Location Data Gets An Important New Layer: The Alcohol Layer

AndroidSpin just got their mitts on this supposed snapshot of T-Mobile’s end-of-the-year launch roadmap, and, after about 20 minutes of squinting, I think we’ve got most of it deciphered.

Here’s what we’ve gleaned from it so far:

  • The Samsung Vibrant (Android) will launch on July 21st — which we knew.
  • The Motorola Charm (Android) (which was announced sans launch date this morning) is also set to debut on July 21st.
  • Looks like RIM will be launching something (though not so much as a name is given) in early September. If I had to guess, I’d wager that’d be the Curve 9300.
  • HTC should be debuting an Android handset currently known as the HTC Vanguard on September 9th. This is the first we’ve heard of it.
  • Early November brings the “Emerald”. The rumor mill has been spinning its gears about something called “Project Emerald” for a few weeks now, with the most recent rumors suggesting that it’s going to be one of HTC’s first Android 3.0 phones.
  • It looks like the HTC Shubert might launch around November 17th. From what I’ve heard, the Shubert will be one of HTC’s first Windows Phone 7 handsets.
  • Around November 3rd, Motorola looks to be lining up to launch two Android handsets: one’s called Jordan, and I think that other one reads “Begonia”. This is the first we’ve heard about these ones.

Alas, not much by way of new details — but at least we have tentative launch dates for all of these for whenever the rest of the details show up.
