    Verizon may be in store for a very busy launch day on May 26th if rumors turn out to be true. Previously we mentioned a rumor that the Droid X2 will launch on May 26th. Just a bit ago today we shared a full press release detailing the release of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play on May 26th, and now it looks like the LG Revolution will launch for VZW on that same day. An inventory listing at Best Buy indicates they will get it shipped on May 25th, which seems to back up the May 26th release date rumor. What do you guys think of these phones?

    The LG Revolution looks slick, I hope the specs stack up.

    Crap. I guess you could get the X2 and use the Revolution as a mobile 4G hotspot for it. Not a bad idea with a BOGO deal.

    I think Verizon is having problems incorporating 4g with dual core phones. I already have a phone with a super amoled screen and 1ghz single core. Verizon needs to step up their game.

    Hmm, if it's 3G dual core X2 or the single core 4G Revolution then tough decisions will be made...

    some of the specs i saw for the LG rev were just to far behind the race. i would pick TB or charge any day over the LG rev.

    but would prolly go X2 over most of them. certainly over the lg rev.

    What the hell, Bing? Damn, Verizon needs to pull their heads out of their arses. It's cool they went with all black though, much better than the silver. Specs suck considering the android competition right now, but who knows maybe once this is rooted it may be ok.

    Don't forget that the Revolution was the phone vzw showed off doing VoLTE.
