    A source for Droid-Life passed along a leaked screen shot of workshop dates for some Verizon handsets.

    The leaked screenshot listed two unknown models, the LG Cayman and the DROID Fighter. The workshop dates for the pair are listed as March 29th and April 12th respectively.
    Although these are not launch dates, we still could find out quite a bit about the duo next week at Barcelona.

    I read somewhere earlier that it could possibly be the HTC handset we saw leaked images of last week?

    +1 on the name!

    The Droid Fighter does have a good ring to it, would go well with a Ducati Streetfighter :)

    Fighter is good. Tie Fighter would've been even better.

    Meh, I think it will be more interesting to see what happens at the end of the year.

    I'm fine with that as long as it's a device with top specs.

    Careful. That's how I ended up going another 11 months without purchasing anything :)

    In all seriousness its smart to wait and get what you REALLY want. Don't settle even if it takes you into Q4. I'm still very satisfied with my purchase because I didn't settle or get victimized by the Hype Beast. Careful with him, he's a very enticing beast :)

    It isn't just Motorola. Lucasfilm gave Verizon permission to use "DROID" for their Android lineup. There have been a couple non-Moto phones with the DROID name on it...but notice it's only within Verizon. No other carrier has it.

    Yeah, but at some point you have to make a decision and be happy with what you get...as so many others have said. Phone tech gets one-upped so fast now, its nearly impossible to keep up. So you just gotta make the best choice for yourself at some point. I've stuck with my DX since day one even though there have been a few others since then that have been a temptation. I'm eligible for an upgrade beginning next month and I might start scoping things out then more carefully.

    I was looking at the rezound and the rmaxx last weekend and was going to get the rmaxx. But here I'm not eligible til march 7. Conveniently though they were pushing my upgrade on my daughter cause her blackberry is a piece of ****. How's that work??????? But hey it is what it is and now I'll just wait on the new phones.

    Hey, if you need a phone - then you need a phone. But if anyone doesn't desperately need a phone I think it would be crazy to buy anything right now, Krait is on the horizon and TI OMAP 5430 and other Cortex A15 SoC's should be shipping (hopefully) later this year. These will be a big architectural leap forward.

    I know this. I didn't say that Motorola is the only manufacture using the Droid name or ask why no other carrier has a DROID phone. I asked why do they keep using it. Makes the DROID line look like a bunch of regular phones instead of what it used to be - the first of its kind line. Not to mention they have put some subpar phones on the line. *cough X2, Bionic cough*
