A leaked Verizon Wireless data sheet, outlining its upcoming smartphone and mobile phone roster, hit the Web this week, offering insight into release dates for some long-awaited smartphones, including the BlackBerry Storm 2, the BlackBerry Curve 2 and the Google Android-based Motorola Sholes, among others.
The Verizon Wireless road map curiously leaves out the Verizon version of the Palm Pre, which Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam said would be available via Verizon by the end of the year. In a May Webcast, McAdam said the Palm Pre and another device from Palm, along with the BlackBerry Storm 2, would reach Verizon’s network within six months.

The Pre has helped Palm salvage its previously rapidly declining smartphone business but is suspected of only having a short-term edge at present because of its exclusivity to Sprint in the US and international sales that will only start next week, when Bell Canada offers its version. The Eos is rumored to be the first webOS phone for the US outside of Sprint and could cost half the price of the Pre. In 2010, the Pre is expected to reach AT&T and Verizon.
