Verizon Wireless has a blockbuster smartphone and tablet lineup planned ahead of the holiday shopping season this year according to a purported leaked roadmap. Published on Wednesday by IGN, the roadmap reveals numerous previously unheard of devices. While details are scarce for the time being, several highly anticipated phones are mentioned on the document as well, alongside launch dates. The following are highlights from the document along with launch dates and some available details:

  • September 8th: Samsung Stratosphere (presumably Verizon’s Galaxy S II) — 4G LTE, Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • September 8th: Motorola DROID BIONIC
  • September 8th: BlackBerry Curve 9370 — 4G LTE
  • September 8th: 4G Motorola XOOM
  • September 29th: Samsung Illusion — Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • September 29th: HTC Bliss — Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • October 5th: HTC Vigor — replaces the HTC Thunderbolt
  • October 20th: LG Revolution 2 — replaces the LG Revolution
  • November: Galaxy Tab P8 — 4G LTE

The document also mentions a Samsung Plato, though it says the device’s launch has been delayed until January, and it states that Verizon will launch RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook at a date to be determined. None of this is confirmed for the time being, though if accurate, Verizon Wireless subscribers can expect quite a lineup this fall straight through to the holidays.
