    Verizon Summer Catalog Leaks! Droid 2 Unofficially Now "Official"



    Boy Genius Report just got its hands on the Verizon Wireless 2010 Summer Catalog. And surprisingly, the Droid 2 is showing its face "officially" for the first time, as it has found its way onto the "Devices" page! Of course, the cover only had room for its big brother, the Droid X, but it is great to finally see the Droid 2 made "official" by Verizon Wireless. Besides that, there really are no other surprises in the Summer Catalog. The "technical specs" page lists the exact specs we have expected (and confirmed?) for quite a long time: 1Ghz CPU, 5MP camera (no 720p capture), slide-out QWERTY, 8GB ROM/512MB RAM, 8GB SDcard, and 3G Mobile Hotspot. There is no mention of its version of Android, but we suspect that by the time it launches (latest rumors have it at the end of August), it will be running FroYo.



    Curiously absent from the Summer Guide is the Samsung Fascinate (a.k.a. Galaxy S). We wonder, has the Fascinate been put on hold by Verizon, in order to showcase the new Droids? Considering T-Mobile and AT&T are both releasing their variant of the Galaxy S in a matter of days, I'd hope that Verizon Wireless follows suit shortly thereafter. But in the name of branding and profitability, it does make sense to delay the non-Droid Fascinate, at least until the new Droids have run their course.

    Another interesting item to note, on the "Applications" page, you will find a large "Bing" logo. Has Verizon finally begun to fulfill its contract with Microsoft to have Bing Search and Maps pre-installed on all its latest smartphones? We already heard that the Fascinate will be Bing-driven, but what about the Droid X, Droid 2, and others? Only time will tell. Side note: The Droid X will likely not have Bing as default, considering the already-shipped Droid X devices are absent of Bing.




    Finally, the "Plans and Pricing" page seems unchanged, to the relief of some. Unlimited Data pricing remains at $29.99/mo.



    Is there anything noteworthy from the Summer Guide that we missed, or something in particular the peaked your interest? Let us know!

    No way the Droid X will use Bing for it's default search and maps. Too many reviewers already already have the phone in their hands and there hasn't been any mention of it.

    from the Catalog, it seems that the Fascinate won't be released this summer.
