Verizon Gets Android Overload: Revolution, Trophy And Droid X2

It's a pretty big week for releases over on Verizon Wireless. The largest carrier in America just recently shipped the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, and a couple of big names will be joining that guy. LG's Revolution, HTC's Trophy and Motorola's Droid X2 also ship this week.

That's a pretty stout lineup of phones, and we'll confess -- not too many other carriers in America are popping out mega-phones like this on a regular basis. This also signals the massive influence of Android on the market. Just a few years ago, you had to hunt down an Android phone. Now, you have to hunt through a wave of Android phones to find anything else. It's good to see a serious competitor surface to rival the iPhone, and while Gingerbread is impressive, we get the feeling that the next version of iOS -- if announced at WWDC -- will put Google back on the offensive.

At any rate, those looking to get themselves a new Android smartphone for the Memorial Day break can pony up $200 on contract for any of these new guys.
