One apiece from Samsung, Motorola, and HTC

While it's no secret that Verizon will be unveiling a number of LTE-enabled devices at the CES 2011 conference this weekend, details of three devices have emerged via Brighthand.

First up is the Motorola Olympus/Etna/Thunderbolt. Reportedly running on NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chip, the Android-based device sports a 4.1-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, a front-facing VGA camera, HDMI port, and Android 2.3 with Sense UI.

Then, we've got the HTC Droid Incredible HD/"Mecha". On the hardware front, it should be very similar to Sprint's HTC EVO 4G, with the addition of a rumored dual-core 1.2 MHz Qualcomm processor. The Incredible HD sports a 4.3-inch WXGA touchscreen with 1280 x 800 screen resolution. Like the Olympus, it, too, will sport an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and a front-facing VGA shooter for video chat.

Finally, Brighthand reports that we can expect the Samsung SCH-I520, a Froyo-equipped Android device with another 8-megapixel camera, to be outted at CES as well. Both, the Thunderbolt and the SCH-I520 have shown up in Verizon inventories.

QWERTY Keyboard

Why is it that all the new Android phones being released fail to incorporate a real qwerty keyboard? The last Verizon Android phone released with a real keyboard was the Droid/Droid2. My fingers are to fat to use a virtual keyboard effectively.

Possibly the Verizon version of the T-Mobile G2. Sprint just got the Evo Shift 4G, basically a G2 with a CDMA/WiMAX radio. Rumor has it, its coming under the HTC Merge name. :/

I was really excited about the Merge... unfortunately seems to be delayed indefinitely at the moment.

It definitely seems like its taking a back seat to the more prominent flagship devices. By the time it does come out, its MSM7630/Adreno 205 will be pretty dated.

The fingers you have used to dial are too fat, to obtain a special dialing wand please mash the keypad with your palm now.

Bigger screen = bigger virtual keyboard.

A device like Droid X or HTC Evo will have ample virtual keyboard size.

Yeah but they are really uncomfortable to carry around in my pocket due to the devices large size. I think the Droid/Droid2 has a perfect form factor, unfortunately those devices are already becoming outdated in respect to hardware. I think the 3.7in screen of the Droid/Droid2 is a perfect balance of screen size that is neither too small nor too big.
