Android fever has hit Verizon Wireless, which is reportedly preparing to launch several Android-powered devices including the Motorola Droid Pro and the LG enV Touch 2.
A Verizon Wireless spokeswoman declined to confirm the phones release, saying We dont pre-announce our phones.
However, a leaked roadmap detailing the carriers plans for the rest of 2010 and further down the road reveal the Droid Pro may see possible release in November, as well as another Motorola device in the works that will run Android 2.2, according to website Boy Genius Report.
The Droid Pro will reportedly have a 1.3 GHz CPU, a 4-inch screen and global roaming capabilities, thanks to a GSM/HSPA radio.

A forum thread discussing the Pro and what it might have:
I can’t wait to leave AT&T. My Android phone, which I waited forever for them to get, is so locked down by them. The other carriers have real Android phones. All AT&T has is the boring iPhone and locked down Android phones. My friends have Android phones that are really pushing the envelope. The Droid-X wireless hotspot for up to 10 users is great on Verizon’s network. A guy at a bar opened his up for us last night.
If I had sense, I would have held out for the G2’s coming out this fall, or jumped onto one of the other offerings, but I like my keyboards, and I love stable and reliable phones that just plain work. Didn’t have to root this one to make it functional, but love the added features that I have now that I did.
Are they sending the upgrade through the air?
I have the original Mytouch, Froyo is supposed to be coming soon, I’m just curious if they are officially upgrading your MT slide now, if so, mine should be coming soon.
The more I read about this... the More I think that maybe Verizon is the problem.
What if, a year ago, the ATT exclusive DID expire and Apple went to Verizon and for the 2nd time, Verizon, thinking they had this game made with Android, told Apple to kiss off?
Maybe Verizon is “emotionally” invested in being right and hasn’t “liked” the company line about “how dumb they were to pass on the iPhone”?
What would this mean? Would it mean they would reject the iPhone or the terms and Apple would see that their profits with ATT are good enough and just stay as is in America?
Afterall, Apple has everyone else, everywhere else? Why Verizon?
Could the CMDA iPhone be Sprint who is lagging and could the Verizon vs et al, be the new game?
Google and Verizon and Android vs Apple, ATT, Sprint and the iPhone?
