Entourage to release Pocket Edge in November

iPhoneArena got their hands on Verizon's device schedule for the second half of 2010. Guess what was listed for November:

Sometime during the second or third week of November, Big Red is said to push the Launch button for the enTourage eDGe (a dual-screen ereader + tablet Android device), as well as an enTourage Pocket device.

I don't have any details from Entourage yet, but I can confirm that Entourage took out a trademark for the term Pocket Edge back in May. (At least we know that  it exists.) Also, so far as I can tell it hasn't made it through the FCC yet.

I'm working on it.

Verizon upcoming phones – 10MP Android, Storm 3, two tablets and more by the end of the year

Verizon upcoming phones â?? 10MP Android, Storm 3, two tablets and more by the end of the year

We have obtained some exclusive Verizon-related information from a trusty source that leads us to believe the carrier is gearing up for some quite intriguing launches later this year. There are many devices involved in this, with a bit of valuable info for each one. Still, keep in mind as you're reading that these release dates are not 100% certain, since, you know... unpleasant stuff happens such as delays, change of plans, etc.

September:
To start with, in September we should see a global-ready World Edition of the Motorola DROID 2, which will come in the same black/blue color scheme available now, as well as white. Yep, you heard that right – the first global Android smartphone is on the way!

The other interesting September launch will present us with the youth-oriented Motorola Citrus WX445 Android phone, which will probably impress more with an affordable price tag than features.

We'll also see a bunch of unpretending phones such as the LG Octane VN530 (touchscreen feature phone), LG VN270 (some kind of replacement to the Cosmos), Pantech Crux and ZTE Salute, both of which would be basic entry-level handsets looking for their place to call home in this smartphone-dominated world.

In addition, Verizon seems to be looking at extending its netbook lineup by adding the Dell Vostro V13 and HP Pavilion DM1-2010.

October:
Mid to late October is where it's supposed to get exciting, with a possible launch of the RIM BlackBerry Storm 3 9570. Interestingly, our source mentioned that the Storm 3 will run BB OS 6, but will still feature a Sure Press touchscreen. That would be strange, given the Torch has made the move to the far more proven capacitive tech. The other surprise for BlackBerry fans will be the new Curve 3 9330.

Samsung Fascinate

The Samsung Fascinate, Verizon's version of the Galaxy S, should debut at that time, according to our info. While we have reasons to believe our tipster, this is one detail we certainly hope to be wrong, as it is quite a delay compared to the other carriers' releases of the Galaxy S. Never mind that, along the Fascinate comes the mid-end Android-powered Samsung Continuum I400 and the low-end, but still Android-based and QWERTY-packing Samsung Gem I100. The latter sounds to us like the most affordable Android handset possible.

There's more to be coming in October though, including the Motorola XT610. According to our info, this one will have screen similarly sized to the one of the DROID X, but the handset itself will feature less powerful specs (3.2 or 5MP camera and slower processor). On the other hand, it should be priced accordingly as a mid-range smartphone at $100-$130 on contract. We definitely like the idea of a more affordable 4.3-inch offering, but hope that its slower hardware won't hamper the experience... too much.

Another possible October launch would be the Motorola A957, possibly named Sick. We sure expect this to be one “sick” handset, if you know what we mean. However, further info is still unavailable on it.

Our source indicates that we might see the Palm Pre 2 doing its thing at this time, however, every bit of info regarding this possible successor seems to be held pretty tightly right now.

Finally, the Casio Ravine should come to refresh the line of PTT rugged phones of the carrier.

November:

As we venture later into the year, more and more exciting devices start to show up. Sometime during the second or third week of November, Big Red is said to push the Launch button for the enTourage eDGe (a dual-screen ereader + tablet Android device), as well as an enTourage Pocket device.
