    Just noticed this website for the first time:

    Upcoming Verizon Phones, Verizon Phones Coming Soon & Verizon Android Phones

    That is basically what I wanted this thread to be... It will be interesting to see how well they keep up with the leaks about phones. The biggest obstacle to keeping a list like this is the number of top tier devices that get leaked with no indication of what carriers they are headed.

    I was going to add this to the top posts but it is just too far out there in conceptual land to add yet. Nice catch though.

    Wow, I feel out of the loop! I didn't even realize that the GSIII was locked down... For some reason I thought Samsung was really good about not crippling their products and resisting the pressure the evil carries push to do so.

    It will be extremely interesting to see where the industry is at in about a year when my contract is up and I'm looking for a new device again but won't be able to use my upgrade without losing my unlimited data plan.

    I was under the impression that the providers are the ones locking the bootloaders. Samsung doesn't lock them!

    I read that VZ will sell them locked to prevent any potential damage to their network. I know, "whatever!" LOL
