Verizon LTE comercial boasts December launch; Motorola DROID 2 Global becomes official

If you were watching Sunday Night Football last night, you may have caught Verizon’s first TV spot for its LTE, 4G network. At the end of the spot — which stars an eager consumer getting a Verizon parcel containing a lighting bolt — the screen reads “Coming December 2010.” We’re fairly sure that VZW won’t flip the switch on its next generation network without a little press fanfare; expect to see a Verizon media event announcement in early to mid-December.

Also, Verizon quietly updated its website replacing the three-month old Motorola DROID 2 with the DROID 2 Global. The device is available for $199 with a signed two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate. The only announcement Verizon made was a small entry on its Facebook page touting the device’s ability to operating in over 220 countries — perhaps an effort not to insult those who purchased the original DROID 2?

Verizon Tweet: Palm Pre early next year

vzw-pre-tweet

Oh the soap opera between the Palm Pre and Verizon Wireless — it’s denied, it’s confirmed, it’s tweeted. VZWOffers has reiterated announced that Verizon will indeed have the Pre “early” next year. America’s largest carrier will seemingly have the BlackBerry Storm 2, Motorola Droid, Tour, and Pre in their lineup at the same time — Big Red is starting to show some love for the hardware!

Thanks, Matt!

Amazon press event on Wednesday, big Kindle announcement imminent

Amazon will be hosting yet another press event, this one slated for Wednesday May 6th at 10:30AM ET. In the recent past of course, Amazon press events mean one thing — a Kindle announcement. Ironically, this latest event will be held at Pace University, the historical location of the the New York Times 19th century headquarters and the same company rumored to be working with Amazon on a “big-screen” Kindle designed for newspapers and magazines. We place this rumor in the “highly likely to happen” category and look forward to unveiling Amazon’s latest Kindle offering.
