It’s a sad day when a device you’ve loved or owned is about to be “End of Lifed” (EOL), I can remember when I first read that Sprint was EOL-ing the EVO 4G. I loved that phone and it sad to see it go. But, with some many
android devices flooding the market, Carriers have to make room some how.
With the incoming of the completely outed and yet unannounced DROID 4, we knew that Verizon would not be keeping the DROID 3 on the shelves much longer, and so it looks like January will be the devices final month. That must mean we’ll be seeing the DROID 4 in about a month or so to pick up the slack.
Joining the DROID 3 on the way out, is the LG Revolution, the second 4G LTE phone released on Verizon. Much like the DROID 3 being replaced, we know that Verizon prepping the LG Spectrum, a new LTE device with a HD display that should take over the spot left by the Revolution. While nothing has been said about a concrete release date for the Spectrum, with CES around the corner, we fully expect to hear about a DROID 4 and Spectrum release.
As for non-android devices, we’re hearing that Verizon is also dropping the Axe on the BlackBerry Curve 3G, Palm Pre 2, and all of its Mi-Fi hotspot as well as its Novatel and Samsung LTE Jetpacks and finally ZTE Fivespot. When all is said and done, Verizon will not have any LTE hotspot devices, so I think it is safe to assume that at CES, Verizon will be ushering in a new wave of devices.
Note* Keep in mind this is all from a “tipster” and nothing is confirmed at this moment. But we aren’t going to argue with The Verge and its sources.
