaving almost no surprises for us come the 28th.
  • LG Revolution: May 5 – Another of the 4G LTE phones that debuted at CES. It does have one potential trick up its sleeve though; the first Android phone to ship with Netflix support. Guess we’ll know in a month?
  • DROID BIONIC: Some time in May – Ahhh, the phone that people have been waiting so long for. I guess those April rumors that we ignored weren’t so credible? We’ve been hearing May/June since the beginning and this may have just confirmed that.
  • DROID X2: Some time in May – While we were huge fans of the first DROID X, this phone looks like it may be one giant bust. A tiny processor upgrade, more RAM, and a slightly nicer screen isn’t going to bring out the crowds like the original. Possibly 4G?
  • Samsung Galaxy S2: Some time in May – Should be a beast of a phone, but Fascinate owners will tell you to run screaming from it. Possibly 4G?

So there you have it guys. These series of launches will definitely be a good one! All are basically running on the Android platform and the range of manufacturers is amazing, basically all major phone manufacturers have their own bets here.
