    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.
